This section is designed to assist clubs with information and resources necessary to fulfill the requirements of BC Archery programs.
To become a member-club of BC Archery (and Archery Canada), please follow instructions found on the Join the BCAA page.
In order to satisfy membership criteria, a club must have a minimum of two (2) certified Safety Officers and/or Judges who are active members of BC Archery. Information on how to become a Safety Officer or Judge can be found on the Judging page.
For clubs hosting the BCAA JOP program, it is necessary to have at least one (1) certified coach at the minimum level of Instruction of Beginner Archers to oversee the program. Those coaches who have not yet converted to the new NCCP certification are required to take Making Ethical Decisions in order to transfer your certification. More information is available on the Coaching page. The coach must also be an active member of BC Archery in order for their certification to be recognized.
Failure to meet these criteria will delay the processing of your membership application.
