Target sports are great at engaging young people, as athletic or physical ability become less important, as patience, aim and determination are the key s kills. As a Group we encourage the young people to participate in these target activities, with them forming a part of each terms programme.
For the Beavers we have Soft Archery sets, these are used either inside the Scout HQ, or during the
summer in the outside space at the Scout HQ.
For Cubs we also run Archery with Recurve bows, we also offer Air rifle shooting at the Scout HQ, over a 6 yard temporary range.
For Scouts and Explorers, we offer Archery and also Air rifle and Pistol shooting. We are proud that a number of our Scouts and Explorers have represented the Group for Devon County Scouts, shooting in the South West Finals and also at the National Shooting Centre, Aldersley.
