Volunteering

The club would be nothing without the help of volunteering members. We encourage everyone to help out at club-organised events.

Competitions and events: you can assist at competitions by being present before, during or after the event in order to help setting up, moving targets, looking for lost arrows (yup, this happens) and putting the targets away at the end. You don’t have to stay all day and can just come and help for a couple of hours.

For those who like things that are a bit more involved:

Mentoring: if you are an experienced archer you can help newer/less experienced members by encouraging them on the shooting line, sharing experience and giving them advice. You don’t need to be a coach, you just need to be willing!

Coaching: if you want to take things further you can qualify to become a coach. Coaching courses are run at regular intervals in Scotland. The club and the Scottish Archery Association can also help you with funding.

Join the committee: committee members are elected once a year at the AGM. If you would like to give it a go then be sure to speak to an existing member of the committee to leanr more about the roles and what they involve.
