Beginners archery courses are an essential part of the annual programme at Aire Valley Archers, as it allows people who are interested in the sport to learn the basics, safety and rules of archery. It also gives people a chance to try out the sport and decide whether or not they are interested in joining a club.

Our courses last at total of 12 hours (normally 4 x 3 hour sessions), giving participants the opportunity to gain ‘hands-on’ archery experience, and are led by qualified coaches. No previous experience of the sport is necessary,

And we supply all equipment for the course free of charge.

Everything you need to get started in archery

The course covers everything you’ll need to know to get started in the sport. At the end of the course, you’ll:

  • Understand the basic skills and techniques needed to shoot a recurve bow.
  • Be confident and knowledgeable in safety and archery etiquette at club level
  • Be presented with a ‘certificate of attendance’ as proof that you have completed the course and are safe to shoot at the club.

We strongly recommend that parents also take up the sport, as we find that, when a parent is shooting, young people tend to keep up their interest in the sport. Please bear in mind that, even if you decide not to take up the sport, you will need to be present to supervise your young person  throughout the beginner’s course and whenever they are at the club. This is to satisfy our child protection and vulnerable adults policy.

The beginners course costs £80 per Adult (>18 years) and £40 per Junior (8-18 years). We will contact you when your allocated a beginners course start date and you will be invoiced four weeks prior to the course starting, this is not refundable . Your place on the course is only finalised when we have received your payment.
