Beginners Course

Our beginners’ course is a chance for anyone new to the sport to join and learn the basics. Our course focuses on safety and technique, teaching new archers to shoot comfortably and with range safety in mind.

The information on this page was written for 2021. It is unlikely anything will change for 2022, but we will confirm this closer to October.

The course is a six-week course, with 75-minute sessions once a week for each of the six weeks. Sessions start off with the basics and progress to improving technique and setting up your own equipment. There are always experienced archers and coaches on hand to help with any questions or concerns. In order to be signed off as having completed the course, archers MUST attend a minimum of five out of six sessions.

Courses run from the start of October of each year, in line with the beginning of the academic year.
This year we will run 8 slots a week (beginners will select one session to attend at the same time for each of the 6 weeks of the course):

  • Fridays 5:15pm – 6:30pm
  • Fridays 6:35pm – 7:50pm
