Would you like your kids to experience archery? 

Mount Petrie Bowmen is offering an inexpensive opportunity for school age kids from age 10 and upward during the school holidays. For $30.00 participants will learn basic archery technique using recurve bows.  Safety is a high priority for us, so time will be spent at the start of the activity to make sure everyone is kept safe.

The activity is led by qualified coaches and instructors approved by South Queensland Archery Society (SQAS), lasts for two hours, and the fee covers all equipment, coaching, insurance and venue hire .

The archery is conducted in our 30m x 30m indoor facility so the activity runs in all weather conditions.

On arrival you will be fitted out with archery equipment according to your physical attributes, so please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.

A word on archery for kids, especially little kids.

A good archery experience has at least two elements that some little kids find difficult. There is the physical element where the bow has to be pulled back a lot of times and this can be quite physically demanding. Then there is the mental bit where learners need to be aware of their body and to understand what has to be done with their body and to be able to do it consistently.

Generally we find that the age of 10 is the earliest that children can deal with those two parts of learning archery.

PLEASE NOTE: Parents/guardians of children under the age of 18 years are required to stay for the duration of the activity, as they remain primarily responsible for the behaviour and welfare of their children.

So if you are already there, parents/guardians might want to consider registering for the activity as well.  Adults not accompanying a school age child will not be able to participate.

 What to bring:

- Be comfortably dressed with no loose or hanging clothing.

- Long hair should be tied back so it doesn’t get in the way of the bowstring.

- Long dangling earrings and jewellery are best avoided.

- Wear enclosed flat footwear. You will not be permitted to shoot while wearing thongs or open sandals.

- We have a small canteen where you can purchase drinks, chips, chocolates and ice creams etc. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks.

 Note: Minimum age is 10 years old.
