New recruits wanted for Archery GB Ambassador Programme

2021 ambassadors and mentors

Archery GB is on the look out for more inspiring ambassadors to help grow our sport and get more people picking up a bow.

In December 2018, Archery GB launched its Ambassador and Mentor Programme, to develop and support a community of inspiring archery ambassadors and to show the power of volunteering.

We are delighted with the huge impact our team of inspirational mentors and ambassadors has achieved. They have done an amazing job in raising the profile and increasing participation in archery within their local communities, clubs and nationally. To find out what motivated some of our ambassadors to get involved in the programme, please click on the links below: –

Please take a look at the infographics below to see the huge impact our team of ambassadors and mentors have had in promoting archery, as well as on their own personal development.

Thank you to Clickers who were the official partner of the ambassador and mentor programme, enabling us to provide a team t-shirt and hoodie for volunteers and an Arrows kit, to help deliver archery within the local community.

We are now looking to recruit a second group of ambassadors. If you are aged 11 years or above, either a new or experienced volunteer, who has a passion to promote and develop archery, then we want to hear from you!

For more information, please download the Ambassador Programme Promotional Leaflet at the bottom of this page and complete the Expression of Interest Form and return to Gayle Pink by Monday 31 January 2022. If you have any questions, then please email gayle.pink@archerygb.org

You can also join a webinar to find out more information about the 2022 Ambassador Programme on 20 January 2022. Please book onto the webinar by logging into the Membership Portal, through our course finder or email gayle.pink@archerygb.org. You can also watch a video about a previous Ambassador Gathering here.

For inspiration, please take a look at a couple of examples of how our ambassadors have promoted archery at a national level:

Archery GB Young Ambassador Max Oakley helped raise the profile of archery with a great interview published in bsporty online magazine.

Bsporty is a monthly, subscription-based magazine that covers many different types of sports for children aged seven to 14 years of age. The magazine’s editor, Katie James, made contact with Max through Archery GB, and his interview that covers how he first got into archery to training and benefits of joining a club, is now working to inspire other children to take up the sport. Max won Archery GB’s ontarget Young Volunteer of the Year Award earlier this year, and is certainly living up to it.

Helen Sharpe was interviewed for Parasport’s Spotlight On series to show how she went over and above to support disabled and vulnerable archers during lockdown.
