NFAS – The National Governing Body

The National Field Archery Society (NFAS) is the largest governing body for field archers in the UK and there are over one hundred clubs around the country affiliated to this society.

 

 

The NFAS through its members devises the rules, which govern the sport to promote the safety aspects of  field archery and to ensure competition is fair for every type of bow, class and age group. Third party insurance is provided through the society and is financed by part of the membership fee.

 

The NFAS publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, which provides a discussion forum for the members as well as disseminating club news. Clubs also list their open shoots in this newsletter, together with names and telephone numbers for club contacts, usually the secretary. This publication is essential reading for any archer wishing to attend competitive shoots or for archers looking for a club to join.

 

For the more experienced archers the NFAS supports each year a number of both National and Regional Championships. These are two day events, held in a different part of the country each year and these competitions attract several hundred competing archers. These are social events as much as sporting events and allow competitors to meet up with old friends and meet new ones from other clubs.

The shooting of live animals with a bow and arrow is strictly forbidden by the NFAS and is an offence under the law of the United Kingdom.
