Calling all clubs and volunteers: Start Archery Week is back!

19 Feb 2024

Start Archery Week is back, and registration is now open. Giving the archery community the annual opportunity to come together and celebrate our great sport, this event is your opportunity to showcase your club, attract new members, and help us create a buzz around archery.

Start Archery Week is gearing up for 2024, and we're calling on clubs and volunteers to join the movement and host your own archery event.

This year Start Archery Week will take place from Saturday 4 May to Sunday 12 May and has two themes: mental health and the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games. This year we'd like our clubs and organisations to shout about just how good our sport is for mental health and wellbeing. As part of the SAW Toolkit, we’re supplying a list of ways your club could incorporate good mental wellbeing into your event. Start Archery Week will also officially kick-off Aim for Paris, our summer of celebratory events leading up to the Games. There'll be more information on this coming in the next few months, including how your club can get involved.

Here's why your club should be a part of this national archery event:

Be in the spotlight: Hosting a Start Archery event puts your club on the map. With our media Toolkit, including eye-catching posters and press releases, we'll help you shine a spotlight on your event, attracting archery enthusiasts and newcomers alike.

Expert guidance: Worried about organising the perfect event? Fear not! Our Organisers' Webinar is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to make your event a smashing success.

Connect and learn: Join a network of enthusiastic organisers and clubs as we share experiences, successes, and challenges. Our frequent updates will provide valuable information, from tips on running events to insider insights from clubs that made waves last year.

It's a fantastic opportunity to grow your club's membership and engage with your community ahead of the 2024 Paris Games.

Exclusive merchandise: Exciting news! Stay in the loop about the latest merchandise for 2024. Hosting a Start Archery Week event not only provides an unforgettable experience but also gives you access to exclusive gear that adds an extra element of excitement to your event.
