Brixham Archers are an open club and welcome new members, young or older and of any ethnic origin. However, due to the nature of the sport, there are certain restrictions that the club may have to consider upon a request to become a member. These are:
- If archery could be detrimental to your physical well being
- If you are physically incapable of drawing up a bow
- If you are incapable of understanding and acting upon safety instructions
- If, at any time, you have been convicted of an offence regarding weapons of any kind.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF MEMBERSHIP
Being a member of Brixham Archers I agree to abide by:
Brixham Archers Constitution and rules laid down by the Committee
Archery GB Rules of Shooting
Archery GB Protection of Children & Vulnerable Adults Policy
Archery GB Equity & Action Plan
I understand that I must be a member of Archery GB and that I shall pay my subscriptions and shooting fees for the year up to 1st August 2019 in one payment in advance or by standing order by arrangement with the Club Treasurer.
I also agree to help wherever possible at club events, and for Brixham Archers to hold my details on a computer.
Brixham Archers have no paid coaches or members. ‘One to One’ coaching is available by prior arrangement.
If, due to a medical problem or learning difficulty, it becomes evident that any archer requires individual help or supervision at all times, then said archer will be responsible for providing a suitably experienced carer when attending the club.
The Club reserves the right to refuse membership to any person it feels would be unacceptable.
The committee reserve the right to terminate any individual’s membership if they do not abide by club rules, if their presence on the shooting line becomes detrimental to the morale of the club, and if information comes to light which casts doubt on the ability of the club to safeguard other member’s safety.
If your membership is terminated by the committee, you will receive a refund of any shooting fees paid in advance, however annual subscriptions are non-refundable.
Any complaint regarding the club or members of the club must be made in writing to the Club Secretary.
Whilst club equipment is available to use in the early stages of membership, members will be expected to acquire their own kit within a reasonable period of time – however, it is recommended that you take advice from club members before buying bows and arrows to make sure that you get the correct equipment for your individual requirements. While making use of club equipment you will have to attend the specified club sessions to ensure that a keyholder is available to issue equipment.
Most members find it beneficial to have their own shooting tab and quiver as soon as possible – advice on these items can be obtained from any experienced member.
