Description

The Bowmen of Walker Archery offer Archery GB recognised beginners courses for anyone wishing to take up archery as a sport or just to have a fun archery experience. The sessions are a delivered by qualified coaches and are an enjoyable introduction to target archery.

Our beginners course consists of four three hour sessions.The first session will take place on Saturday 15th June 2018 at 12:00 noon at our outdoor venue (Benfield Centre for Sporting Excellence - at the rear of the centre) with the following sessions taking place at the same time on the following three Saturdays. The cost of the course is:

Seniors (over 18 yrs old) £70

Juniors £35

For this we undertake to provide you with all the necessary archery equipment that you will require to successfully complete the course. During each session you will be supported and guided by Archery GB qualified coaches and advanced archers. The aims of the course are to provide you with a basic understanding of shooting techniques and the disciplines for shooting in safety and with relative accuracy. We will also introduce you to different bow types and a little of the history of this ancient art. Please note that all sessions must be successfully completed in order to achieve the course goals.

As this course is an outdoor event there are some simple dress requirements for archery. We would be grateful if you would wear closed in shoes or trainers and comfortable but close fitting clothing preferably including a long sleeve top. If the weather is a little inclement then a waterproof/warm top and robust footwear would be advisable.

Just in case you are tempted to buy your own equipment we strongly recommend that you do not purchase any equipment until you have completed the beginners course.

The course has mixed participation with both Adult & Junior places available. Juniors must be accompanied by a responsible adult throughout the course. We also recommend that where possible attendees arrive 10 minutes early to allow for a prompt start to the sessions.
