Our vision is to enable archers to reach Archery GB squads and teams, offering international experience through Team events and funding archers who perform at a top level on the national stage.
This page outlines the performance programme, available to Scottish Archery members.
Squad sessions are held during the indoor season in order for archers to improve their performance technique, competitive shooting, mental preparation and season planning. Details of how to join the Squad are contained in the documents below along with a training diary and plan template.
Not all archers will be able to take part in the Pathway Squad, but will also compete at a high level. There is some financial support available for archers performing well. Please see the details in the documents below;
Details of events where we will be sending a Scotland Team are available here;
There are two groups which make decisions about performance alongside the Director of Performance;
- Performance group, this consists of Board members and staff and consults on matters to do with policy and planning.
- Performance subcommittee, this is a stand-alone committee, consists of three senior archers and will convene when selection matters arise for teams and squads. Members will be asked to sit on the committee as and when it is needed this will remain fluid to avoid conflicts of interest that may arise depending on the archers in question for selection. Names of those who sit on the committee for a session where they have decided on selection matters will be published.
It is our aim to be as transparent as possible. If you have any questions about performance matters, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SportsAid Scotland is a charity that provides financial assistance in the form of grant awards to talented sporting youngsters in the 12 to 22 year age range and to disability athletes up to age 45 who are already competing at national level in their age group and have the potential to represent Scotland at senior level. The finance given is to help the athletes with their travel and training costs, and will hopefully assist them in becoming Scotland's future sporting stars.
Scottish Archery will put out a notice annually, calling for applications.
All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean.
One of your goals might be to make it on to one of the performance squads and teams and shoot for Team GB
