English Field Archery Association Development Plan
September 2021 – 2026
The following Development plan sets out a rough roadmap for the development of the English Field Archery Association over the next 5 years. We would like to engage members in the development of the association, therefore if you have any skills or expertise that would help the EFAA to develop further, please get in touch with the committee :
Objective 1 – Adult Participation
Continue to rebuild and increase affiliations post COVID. To increase membership, engage with University Archery clubs to encourage new members and plan to increase female participation across the society.
Objective 2 – Junior Participation
Continue to renew and update the child protection policy ensuring all clubs have a written safeguarding policy. To increase junior participation, engage and support school / college archery to target and support junior membership.

Organise further development days to provide coaching and seminars for archers. Identify future needs for international squads and continue to support squads during tournaments.
