Event description

Description

Sign up here for the new Foundation Course of coaching and workshops at the Oxford Archery Training Centre, in partnership with ArcheryGB.

The Foundation Course delivers structured tuition in 6 weekly sessions, designed to improve your skills as an archer in four key areas: technique, physical fitness, equipment, and psychological preparedness. At the start of term a thorough assessment will help you set a baseline and your goals for the term. This is repeated at the end of term so that you can see how far you have met your goals and to identify areas for further improvement.

Parallel to this we run a Development Course with fortnightly sessions of individual and team coaching, which archers on the Foundation Course are welcome to sign up to AFTER THE BIOMECHANICS WORKSHOP on May 21. To sign up for Development Sessions, use this link.

Archers of all bowstyles and ages are welcome - all we ask is that you have the will and dedication to improve your archery.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a Beginner's Course, but aimed at improving and experienced archers who have been shooting for at least a year or longer, and have their own equipment.
