This Beginners Course is for all new archers (Minimum 8 years old) who have completed a Come and Try Archey course at Illawarra Archers in the last 3 months. It is designed to provide a pathway for those wanting to go to the next level in archery and /or join an Archery Australia club, with the Club providing equipment and Qualified Archery Australia Instructors. Successful completion of an amount of pre-course reading using materials we provide electronically (this is not hard study, but will help to prepare you for the first class of the course). A level of concentration is required when undertaking archery, for safety reasons.

During the Course you will learn more about safety and range etiquette, warming up, types of archery and equipment, some history, and of course how to shoot using a recurve bow. Upon successful completion of a Beginner Course, the new archers will have learned the basics of recurve archery, use of a sight, scoring, and should achieve the skill to shoot up to 20m. A Certificate will be issued at the end. There will also be measuring up, equipment information and advice provided for those who will be going further and purchasing their own bow setup. The sport of archery is fun and can be challenging. As well as becoming involved as a Club member - archery can be enjoyed as an individual sport or as a team sport.
