Scottish Archery is a membership association of archery clubs within Scotland. We work together to develop archery and make it an accessible and enjoyable sport with opportunities for everyone to reach their individual potential whether as a competitor or in a volunteer role.
We receive support and funding from sportscotland and we are also associated to the Scottish Sports Association and work with other Scottish Bodies to help further the sport in Scotland. We are a Home Nation within the UK governing body, Archery GB.
The Scottish Archery Association (SAA) is a company limited by guarantee and is governed by a Board elected by the membership.
