Ontarget – Aiming for a strong and healthy club network

ontarget is Archery GB's club development programme. The programme first launched in 2010 and aims to equip grassroots level archery with the structure, vision and support it needs to help the sport and its participants flourish and grow.

By engaging with the programme, clubs can enable the better retention and reduction of churn by providing the activities that their members want, creating an atmosphere within the club that provides for an improved quality of experience

2021 ontarget Club and Volunteer Awards

Because of the year we’ve just been through, it is appropriate for 2021 to slightly change the ontarget awards to reflect the incredible efforts that people have shown in keeping archery ‘healthy’. Therefore, we are delaying the awards this year to allow time to submit nominations. More information to follow soon!

Clubs wishing to sign up to ontarget, or renew their status, can do so through our members’ portal. The downloadable application form (see below) provides an opportunity to see the standard questions asked when joining the ontarget programme.
