About the Course

The Archery Certificate Course is for those wanting to become archers, have the desire to learn good technique, and to shoot safely and well. The course is conducted in our 30m x 30m indoor facility so it runs in all weather conditions. If the weather is kind, we will go outside for a short time.

On arrival you will be fitted out with equipment according to your physical attributes, so we need you there at 8:00am so we can start on time. The day will comprise a number of short lessons explaining equipment, techniques and safety. These will be followed by supervised practice.

The course fee covers equipment hire, access to the venue, insurance and sufficient coaches to keep participants safe and the course moving along.

If you already own your own archery equipment you will not be able to use it on the course.

On successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate that will be recognised by other Archery Australia affiliated clubs, at their discretion. Sometimes we are unable to issue a certificate, often for young children, if the participant hasn't been able to demonstrate an ability to consistently reach the target at 18m in a safe manner.

A Word About 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 many times, and this can be quite physically demanding. Then there is the mental bit where there is a demand for the learner 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 age 11 is the earliest at which children can deal with these two parts of learning archery.

For this reason we strongly recommend against booking children under the age of 11 into this course.

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