Safeguarding

Don’t let anyone spoil your fun.

Archery is fun – it gives you the chance to make new friends, try out new activities and amaze yourself with what you can do!

When other people ruin your fun, know that you can speak out 🗣️. We want you to feel safe, happy 😃 and welcome in our sport. 

That means taking special care to make sure no one feels bullied, left out, or treated in a way that makes them uncomfortable.

We work hard to create a safe and positive place for everyone involved in archery.

We follow the rules of a big group called Archery GB who help make sure that clubs like ours known the best ways to look after everyone, especially our young and vulnerable members.

Archery GB had help to write the rules from a team called the Child Protection Sports Unit at the NSPCC, who are a charity that help to keep children safe.

So, take a moment to learn about how we keep everyone safe here. And always know you can talk to someone if you have questions or worries.

Happy shooting! 🏹

🆘 How to ask for help

If something is worrying you or you are upset or hurt by the way someone treats you don’t keep it to yourself.

Tell an adult you trust as soon as possible.

At our Club you can speak to Caroline Bennett who is there to listen. Where there is a problem at the club she can help put things right. You can email Caroline at or you can click here to write a message to her.

There are also lots of people you can talk to about any problems you have:

A parent, guardian or another adult in your family who you trust

A friend’s parent, carer or neighbour

A coach at the archery club
