Hampshire Archery Association is the home of archery in Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands in the UK. The Association is affiliated to SCAS (Southern Counties Archery Society) and GNAS (Grand National Archery Society) who are the governing body for the sport in the UK.
Archery is a sport for all ages and abilities and is great for families. There are over 50 archery clubs in Hampshire and most offer beginners courses. If you interested in trying archery get in touch with one of the clubs listed here.
I’m pleased to confirm that HAA Coaching will be offering a series of Open Coaching Clinics through the summer. These will be available to ALL Hamshire archers from Novices to County Team Members both Senior and Junior and sessions will be staffed by coaches of all Levels. So whatever you would like to get out of a visit to one of these we aim to have the expertise available to help you.
Each session will run from 5pm (probably more useful for Juniors) and continue until around 8pm, depending on light conditions. There will be a charge of £5, part of which will reimburse the clubs who have kindly offered their facilities for the use of their range and targets and part will pay travel expenses to the coaches attending.
Please help our planning by emailing your intention to attend a session to The Coaching Organiser, if possible a week before each event.
Our appeal for clubs to provide facilities for these Clinics had an excellent response. So good in fact that we have not been able to take up all of the offers so I hope other venues will be visited next year. The intention is to have a wide geographical spread to make attending easier but you will be welcome to visit as many as you wish. Confirmed forthcoming dates are:
Most of the club websites give further information, if needed, on finding the ranges but let me know if you still have difficulty.

This is advance notice of the intention to run a further Level 1 Coach course later this year.
Although dates have yet to be agreed it is intended that there will be a training day in each month of October, November and December with the assessment taking place in Janusry 2016.
The general location will be Swaythling, Southampton.
There is a Level 1 Course already due to be run in the county starting late March but this filled up very quickly so those wanting to join the autumn course should register their interest as soon as possible by contacting the HAA Coaching Organiser
National county team tournament
Held at lilleshall
I will be asking HAA to pay entry fees as per previous years, but that will need to be approved first. As we stand cost is £93 per team of 3.
I will propose 4 teams, ladies and gents recurve and compound. We are currently unsure if there will be barebow or longbow, but if we have teams willing to shoot I will ask for more entries! As a statement of fact, Hampshire were the only county willing to submit a barebow team last year, hence why the catagory was not hosted.
Please let me know if you are interested in being in a team, I would like 3 720 and 3 wa1440 scores for consideration as well please

Helen Press has agreed that the 2015 HAA v DWAA team shoot will be hosted on the sunday at the 2015 Andoba Fita weekend.
