Gloucestershire Archery Society was formed to support all archery clubs in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, and Bristol.

Junior County Squad 2019/20

The Gloucestershire County Junior Archery Team brings together the talents of some of the county’s most knowledgeable and dedicated coaches to inspire and support our junior archers, helping them to compete at their best.

The team hosts several practice sessions a year and competes at two events: a junior county team friendly against Worcestershire County in May and the GWAS Inter-County Junior Championship in September.

Our County Team is very proud to have a national GB Archery coach among us. Some of our young archers have also earned places on the national junior squad, enjoying success as they compete across the country and Europe.
