Archery is a sport with many participation levels - there is something for everyone, from fun club leagues to full-blown international competition and there are lots of award badges and records you can collect on the way.

Scotland has a full calendar of events including Indoor, Outdoor, Field and Target, Area and Scottish Championships held each year.

Many archers go to compete just for enjoyment, others compete to win a medal and to score enough points to get an Area, Scottish or UK ranking and selection to an Area or Scottish squad or team.  There are several annual competitions where Scottish archers can achieve representative honours.

Additionally for those prepared to travel, there are tournaments all around England, Wales & Northern Ireland.  Over the years there have frequently been Scottish archers on the GB Teams taking part and winning medals in International events including the Olympics, the Paralympics, the World Student Games and the Commonwealth Senior and Youth Games.
