Flamestrike Archery founder Lydia O’Donoghue and Stratford Town Football Club (STFC) have joined forces to launch a six-week ‘Archery for Girls’ course.

Lydia Lee, coach and founder of Flamestrike Archery, is now enrolling girls aged 8-11 onto a new archery course near Stratford-upon-Avon in a bid to increase inclusivity and boost confidence. It is thanks to the help and support of Stratford Town Football Club that the course has a location to run from. Jed McCrory, Chair of Stratford Town FC, sees the initiative as the start of a wider plan to “… link the club closer to the Stratford community”.

About the course

Where: Stratford Town Football Club (STFC), Tiddington, Warwickshire

When:  4pm-5pm for 6 weeks from 22 April

Cost: £90

Flamestrike Archery is also taking bookings for corporate taster events, and these events are great for small teams or solopreneurs looking to connect with others. Each corporate event also funds a place for a young girl nominated by a local community group, who would otherwise not be able to attend the girls’ sessions. Stratford Archers proudly supplies equipment for the courses and events.
