Get Involved

University archery development has been successful in recent years, with 50 affiliated clubs (as of April 2017) and increasing attendance by archers at competitions. The work over the upcoming academic year aims to provide further support and resource to HE archery clubs.

The Archery GB Higher Education programme will include;

•    The formation of new university clubs

•    The continuation of the new HE archery development group

More information on these key areas can be found on the left hand column of this page. 

Throughout the programme Archery GB will work alongside clubs, universities, BUCS, Sport England and County Sport Partnerships.

Archery in the UK is powered by volunteers and it’s these volunteers who do so much to make sure archery is enjoyable and accessible. Archery GB would like to recruit more volunteers and we’re seeking expressions of interest from a wide variety of volunteers who are interested in becoming Archery GB Student Ambassadors.


You need to be a member of Archery GB, have a passion for the sport, a desire to share that passion and help others to enjoy the benefits of archery. You may already be volunteering in archery or want to get more involved in helping your university club develop.


The Ambassador programme focuses on providing student volunteers with a unique opportunity to develop their skills and experiences to support their long-term career development. To ensure our Ambassadors have everything they need to make the most of this opportunity, Archery GB will provide a programme of training, mentored support, access to an online hub, resources and guidelines, equipment and branded clothing. Training will include the opportunity to complete the Youth Sport Trust – Youth Sport Award to evidence Ambassadors’ learning, progress and achievements.
