Become an Archery GB Competition Volunteer

Volunteering at club level or at an Archery GB event, can be very rewarding especially in a sport that you love.

Often people want to give something back to the sport they have enjoyed over the years so volunteering is an ideal opportunity.

Each year we run and support many record status competitions. Volunteers have always played a vital part in helping us organise these events successfully, and without them, our sport simply wouldn’t happen.

Whilst it may be hard work, it gives you the opportunity to make new friends, develop new skills and the chance to support the successful running of elite level competitions.
