Beginners & Courses
Ever wondered where to start?
Hopefully this page will provide you with sufficient insight and information to make contact with us and come along to see if Archery is for you.
Most 'newcomers' come to archery having tried it at an activity centre, the scouts or at a simple 'Have a Go' session. If you are new to the sport then you are going to need a beginners course. This course gives you the safety aspects of shooting, some rules to shoot by and an understanding of basic technique to start you on your way.
We try to run beginners course throughout the year (wintertime indoors, and summer time outdoors on a Monday) Courses are always very popular and it is not unusual for places to be booked severel months ahead of the course date.
If you are interested in a course, then please use the 'contact Us' button on the front page for more information.
COURSE DATES FOR 2015
We are looking to run a beginners course, indoors at Higham Lane School, on the 9th, 16th 23rd and 30th November. (Monday evenings) The course will have just 6 students with 2 instructors and will run from 7pm till 8.30pm. You are expected to attend a minimum of 3 of the sessions in order to be signed off at the end of the course.
This is likely to be our last course for 2015 with the next one planned for around February 2016.
The course will cost £60 per student.
If interested in a place on the course please use the 'contact us' button and details will be sent directly to you. Places are generally filled quite quickly and so early booking is advised.
Course numbers are restricted to ensure a very good instructor/student ratio. All equipment can be borrowed from the club for the duration of the course so there is no need to buy anything before committing yourself to the sport. In fact, we would recommend that you don't buy anything until after the course. The equipment required is very specific to you and your needs and it's not a case of 'one size fits all' You could therefore find that buying equipment too early could prove to be a mistake.
