The Leicestershire and Rutland County Archery Association (L&RCAA) was formed in May 1950 and is run by volunteers from different archery clubs within the county. The County committee meets once a month (except December) at the Kirby Muxloe Sports Club.
If you are a club within Leicestershire and Rutland, you are entitled to appoint a representative to come along to the meetings and report back to your club.
We extend a very warm welcome to any archer within the county and we are anxious to dispel any fears you may have about coming to the meetings. It is a good opportunity to meet socially with your fellow archers and to hear how county business is conducted.
Novice Shoot Cancelled
Unfortunately the Novice Indoor Shoot which was scheduled for January 2018 has been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Coaches for the Junior Development Squad
I am writing to you as county Junior Rep and the new lead coach for our county junior development squad.
As you may be aware the development squad is funded by the county to help develop junior archers to be ready to shoot for our county team, and is supported by volunteer coaches from around the county.
I would like to ask if there are any coaches who would like to consider joining our volunteer coaching team to support the junior development squad. We have a number of coaches from around the county but we do have a number of clubs that are not represented on our coaching team.
It would be great to speak to any of you who would like to consider offering help. We can also arrange for you to attend a session to explore the opportunity and see if you think joining our coaching team would be for you.
We have coaches of all levels from level one coaches shadowing experienced coaches upto more senior county coach level. This is an opportunity to develop your coaching skills outside of the club while enhancing your coaching portfolio and CPD.
The sessions are on a Sunday once a month during the indoor season, as well as a couple of top up summer dates.
So if you want to know more please drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I would be happy to talk to about it.
