Cheshire Archery Association (CAA) was formed in 1954, when the then Cheshire and Lancashire Archery Association decided to form their own separate organisations. The first Annual General Meeting was held at 'The Saracen's Head' at Warburton, near Lymm.
Today the CAA covers the current county of Cheshire, plus the Wirral peninsula and part of south and east Manchester . The CAA is the governing body for the sport of archery within this area and is affiliated to the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS) and to the Northern Counties Archery Society (NCAS) and has some 25 Clubs affiliated to it - (Click on the Find a Club button, to left, for the current list of affiliated clubs).
The object of the
Association is to promote and encourage the sport of archery and to provide
support and services, to clubs and individuals who wish to practice Archery in
all the established forms in this area.
The Association is managed by a committee, including representatives of all the
archery clubs affiliated to the Association and to the GNAS.
The CAA stages the
very popular Cheshire Weekend, usually in the first weekend in August, which
includes the Cheshire FITA Star and the Cheshire County Target Archery
Championships & Open Tournament. It also stages the Field and Clout County
Championships, these are normally in October and September. During
February/March of the each year the County’s Indoor Championships is staged as
part of the Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The Association also selects teams to represent the County in various
inter-county events including regional championships. It presents appropriate
County bars to all archers selected to represent the County each year at the
The County Records
Officer maintains and publishes records of the highest scores shot by county
archers in each branch of archery as defined by the GNAS rules of shooting and
issues certificates to affiliated archers in confirmation of those records.
County Coaching Organiser (CCO), is responsible for all Coaching matters within
the County and is there to provide support and assistance to the clubs and
individuals affiliated to the Association in the form of Coach/Instructor
training and education, Coaching Clinics, County Squad training, Seminars, talks
and individual Coaching.
During 2004/2005 Winter months the Association is attempting to revive the Cheshire Leagues. 2004 being the Golden Jubilee Year for the Association it was thought their revival will be very appropriate. The Leagues are open to Compound, Longbow and Recurve teams affiliated to the CAA.
In addition there are Annual Awards, normally presented at the CAA AGM which is open to all CAA affiliated archers . These being the Compleat Archer and the Mike Denham Trophy.Please have a look over our website for more detailed information on the above by clicking on the Menu buttons to the left.
