E-mail Print PDF

Coaching and teaching junior archers (under 16’s)

A parent or legal guardian may teach or coach their own child on their own.
At all times when juniors are shooting, there must be an adult present. The adult must be an NFAS member.
Parents and legal guardians of juniors must be made aware that minor physical contact may be necessary as part of coaching.
Avoid celebratory hugs with children when they do well.

Tournament Guide

As tournament and event organisers, Long Eaton Field Archers do not accept responsibility for the care of children.
If a parent or guardian books in their child for a LEFA event, they are responsible for their child whether they are shooting together or not.
All LEFA juniors, booked into other events should shoot with another LEFA member or family member.
All persons under the age of 12 will have a parent or nominated guardian with them at all times.

Any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding children or young club members and their treatment contact the Child Protection Officer. - Claire Weddle via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

What is Field Archery?

altField archery involves shooting at targets over varying unmarked distances, often in woodland and rough terrain (rarely in a field). The archers follow a course, shooting at typically 28 to 36 targets in sequence, each from one or more positions depending on the rules in operation. The courselayer will try to fool the archer into mis-judging the distance by subtle use of dead ground or by using natural obstacles!

A variety of bow styles may be used (more information here).
We shoot at life-size 3D animal targets or paper pictures of animals or birds.

Field archery provides exercise, builds stamina and requires self-control. But above all it's fun for all the family!

A Short History of Long Eaton Field Archers

22 Sep 1994
The club was founded by Pete and Cherrie Peabody, John and Angela Hammond, Claire Hammond and Adrian Hayhoe at the inaugural meeting in Long Eaton, Derbyshire. The agreed fee for joining the club was £1 per person.

06 Oct 1994
By now the committee had found a hall to shoot in, approached the local authority for a grant and opened a club bank account.  A dining hall at Wilsthorpe School, Long Eaton was booked for shooting practice. Club Secretary Doug Hart recalls: “I well remember shooting in the school. The bosses were very basic, no back nets and at times shooting over desks. It was a start and it was fun. However, one or two of the archers did miss once or twice but the holes  were filled in with chewing gum.
