Membership Costs

An explanation of the costs: If you join NAC (or other clubs) you will need to pay affiliation fees, membership fees and shooting fees :
Affiliation fees to ArcheryGB, the regional archery association (EMAS) and the county archery association (NCAS). We have no control over these fees which are a requirement to cover national and county benefits, magazine and insurance. The relevant prices for these affiliation fees are shown above.
NAC Membership Fee. The costs quoted are effective for those joining from 1st October 2020 and cover until 30th September 2021.
The various permutations on NAC membership need some explanation:
What is BBOB? BBOB is the Boys Brigade Old Boys Rugby Club at St. Andrews Road, Northampton. This is an almost 24/7 outdoor shooting site our club has access to. To use this site you need to pay an additional £15 (to cover maintenance and ground rent) plus £10 to join BBOB Rugby Club. There are then no shooting fees to cover use at BBOB. OR you could just be a PAYG member and just pay to shoot each time at BBOB at £3 per session.
What is Disabled membership? If you are disabled you can claim a reduced membership fee. Disability is described as: “an impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ negative effect on your ability to carry out normal archery activities“. We do not ask for evidence of this and rely on the honesty of applicants.
Shooting fees for each session you shoot. At present these are £3 for adults and £2 for juniors. The pre-pay option covers all these fees.
