Development Ambassadors

Scottish Archery is pleased to launch an exciting new project called Development Ambassadors that has been created through new investment of £24,340 from the Scottish Government through the Voluntary Action Fund.


The Archery community in Scotland is all about people and the time that everyone gives to run the sport and to provide opportunities for people to access the sport.  Through this new investment, Scottish Archery has created a Development Ambassadors programme that will engage around 60 new volunteers over 3 years from the age of 16 years plus and provide education and upskill opportunities in a number of aspects including Archery Instructors Award, Club Governance, Club Operations, Social Media, Soft Archery and partnership working.


We will align with our 3 areas, Northern, West and Eastern to educate a group in the above aspects that will then be distributed into the club and area network within the sport.

The skills that the volunteers receive will be transferable and can be utilised in other walks of life therefore developing the person as well as the sport.


The successful Development Ambassadors will be part of the programme for 1 year where they will benefit from a variety of learning opportunities as well as practical experience through engagement with our affiliated clubs. The skills that are learnt throughout the programme will be fully transferable and will boost CV and employability or strengthen our already existing club network.
