Formed in 1981 by our President & current Chairman, Philip van Buren, as a democratic, self-governing, constitutional coaching organisation within the Southern Counties Regional Society (SCAS) representing Sussex County Archery Association (SCAA).

Our mission then, as is now; “To provide top class coach training for all grades of coaches, in order to provide the archers of Sussex with premier quality coaching no matter what their level is”.

We also offer support to our coaches by means of CPD workshops, seminars and talks to improve coaching standards, besides providing the SCAA with Squad & Team coaching and performance workshops when required.
