The best way to have a taster into our sport is either by coming along to one of our Have-a-go sessions or signing up to a beginners course. A beginners course is a great introduction into this fun and rewarding sport explaining all the safety rules while getting to try out various different bow styles.
At WOAC we host 3 to 4 beginners courses each year, these are a series of 4x 2 hour sessions where our ArcheryGB coaches instruct and demonstrate several disciplines of archery and all aspects of safety.
During these sessions you will learn :
- Warm ups and cool downs
- Range safety
- Shooting procedures
- Shootings styles – barebow, recurve, longbow, traditional and compound
- Bow assembly and take down
- Safe arrow retrieval
- Archery Ettiquette
If/when you decide to join the club you will also become affiliated with ArcheryGB our governing body, membership also includes liability insurance and regular magazines/information and the ability to visit other ArcheryGB clubs/competitions.
