Yankton, South Dakota is the home of National Field Archery Association Foundation, and the first of the Easton Foundations Archery Centers. Situated on over 130 acres; the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center includes three outdoor field ranges, a 3D range, two FITA ranges, two 90m indoor ranges, two classrooms, a fitness studio, an art studio and the NFAA Foundation Archery Museum.
In 2007, Yankton beat out several Midwest cities to become the new headquarters’ of the National Field Archery Association (NFAA). The original plan called for a 4,000 square foot office building to house the NFAA staff. In partnership with the NFAA Foundation, the Easton Foundations saw the opportunity to add on to the NFAA Headquarters and create a multi-million-dollar, state-of-the-art archery training facility. With incentives from the City of Yankton, the county and the state of South Dakota; the low cost made it impossible for the Easton Foundation to refuse. With that, the project grew to over 20,000 square feet.
In 2011 and again in 2017, the NFAA Foundation broke ground again with two separate expansion that added a combined 50,000 square feet and extended the building to include the World’s first indoor 90-meter range and an archery distribution warehouse. The ranges have a combined 38 targets with 76 full-length shooting lanes, in a climate-controlled environment for year-round shooting. With movable targets, the range can be set up for shooting at any distance, and can accommodate as many as 80 targets for 18-meter (20 yard) tournaments.
Easton Field and First Dakota Field are 90-meter grass fields with room for a combined 130 targets and 260 shooting lanes. Awnings cover the entire width of the ranges, providing shade for the archers between ends, and a lawn behind the shooting line allows for spectators.
