FAQs

What is the programme for the course?

Typical programme (may vary):
Week 1
Welcome. Allocation of bows and arrows. Safety talk. Introduction to technique. Freestyle shooting (ie. using sights)
Week 2 and 3
Learn how to put your bow together and take it down. You will be introduced to metric and imperial scoring. Different bow types will be demonstrated. Video will be used at times when you are shooting (If you do not want to be videoed whilst shooting we will respect that, but it is a very useful tool for improving technique). Information about Abbey Bowmen and membership will be given in week 3.
Week 4
Competition. Award of course certificates.

Who teaches the course?

Archery GB qualified coaches, helped by experienced club members.

What are the arrangements for juniors?

Adults and children are taught together. Those under 14 years old must be accompanied at all sessions by a parent or guardian (who can sit and watch or pay to take part in the course). For all under 18 year olds a junior consent form must be completed.You will get this link once you have booked.

What do I need to bring?

All equipment is provided by the club. Please do not buy equipment before doing a course; coaches will give advice on what to buy if you wish to continue in archery.

• Bring clean non-marking trainers/plimsolls to change into to protect the gym floor.
• Do NOT wear loose-fitting jumpers/jackets, or jewellery, or clothes with toggles near the neck as these tend to catch on the equipment.
• Bring a warm layer in case it is cold.
• Tie your hair back if it is long.
• We advise you to bring a drink with you - a still drink please, in a re-sealable bottle. You may want to bring a snack - we will have a break half way through each session.


What's the refund policy?

If you wish to cancel your place a full refund (minus an administration charge) will only be provided if a replacement applicant can be found before the course starts. Please email the organiser if you want to request a refund. We will respond within 5 working days. Once a course has started no refunds or credit will be given unless lessons are cancelled by the course organisers.

Is it ok if the name on my registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes. We will ask for information about each attendee at the registration stage.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
