Starting Archery

New to archery?

We have our Beginners Introductory Line just for you. This a 6-week beginner course where you will learn the basics of archery.  The course will cover all the safety elements as well as how to shoot. Mountain Green Archery Club provides all the equipment and coaching. At the end of the course we will discuss with you how to take your archery further.

The course is run in defined time blocks so that all students can learn together.  Each course is six weeks of instruction, held across a defined time period of approximately eight weeks (depending on public holidays, club commitments, etc.)  The dates are clearly laid out below.  Classes do run through school holidays, but not across public holiday weekends.  Please make sure that you can attend the classes in the course you are booking.

Numbers for each course are limited so you must book in advance.  Your place will not be confirmed until the coaching fee has been paid.

Suitability:  This course is for everyone aged 8 and older.

Weather:  Archery is an all weather sport so classes will be held if it is raining.  However, if the weather is extreme, shooting on the day will be deferred to a later week.

For bookings and information, please visit our event booking website (TidyHQ).

Once you have successfully booked and enrolled, see our Beginner Course Instructions.
