See what you can get involved in as part of Cumbria County Archery Association

As a member of Eagle Bowmen you are also a member of Cumbria County Archery Association. Throughout the year there are County events which you can all shoot at. There is always opportunity to help out at these events if you are not shooting  – competitions are not everyone’s cup of tea after all.

There are also Inter-County Events where you could be fortunate enough to be picked for the County Team to take part in.

Throughout the year the County runs Squad days. These are open to anyone who aspires to shoot for the County. Speak to Chris at club if you would like to attend. The Squad Days give an opportunity for further training and advice from a range of sources, a chance to meet others from all the county clubs who you may end up shooting with if you are picked for the team and a chance for further practice for the Inter County Shoots.

Squad Days are free to attend and are usually held at Eamont Bridge Village Hall in winter and Hunter Hall playing field in Summer, from 10am-4pm.
