Over 50 UK university archery clubs are affiliated to Archery GB. University archery provides a great opportunity for students to get involved in the sport recreationally or competitively.
The development of new university clubs and the support of existing university clubs has been a focus for archery within the Development Plan 2013-17.
University archery development has been successful, with great attendance by archers at competitions.
Briefly, the Higher Education programme has included;
– The formation of 10 new university clubs
– The continuation of the HE archery development group
– An incentive funding scheme for existing university clubs to apply for if they could demonstrate how they can increase the number of regular archers
There is some great activity going on in university clubs and we want to find out where and how it’s happening! Please complete the case study template to tell us what you do well and we can share ideas and good practice with all university archers.
