At Loughborough Students' Archery Club we have multiple training sessions each week and shoot in both inter-university competitions as well as competitions within the Leicestershire and Rutland County. The skill level of our members ranges from complete beginner all the way up to national squad level, so no matter what, you'll fit in. We have three membership types, designed to suit what you want to get out of the club.

The membership types are Beginner, Experienced and Alumni.
- Beginner Membership
The Beginner Membership is designed for students who have never done archery before and therefore have never held membership with an archery governing body e.g. (AGB, EAF, EFAA, IFAA). The beginner’s course teaches basic archery techniques and safety whilst shooting.
As those who purchase this membership have not previously held membership with an archery governing body they must attend at least 4 out of the 6 beginner’s course sessions. If this attendance requirement is not met you will not be allowed to continue training with the club and a refund will not be given.
