The History of Brevard Archers
In 1981 about a half dozen archers began meeting at each others homes to shoot and talk archery. The late Fred Bremen was one of these gentlemen and became Brevard Archers founding father. The club was originally called Palm Bay Archers based in Palm Bay; the club grew quickly and soon outgrew the back yards of the fledgling membership.
An agreement was reached with Wickham Park to reestablish the archery range originally built by Nova Archers.
The members cut the field lanes were cut and installed target butts, bow racks and benches. Over the years the practice range and 3D range were built. The club now regularly hosts archery competitions and beginner classes thanks to Fred and all of the dedicated archers who followed him.
Brevard Archers is actively involved with many youth programs around the county; with a hands on approach in keeping one of mankind’s oldest abilities fresh in the mind of the next generation.
From the 4-H shoot programs to the Girl Scouts – Brevard Archers has been there to promote our sport of archery; donating targets and equipment, teaching safety lessons along with programs designed to instruct and encourage the young minds of our youth.
