Help Run a Club

Club sport is the backbone of every sport and if clubs are to develop and grow then many skills other than keeping minutes, simple accounting and planning are required and so members who volunteer their skills and experience are very valuable whether that is carpentry skills to build target stands or strategic and management skills to help the club develop.

There is a lot of advice and help available to clubs and also a number of grants available to aid development so here we outline the resources that are available to help you run your club and make it the best it can be. Contact our Club Development Officer for more info

Falkirk Company of Archers - an ontarget club

Falkirk go ontarget

Falkirk Company of Archers has been a member of the Archery GB ontarget programme since it started about 5 years ago and was awarded Community Specialism Club status. Recently they successfully retained this status after completing a regular self assessment.

As part of the programme there are also two other specialisms - Young People and Performance. The Young People specialism is aimed at clubs that want to develop participation of young people, while Performance specialism is designed for clubs that want to get the best out of all their archers and coaches.

The club decided to apply for these other two specialisms and following an assessment process they have been successful and the club now holds all three specialisms. They believe they are the first club in Scotland to hold all three specialisms. Their Club Secretary says :

"Being a member of this scheme provides the club with good opportunities, resources and assistance from Archery GB in terms of development. It shows that the club is proactive which is often recognised on funding applications. I would recommend any club to apply."
