Added benefits

  • Library: The club holds a library of archery books which can be loaned to members.
  • Tools: We also have a growing volume of ‘tools’ that all archers would like to have, but few can afford, including arrow straighteners, arrow cutters,  fletching jigs etc,  All of these are available for free loan, or for use with an instructor or coach.

Please contact the committee if you would like to loan equipment.

What the club expects

On a week to week basis whether its be at Outdoor, or Indoor, members are required to help set up/take down targets where they can.
Throughout the year, the club holds a number of events. These events bring in very important revenue to the club, revenue that, had we not obtained it through events, we would have otherwise require us to raise our fees quite substantially. Hence we do ask of members, that they reserve at least a few hours per year in helping us maintain, prepare, or help run, these events. The work is very diverse, from helping juniors to score their arrows, or helping to run a Tea tent.

Club colours

Although it is not mandatory, Crawley Archery Club has its own colours in the form of polo shirts / hoodies / jackets for members to wear, while on the shooting line or at competition.

We have changed our supplier this year to Kudos, and as a result our shirt has undergone some slight design changes. Details about the  new design/sizes can be found in the Club Colours Guide.

If you are interested, please contact: captain@crawleyarcheryclub.co.uk with type, quantity, size, M/F/J and name option for the Polo shirt if applicable.

Interested in becoming a coach?

Archery GB provide specific training for archers wishing to become coaches. This training is modular, so LEVEL 1 coaches are trained in how to impart the sport to novices, to ensure the safety of participants, and bring novices to a level suitable for joining an archery club. LEVEL 2 develops these skills to enable the coach to review and improve a club archer and tune equipment.

The Sussex coaching body, MARTLETTS GUILD, hold a LEVEL 1 coach courses usually running over three dates, with participants expected to put in another 12 hours of training at their clubs. The fee for the course is anticipated to be around £250.00, plus expense of travel.

Crawley Archery Club offers sponsorship to this course, in return for the then qualified coach participating in future beginners courses. The coach may subsequently participate in additional coaching events, and is able to seek remuneration for their participation in these. If you are interested in becoming a coach, and are considering the club’s sponsorship, then please contact the chair to discuss it in more detail: chair@crawleyarcheryclub.co.uk.
