Under 18s

Wallingford Castle Archers aim to make archery as accessible as possible for young people. However, we also have to ensure that we follow safeguarding guidance and help to keep every child safe.

Those children of primary school age (up to 11) are classified as "minis", with older children under the age of 18 classified as "juniors".

Minis members may only attend minis sessions. Parents do not need to stay for minis sessions. However, those in year 5 or 6 who have attained their white arrow award may be invited to attend other sessions. For the junior session, parents may leave the child with us. For other sessions, they must stay.

Junior members may attend open sessions with parental supervision. When they have achieved their blue arrow award and have their own equipment, they may shoot without supervision at most sessions, subject to availability and communication with coaches.
