The course will consist of 4 sessions of 1½ hours each on consecutive Sunday afternoons run by Archery GB qualified coaches who will instruct you as you progress, covering range safety rules, warm up exercises, bare bow & sighted shooting, etiquette, scoring & an explanation of equipment.

The club is affiliated to the Glamorgan Archery Association, the Welsh Archery Association & Archery GB the national governing body for target archery in the UK. As a member of Archery GB you will be able to shoot at any other Archery GB affiliated club, this is useful when on holiday or if you go off to university.

These courses will be held outside on our field range at St. Richard Gwyn High School & on completion you should have a good appreciation of archery safety and basic awareness of good shooting posture. After the course you have two options, either stop shooting or we hope that you will register as a club member and continue to shoot independently.

All equipment will be provided by the club during your lessons & possibly for a few weeks after completion when you will need to consider purchasing your own.

We can advise on equipment & specialist archery shops where you will get expert advice on your purchase but please do not be tempted to purchase on-line or from eBay before your course is completed, you could end up with a very expensive mistake!
