Whilst being able to show that we are an Ontarget Performance, in reality the measure of that accolade is real results, well as evidenced below, we get the results. Add to that the value added to those that just want to enjoy the sport and the framework we uses does work!
We are creating a gallery of all our British Champions, those that have broken British Records, those that have represented their country or gained significant recognition and notable awards the club has received.
Our achievements as a ClubMark Club & being the first club to achieve the Ontarget Specialisms of Community, Performance & Young People are cornerstones that have helped us achieve all of the following.
Honorary Life Membership of Deer Park Archers
We have agreed a set of criteria and an Awards Panel that will review annually members who meet those criteria. The bar is set high and include the requirement to have won either Olympic/Paralympic Gold or World Championship Titles and produced a sustained level of performance as well as meeting other criteria including contributing to the club’s activities. In line with the club ethos there is also a set of criteria for non shooting members.
