Calling all juniors. Do you want a fun-packed summer full of shooting and competing? And the chance to show off your skills at top events, alongside the best archers in the UK? Then we can help!

You could be shooting at this year’s Key Event final, which will be part of our prestigious National Tour finals at Caldicot Castle in South Wales. But there’s only one way to make sure of your place…you have to compete in our Key Events. And the good news is that there are still some places available!

They are:

  • Key Event 1: Junior Masters, 18 May, Oxford. (By invitation only.)
  • Key Event 2: Aim4Sport, 22 – 23 June, Shuttleworth College, Bedfordshire.
  • Key Event 3: Archery GB Youth Festival, 28 July – 2 August, Lilleshall

How do you qualify for the Key Event final, which will be held 28-29 September?

An athlete’s best two qualification round scores from any of the three key stage events will be used to form a ranking and the top six athletes in the below disciplines will be invited to take part. The following will be in the finals:

  • Recurve – cadet 60m and junior 70m
  • Compound – 50m (combined junior and cadet)

Junior Outdoor National Championships

And if you are looking for another fun-packed weekend, there are still a few places left at the Junior Outdoor National Championships. They are being held at Lilleshall on 6 -7 July. You can find out more here.

All our national junior tournaments are being supported – as they have been for the past 30 years – by Wales Archery.

Kevin Weller, a partner at Wales Archery, said: “Having supported junior championships through three generations of our family business it is with great excitement that we look forward to our extended commitment to developing junior archery in the UK going forward and our partnership with Archery GB.”
