Description

The Bowmen of Walker would like to invite you to join our Beginners Course

Our beginners course consists of four three hour sessions.The first session will take place on Sunday 4 February 2018 at 9:30am with the following sessions taking place at the same time on Sunday 11th and Sunday 18th February. The final session will be held on Saturday 24th February commencing at 10 am and will be an introduction to and shooting with the club. Each session will last approximately 3 hours. The initial venue for the course will be the Ray Gray Centre (see attached details) and the costs will be:

Seniors (over 18 yrs old) £75

Juniors £40

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.

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.

There are some simple dress requirements for archery and 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.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 4the February... and welcome to the world of archery!
