     Yankton, South Dakota is the home of National Field Archery Association Foundation, and the first of the Easton Foundations Archery Centers. Situated on nearly 100 acres; the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center includes three outdoor field ranges, a 3D range, two FITA ranges, a 90m indoor range with a raised viewers’ mezzanine, 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, the NFAA Foundation and Easton Foundations broke ground again with an expansion that added 26,000 square feet and extended the building to include the World’s first indoor 90-meter range and an archery distribution warehouse. The new range open in early 2012, just in time to host the Paralympic archery team as they trained for the London Paralympics. The range has 18 targets with 36 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 shooting lanes 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 during the various events. Easton Field will serve as the official competition field for Recurve competitors during the 2015 World Archery Youth Championships and First Dakota Field will function as the official competition field for Compound archers; June 8-14, 2015.
