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.

Coaching and Development
As you may be aware, I have taken over the role of Coaching & Development for the County from
There are several events I am in the process of planning to improve the quality of coaching within
the County. For this to work I need to be able to communicate with coaches within your clubs. A few
coaches have already contacted me with their email addresses, I kindly request you can chase the
coaches within your clubs who haven’t yet sent me an email with their contact details to do so. My
email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I have planned a coach development workshop to run in
April which I would like to make coaches aware of.
At the last committee meeting we discussed the possibility of setting up a ‘coaching circuit’. The idea
behind this being several volunteer coaches will visit clubs around the County to observe and assist
club archers where possible. The benefit of this for clubs is so as they can be made aware of the
coaches available to them in the county and for coaches to observe archers outside of their own
Initially we have decided to trial this at three clubs within the County. If you feel this will benefit
your club and would like to take part then please can you send me an email expressing your interest
before the next committee meeting.
University alumni are no longer able to affiliate with AGB through their university even though they may still be members of the university club. They therefore have to affiliate either directly (which can be problematical) or through another club. With the agreement of this club they can still shoot for the university in local competitions but at county, regional and national level they must shoot for the club through which they are affiliated. This explains why you may have seen university alumni shooting for two different clubs at competitions in the county.
