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

Junior County Squad 2020/21

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 national GB Archery coaches 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.

Team selection is based on actual scores on full day rounds where the archers have shot their furthest distances. The top 3 Compounds, top 2 Barebows, top 2 Longbows and top 8 Recurves then get selected. The Junior Team coaches are always monitoring the performance of Gloucestershire's junior archers. Those who are consistent and perform well at competitions could be invited to join the county team.

As well as our county team archers, we also host a Development Squad. This group is dedicated to young archers who have the potential to shoot for the county in future, but just need a bit more time and further coaching, training and guidance.

An invitation has been extended to Development Squad members based on their tournament scores and/or upon the recommendation of their home club.
