At Scottish Archery we want to make sure everyone can take part in archery in a safe and fun environment, with opportunities to reach their potential

Our purpose

Scottish Archery is a membership association of members within archery clubs and direct members across Scotland. We work together to  develop archery and make it an accessible and enjoyable sport with opportunities for everyone to reach their individual potential whether as a competitor or in a volunteer role.

We receive support and funding from sportscotland and Archery GB  and work with other Scottish Bodies to help further the sport in Scotland. We are a Home Nation within Archery GB.

Here is our current Strategic plan.
