About the centre

Sign up here for the Winter Term 2017 of coaching and workshops at the Oxford Archery training centre, in partnership with ArcheryGB. As in the Autumn Term, the centre will deliver more than 20 hours of structured tuition in 9 sessions over an 8 week term - your joining fee for the term gives you access to all of these, and there are no hidden additional costs. The course structure is 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, and to help us split you into groups according to your current skills and performance level. 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; results will be provided to all archers along with videos of their shooting and other resources on a USB stick.

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