Starting a new club?

Here is a brief outline of things you need to consider:

You will need an executive board (the decision makers). It may be as few as one or two members running the show but as you grow larger you may need to share the workload. Your executive may look something like this:

President – Vice President – Secretary – Treasurer – Membership Coordinator

Other necessary roles include having a trained safety officer and a trained judge for conducting practices and holding shoots (if your club chooses to do so).  If you have a junior program you need to consider coaches – NCCP coaches clinics are available to members interested in becoming coaches.

 Archery Alberta requires affiliated clubs to have all members of their club to hold Archery Alberta/Archery Canada membership for the insurance policy to be in effect. There can be no split with some members holding Archery Alberta membership and other members holding membership to another association  or members holding neither,  just club members.  Each club must have a primary membership and if a club chooses to affiliate with Archery Alberta the described guidelines must be adhered to. This does not preclude clubs from offering additional memberships to other associations however; each member of your club must hold Archery Alberta membership in order for the club to have complete insurance coverage under the Archery Canada insurance policy.  For clubs who have members who wish to have Archery Alberta / Archery Canada Membership they may join Archery Alberta at the non-affiliated member rates.

Once your club is ready to affiliate, you will contact the membership coordinator of Archery Alberta. You will be sent excel worksheets by Archery Alberta that you will use to record your clubs information and membership information.
