How to Start Your Own Archery Club Archery is a great skill and sport. It can be immensely beneficial as it improves focus, hand - eye coordination, and maturity. If you are interested in Archery, and would like some people to practice and compete with, starting an archery club or team, could be a great experience for you and your friends, as well as the friends you will meet doing archery. <Steps 1Get a place for your club members to meet at and train, like on a field or something like that. You can also do it at local schools, all you need to do there is ask the headmaster or principal. They may be hard to convince to allow you to shoot bows on campus, because most schools are "weapon free zones" but if you show the principal that you are using practice tips, and perhaps put up a hay bail or some kind of large backstop behind your targets, they shouldn't mind too much. If they say no, find somewhere else, like the park.< 2Get equipment such as, arrows, bows, targets and guards. These can be very expensive. On your first meeting, have your Bow, arrows, a target, and a guard with you, and after showing everyone how to use it, take turns on your bow. Be careful as somebody could break your equipment, but this allows people to know if archery is for them, and if they like it, try to see if you can get some people to get their own equipment to bring. 3Get some members into your club, by asking some of your mates or making up some posters. If you are in school, and would like your club to be a school club, ask them to make an announcement on the school announcements or morning news, often times, they'll do it even if you're meeting somewhere else. 4Don't charge people to join. You're lucky they're coming at all, bows and arrows can be rather expensive, especially for a kid, so don't charge them to be a part of the team too. 5Make sure everyone follows proper safety procedures, and that you are always shooting towards a target, and know what is behind that target as well as in front of it. Probably best for you to have taken a class on bow safety before attempting starting a club. It's recommended to join the Boy Scouts of America. Not only just to learn archery, but to actually join, it's a great experience and helps you become a mature and healthy adult.< Tips Only practice where you have been given permission to do so. Never practice where you've been told not to. Learn to aim the bow well so you don't hit anything behind the target. Don't flinch when you shoot, the bow won't hurt you, you're on the safe side. <Warnings Follow all safety procedures. Don't goof around, set an example for others and always conduct yourself in a good nature, but serious manner.
