Membership FAQs

I'm already a member of another club. Can I still shoot at CMO?

 

Certainly. We offer Associate Memberships which allow either full or limited access to the facilities and benefits of CMO.

 

Note that with an Associate membership, CMO will be your secondary club until your membership with Archery GB runs out. The club that you paid your AGB fees through is known as your 'first claim club'. This means that you can only shoot for CMO in club or inter-club tournaments with the consent of your first claim club, but not at County, Regional or National events.  At these, you must shoot for your first claim club or as a direct AGB member.

Do you have any plans for archers who would just like to shoot with you during the summer?

 

Yes. If you are already affiliated to another club or directly to Archery GB and can only shoot during July, August and September, we have a special Summer Associate plan allowing you to shoot during those months. 

What's included in a CMO Full Membership package?

 

As a full member of CMO Bowmen your fees to Surrey County and Archery GB are covered which includes your public liability insurance allowing you to shoot at other grounds. You'll be able to shoot at all CMO outdoor sessions all year round including friendlies at other clubs and get priority booking for indoor sessions during the winter season. You'll also receive our quarterly newsletter, be invited to fun shoots, be eligible to vote at the AGM, attend the annual awards dinner, have your submitted scores kept in our records, have access to level 1 and 2 coaches and get full access to our website and the Community sections. 

Are there discounts for families?

 

Yes. Juniors under 18 who are related to a senior full member qualify for a family discount. 

Do I need to have archery experience to join CMO?

 

You will need to have had at least 12 hours of accredited archery training before joining CMO Bowmen. One of our Beginner's Courses is an example of this - see the Training section for details. 

How do I join online?

 

Click on the Membership Plans menu and choose the membership plan to suit you. Choose 'New Membership when prompted, fill out the form and pay online using PayPal. You'll also be registered to use the website and able to use the member's only Community section. 

Why do 18-24 year olds pay less than other senior archers?

 

From 2016, Archery GB have extended their Junior fees to include archers up to 25 years of age. This is designed to encourage younger archers to continue in the sport once they leave school.

The Junior fee has increased since last year. Why is this?

 

Archery GB have introduced a new individual fee for juniors and disabled archers instead of the block fees that the club used to pay on their behalf. Although the fees for juniors to AGB have increased, a young person won't have to pay senior rates until they are 25 years old representing significant savings.

What is a 'First Claim Club' and how does it affect my Associate membership?

 

Under the current Memorandum, Articles and Laws of GNAS version C-01-03, any club through which you have affiliated to Archery GB is known as your First Claim Club. This means that if you shoot at a County, Regional or National tournament, you must represent your First Claim Club and not any secondary clubs that you have joined as an associate member. Inter-club tournaments or friendlies are different, and you can represent a secondary club if you wish, but only with the consent of your first claim club.

 

This will remain so for the duration of your current Archery GB membership which usually finishes at the end of September each year. After this, you can elect a different club to affiliate through as your First Claim Club.
