How do I learn?

The best way to have a taster into our sport is by 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
  • Scoring
  • 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.
