Field Captains Role
To see a list of field captains click here.
As you know, we have to pay full attention to the safety requirements of the sport and one way of doing this is by having a clearly nominated Field Captain for every club meeting. Current Field Captains are shown in the Members list on the website.
Field Captains take overall responsibility for the safe conduct of archery whether at a Club Night (ie relaxed practice) or at a Club Target Day (scoring rounds). They have a knowledge of the Rules of Shooting, the Club Constitution and this Handbook, and are appointed by the committee following a training session. A list of designated Field Captains, and their contact details, is made available to all club members and is maintained in the pavilion and on the website. If you are interested in being a field captain, please get in touch with one of the committee.
The degree to which some of these requirements will be implemented will relate to the nature of the shoot. The ARCHERY GB Rules of Shooting (section 305) state that ‘at all times, whenever shooting takes place, it must be under the control of a Field Captain. At larger meetings (competitions), the Field Captain shall be a Judge recognised by the ARCHERY GB judging organisation.’
