In Archery, a Junior is anyone under the age of eighteen; once this age is reached, the archer becomes a Senior. We have our own junior club, Burton Joyce Juniors, which has a thriving membership and approved CRB coach.
Because Archery can put stress and strain on growing limbs, we only accept juniors from the age of eight onwards as we feel that before this age, archery may put undue stress on youngsters.
We do accept Juniors on to our Beginners course and into the club. If Juniors attend a Beginners course we encourage the parent or guardian to attend also, however, if this is not possible, we expect the parent or guardian to remain with their child(ren) for the duration of the course.
