The RCA junior club has been serving the region since 2000, run by dedicated coaches and volunteers committed to the safety and continual improvement of its junior members.
Under 18s and 25s archers are the next generation of senior archers and receive enthusiastic coaching to help them develop into first-rate archers.
The techniques we practise are universal and form the basis for all bow styles of target archery.
We welcome junior archers from age 8.
Our juniors who go on to higher education are welcome to continue to shoot with our juniors up to the age of 25.
The junior club meets every Friday night when the range is closed from 7:00pm so that juniors can meet, chat and catchup before the coaching session begins.
During the dedicated junior session, the club is closed to all senior archers for shooting, but all club coaches and experienced volunteers are welcome to help.
All RCA coaches are Archery GB qualified, and DBS checked.
We maintain a strict policy of 1:10, where we require the presence of 1 senior archer to 10 juniors to safely run the junior club night.
We shoot a wide variety of rounds over the year, including Portsmouth, Worcester, and WA18, plus original fun shoots and dedicated coaching sessions.
Our experienced performance junior archers are also invited to extra coaching sessions and are encouraged to join Lancs Junior Squad which meets once a month for county level coaching.
