Beginners Course – June 2024

We have a beginners course over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd June 2024.

This will be a 9 hours split over the Saturday and Sunday mornings 9:30am – 2pm. A maximum of 12 beginners will be accommodated.

This will be held indoors at the Shotton Scout hut to ensure the weather doesn’t soak us.

All equipment will be provided and tea/coffee making facilities are available.

Please register for the course here.

On the 24th, the football groups at Care and Repair NEW sports field will be holding a community taster session and we have joined in to provide an archery taster session.

Some times, you might discover you have a natural talent..

The session will be from 1pm to 4pm, and participants will get 3×4 arrows under the instruction of an experienced archer. If there are no queues then additional sets will be available at £5 for 12 arrows (subject to change).

Due to equipment restrictions we cannot accommodate juniors under the age of 10 years old.

Archery Technique Drills Videos

Through ArcheryGB you can get all the information you need to become a great archer. The foundation of a good form is very simple: good bone on bone alignment. The technique has evolved and refined over the years and teaching is simpler and more effective.

Drills and skills are the very essential framework that any (qualified) coach can teach you through. If you want to improve your technique, no matter what style you might be shooting, these are the real foundation of good form.

What do I need to bring?

Question: I want to go on a beginners course, but I do not have any equipment!

Answer: That fine, we provide all the equipment to enable you to shoot safely during the beginners course.

Whilst on the course we will advise you on the best equipment to suit your pocket and style and when to buy.

Please do not purchase any equipment upfront as it may be unsuitable.

On the day of the course please bring a light rainproof jacket and wear a close fitting top, as the bowstring can catch on baggy tops. Also open-toed sandals are not permitted on any archery field.

If you have long hair, it is advisable to secure it, so that it doesn’t catch on the bowstring.

To take the beginners course you only need to pay once for the entire course, which covers the provision of the venue, coaches and hire of the equipment for the entire course.
