Could you be our next Club Coach?

The committee are looking to support a number of club members to gain their Level 1 coaching certificate.

With the introduction of a new coach training programme, the Level 1 coach has been renamed as Session Coach, – but the role remains the same – to deliver beginners sessions which help people new to archery get the most out of the experience.

The training for a Session Coach involves three full days of course work, then 12 hours supported practice at the club, followed by an assessment day.

Session Coaches in Aire Valley help run the beginners courses and novice sessions throughout the year and any new coaches would be expected to take an active part in these.

The club runs 3 beginners courses a year on Saturday mornings, and a number of novice sessions once a month (in summer on Monday evenings and in winter on a Saturday or Sunday morning).

If you are interested in applying for support to become a Session Coach, please email Bev (coach@aire-valley-archers.co.uk) outlining your reasons for wishing to become a coach and what you think you can bring to the role, by 16th February.

If you wish to have more information about coaching in the club please also contact Bev or one of the other club coaches.

More general information on the course can be found here:

Happy New Year!
Good evening,
We hope to post an update about the outdoor range later this week but for now here are some other things to keep you up to date.
Indoor Range
The indoor range remains open and is being well used.
From 1st October to 31st December on average 8 archers are using it at each session.
We have managed to keep hold of our Wednesday booking through to the end of March.
The session times we have at the indoor range are as follows;
Tuesday 7pm till 9pm (See note 1)
Wednesday 7pm till 9pm (See note 2)
Thursday 6.30pm till 8pm (See note 3)
Fridays 7pm till 9pm
Saturday 2pm till 4pm
Sunday 2pm till 4pm
Note 1 – This is “Club Night”
Note 2 – Wednesday evening was introduced as an additional night this year and is proving popular and taking some of the strain of Tuesday night
Note 3 – This is “Junior Night” and preference will be given to Juniors, though Seniors may shoot if there is space available.
If you need any information on or about the Indoor Range then please look back at the update email sent on 20th December 2019.

Annual General Meeting
Our next AGM will be held on Sunday 14th June at 12 Noon at the clubhouse up at St Ives.
The constitution dictates that all current members of the committee must resign at the meeting and all posts are then re-elected. It is up to the current post holder if they chose to stand for re-election. Any member may nominate themselves for any of the positions.
Ian Brooks has already indicated that he does not intend to stand for re-election to the Treasures role.
If you want further information on what roles are part of the committee please look at the documents displayed  at the Indoor and Outdoor range and available on the club website and on Facebook.
