If you are new to archery, you will need to have completed a Beginners Course and received a Certificate before you can become a member. Members of other Clubs are also more than welcome to shoot with us upon payment of our weekly shoot fees and evidence of GNAS membership.
We are a community club and whilst the coaches are qualified and more than happy to give their time to teach others, this is on a voluntary basis. It is therefore expected that other members will help out with general tasks (once trained), such as setting out equipment, putting it away and being a line captain.
Please note: Under 18′s must be accompanied by an adult
Membership fees include SCAS (regional) membership fees, KAA (county) membership fees and GNAS membership fees, the latter of which includes your insurance and all of which are compulsory. GNAS fees are apportioned and, depending on what time of the year you join, the total costs are currently as follows:
For seniors (aged 18 and over), joining between:
- 1st October and 31st December the total fee is £55.00 (including £10.00 Membership fee)
- 1st January and 31st March the total fee is £45.25 (including £10.00 Membership fee)
- 1st April and 30th June the total fee is £35.50 (including £10.00 Membership fee)
- 1st July and 30th September the total fee is £19.75 (including £10.00 Membership fee)
This fee covers you for the remainder of the year, with the following year being renewable on the 1st October, at the annual rate of £55.00
For juniors (aged under 18), there is a flat rate total membership fee, including insurance of £10.00, renewable on the 1st October each year.
If your membership fees are unpaid you will not be allowed to shoot!
This is because you will not be insured
