Beginner’s Course

Next Course: 21st October 2018  Location: Leasowe Leisure Centre, Twickenham Dr, Leasowe, CH46 1PF  Time: 9 am to 10 am

Our beginners’ course is an introduction to archery for people who are interested in taking up archery as a sport.  The course is spread over
6 weeks and consists of six 1-hour sessions focusing on recurve target archery, as seen at the Olympic Games. These sessions are
structured with the emphasis on shooting, to maximise the time you will actually spend shooting with a bow under the supervision of a
qualified coach.

On completion of the course you will:

be aware of the safety requirements of archery
be able to describe the various components of a recurve bow
know what the different types of archery are and what bow styles are available
be able to successfully shoot a recurve bow at a distance of up to 20 yards
know how to complete a score sheet as used in an archery competition
understand archery terminology
have reached a sufficient standard to allow you apply to join an Archery GB registered club

The course starts with a safety briefing, which will explain the layout of the archery range, the signals that need to be followed and the
general do’s and don’ts of archery.  You will then be equipped with a bow, arrows and safety equipment before starting to shoot a recurve
bow in the bare bow style with an instructor.

All the equipment needed for archery is provided by the club. You should however wear comfortable clothing that is not loose fitting (no
baggy sleeves) and footwear that covers the entire foot (no sandals or open-toed shoes).

For courses taking place during the outdoor season, please bring a raincoat and/or sunhat and sun cream as appropriate, depending on
the weather forecast. You may also wish to bring a snack and a drink.

The cost of the course is £65.00.
