On Target Community Specialism Club
Braintree Bowmen has become one of a handful of clubs across the UK to be classified as a Community club as part of Archery GB’s club development programme, ontarget.
Being recognised as a Community club is a positive step for the club as it works hard to be at the heart of its community, provide a fun and social atmosphere with opportunities for all to develop and improve, whilst growing the archers of the future.
The club also benefits from being involved as Community specialism clubs seek to explore ways to allow the local community easy access to the sport, consistently working towards providing opportunities for as many people as possible and is aware of the barriers that exist but seeks out solutions to overcome them. Community specialist clubs will be seen as places where people can enjoy a high quality archery experience with excellent social, training and competition opportunities.
The club joins 29 others across the country in achieving the award.
“The club is in a great position to be a beacon for archery. Archery GB, through the ontarget programme, is recognising and rewarding clubs that are working hard in specific areas of the sport.” commented Arran Coggan, national club development coordinator.
