About the Course

The Come and Try course is designed to allow you to gain basic archery skills and to experience the excitement of hitting the target in the middle. 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 archery equipment according to your physical attributes, so we need you there at 8:00am so we can start on time.

You will be introduced to the archery equipment, given a demonstration of good shooting technique, and, very importantly, the safety rules will be explained. This takes about 15min, and then we have you try it for yourselves. You will be assisted in this by our volunteer coaches who are also experienced archers.

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.

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.
