Ambassador and Mentor Programme

Archery in the UK is powered by volunteers within our network of clubs and it is these people that make the archery experience so great for all those involved. We are delighted that our Ambassadors and Mentors Programme is supported by Clickers Archery.

The mentors and ambassadors met for the first time at Lillehsall on 17 & 18 March 2019 and we now have a team of eight Mentors and 25 Ambassadors signed up to the programme. Our new team share passion and enthusiasm for archery and are looking forward to helping raise the profile of the sport and to help increase and grow participation.

We will continue to share information about the work of our mentors and ambassadors and the impact they are having in developing the sport. We appreciate your help in supporting this new workforce and working with us to continue to raise their profiles as ambassadors.

The mentor and ambassador programme will focus on:

  • Club Development: Understand the needs of all club members through surveys/feedback and organise appropriate activities for different types of members.
  • Support: Ensure new and existing members have access to everything they need by being a point of contact or attending club activities.
  • Campaigning: Raise awareness of archery within the local community e.g. school/club Links, Big Weekend, Have a Go sessions and link with other local archery clubs. Also share your stories within Archery GB’s marketing materials!
  • Archery GB Courses, Competitions and Events: Help Archery GB promote, organise and deliver courses, workshops, competitions and events.
  • Volunteer Support: Help clubs recruit, retain, support, recognise and reward volunteers.
