How to Join

When we have membership places available they can be purchased from the Archery page on the Loughborough Sport website. To join you will need to log in with your university credentials, and add club membership to your basket. When you reach the checkout you will also need to purchase membership to the Athletic Union (if you do not already have it).

Membership Levels

The membership types are Beginner, Experienced and Alumni. If you have any questions about which membership is correct for you, please contact the committee before purchasing at lsu-archerycommittee@lists.lboro.ac.uk.

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.

This year's beginner’s course will be on the following dates:
