We teach in small groups, with a low student to instructor ratio, to give you the best experience we can.
You will be supervised at all times under the control of an Instructor and Range Officer.
You will be taught the "Ten Steps of Archery" and be coached in these steps in detail.
Week 1 After a brief safety recap you will work on refining the shooting technique you were introduced to in Come and Try.
Week 2 Will see the introduction of Sighted Recurve bows. You will taught to setup and adjust the bow correctly.
Week 3 The focus will be teaching scoring and competition etiquette. This gives you the necessary skills to shoot in club events and eventually compete in tournaments.
