Experienced Archers

City of Cambridge bowmen welcomes new members with experience. If you would like to join us the first step is to email the Club Captain, who will arrange for you to visit the club and answer any questions. If you are returning to archery after a break we may ask to see you shoot and make certain that you are familiar with the rules of shooting.

Please do not just turn up at the club. Make contact before visiting so that we can make sure someone is on hand who can help you.

Please note that the club shares a field with other sports during the outdoor season. As a result we do not allow our members to shoot ‘pure-carbon’ arrows outdoors. Full details of our arrow policy are below. If you are unsure whether your arrows are suitable please check before you shoot.

Coaching

The club currently has several qualified coaches available that are able to provide coaching sessions, throughout the year, free to all members. Please speak to the committee or coaches to find out more.

If you are interested in one to one coaching or becoming a coach then please contact our coaching team.

Club Arrow Policy

During the outdoor season the club shares a field with several other sports. As a result any missing arrows must be found before the end of each session. To aid in this the club has adopted the following policy on outdoor arrows:

  • All arrows must be clearly labelled with an archer’s name or initials, and individually numbered.
  • Archers must know at all times how many arrows they have in their possession, in their quiver, and how many have been shot each end.
  • If an archer misses the target and is unable to locate their arrow they should bring it to the attention of other members present. Other archers at the field should assist with locating the arrow before leaving. The club has metal detectors available to aid searching. If you are unable to locate the arrow before sunset please notify the committee immediately and they will make arrangements.
  • The club does not allow the use of ‘all-‘ or ‘pure-carbon’ arrows outdoors. Arrows should be of wooden, aluminium, or aluminium-carbon-composite (A/C) composition to aid in their location.
  • Archers should avoid shooting at distances significantly beyond their capabilities. We advise new members participate in the 252 scheme to guide their progression.

The club adopts a no-blame culture with missing arrows and it is understood that everyone misses occasionally. However, the club reserves the right to issue warnings and, if necessary, terminate membership for those contravening the above regulations. Arrows will be checked as part of general equipment safety inspections throughout the year.

If you are planning on purchasing arrows and are unsure about their suitability please ask the committee for guidance.

A non-exhaustive list of suitable outdoor arrows includes those by Easton: A/C/C, A/C/G, A/C/E, Procomp, X10, X10 Protour, Jazz, Genesis, Neos, XX75 (Platinum Plus), X7 (Eclipse), RX7, X23 and by Cartel: Triple, X-pert.

Safeguarding

Our club applies the Archery GB Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults Policy. A copy of this policy and the appropriate guidelines is available on the link below and on request.
