City Credential Class

The City of Pasadena now requires that all archers carry a City-issued Safety Certification card while using the Lower Arroyo Archery Range from sunrise to sunset, Monday through Friday, and from 2:30 p.m to sunset on weekends. In order to obtain the certification card, the City of Pasadena requires archers to participate in a range safety course. (Note: The safety card is not required when participating in PRA’s First-Time or Returning Archer classes on Saturday mornings.)

The Pasadena Roving Archers developed the safety curriculum and teach it on the first and third Saturday of every month, from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. The City Safety Certification course familiarizes archers with the range rules, target layout, and safe archery practices expected of all archers who use the range. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for check-in.  The class meets at the main range. You may register online for the class using the form below.

At the conclusion of your course, PRA will submit your contact information to the City of Pasadena. The city will mail directly to you your City Safety Certification Card.

While equipment review is not required, PRA  instructors offer a courtesy inspection.

For additional information about the new laws and enforcement, please contact the Pasadena Police Department or Pasadena Roving Archers.

If you are not able to attend class on a Saturday, we occasionally offer the class during the week. Please email us at if you are interested in a midweek class.
