About the Activity

Would you like your kids to experience archery?

Each school holidays, Mount Petrie Bowmen offers an inexpensive opportunity for school age kids from age 11 to the end of Year 12. Participants will learn basic archery technique using recurve bows. 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 9.40am so we can start on time. 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 course fee covers equipment hire, access to the venue, insurance and sufficient coaches to keep participants safe and the course moving along. You will be assisted in this by our volunteer coaches who are also experienced archers.

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.  Mount Petrie Bowmen reserves the right to refuse coaching to anyone who is not of the required age or physical ability.

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.

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