As of 1st January 2016, Archery falls under the Adventurous Activities Permit Scheme and leaders will no longer be required to hold the Archery GB Instructor Award in order to instruct archery, instead they will be required to hold an Archery Permit. Over the past year we have been busy recruiting and training County Archery Assessors and have created the County Target Shooting Team. The new team of assessors are;
- Jon Lloyd – County
- Nigel Evans – County Archery Advisor
- Brian Kinsella – Burton
- Don Longhurst – Potteries North
- Neil Rose – Tamworth
- Julie Geens – Moorlands
- Phil Ward – Moorlands
How to get an Archery Permit
There are two ways to get a permit
- Hold the Archery GB Instructor Award (or higher) and have an assessor complete the technical recommendation for a permit
- Attend one of the Team’s new Archery Permit Courses. The Team will be running 2 day courses throughout the year and will be similar to the Archery GB course but at a fraction of the price. At the end of the course the majority of participants should go away with a permit recommendation.
Archery Permit Courses
- 1.5 days of training in running, setting up and maintaining an Archery range.
- .5 day assessment for an archery permit based upon your experience and participation on the course
- A copy of The Archery for Beginners Guidebook
- Refreshments will be provided (please bring your own lunch)
- Accommodation will be available in the building but you will need to provide you own meals.
