Structure and People

Our strength lies in our membership who volunteer to run our sport at all levels.  Most of the work is done in our clubs where volunteers  welcome new members and ensure their clubs have a sustainable future.

Our three Areas - East, North and West - are the equivalent of the County sporting structure in England. They administer at a level between club and Home Nation and provide opportunities for competing at Area level within Scotland and against the other Home Nations and English Counties.

Scottish Archery  provides a broad base of services  for its members and clubs across Scotland to help develop the sport including  nurturing our volunteers in the clubs and those that deliver events  as well as our judges and coaches.
