The Nonsuch Bowmen welcomes junior archers from the age of 10. Our juniors have made great achievements in archery, with some becoming County Champions, competing for Surrey and taking part in Archery GB’s Talent Programme!
Junior archers are welcome the same as any other full member, but are also offered “Junior Sessions” 5 times a year throughout the warmer months! These sessions provide regular coaching and novelty fun shoots, keeping archery enjoyable.
During the usual club shooting sessions, we always try to provide alternative rounds at the distances suitable for the various age groups (U18, U16, U14 & U12), so as long as the archers arrive 15 minutes prior to our published assembly times, it will be possible to set up the necessary targets.
To see more about how well our juniors are getting on, please visit our Junior News page.
Please be aware that The Nonsuch Bowmen will not accept any responsibility of care towards junior archers. This means that a parent or guardian MUST remain with the junior archer at all times, including actively supervising them while they are shooting, to both ensure that they are safe and are able to get home afterwards.
The Nonsuch Bowmen has subscribed in full to the Archery GB’s policy on the Protection of Children & Vulnerable Adults. Our own policy can be found here. Because we are in compliance with this policy it means that:
