Performance Vision

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.  



Performance Programme

Pathway Squad

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.

Planning and Decisions

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


Barebow Performance

We eagerly await the result of World Archery Congress on the 1st and 2nd of June particularly the changes to law around the standing of the barebow category (motion 16, which can be found in folder 17 of the congress documents which are available on the World Archery website). This will present new challenges and require a lot of change. It would also provide opportunities to all of our members who shoot barebow to access our existing programs currently in place for compound and recurve archers.

SportsAid Scotland

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.
