Week 2: Lessons 3 & 4  (Approx’ 2 hrs) - Safety recap, Shooting Recurve style (with a sight). Archery Ettiquette

Week 3: Lessons 5 & 6  (Approx’ 2 hrs) - Safety recap, Scoring, rules & mini-tournament


Our Coaches & Experienced Archers will answer any questions about Archery so don’t be afraid to ask as you have your lessons.


If you would like to reserve a space on our Archery Beginners course, just drop us an email to the address at the top of this page  and after taking a few details we will confirm that your name has been added to our beginner list for the agreed dates.


If we need to change the dates of the course, we will offer you a new date or a refund. If you are unable to make the agreed date, we will try to offer you alternative dates, but as our courses are usually quite popular it may not, in some circumstances, be on the next course.




 


 


 


 


 



During the outdoor season (April to September) we teach our courses at Heath Park on Wednesday evenings from 18:15 onwards. Throughout the indoor season (October to March) courses take place on Sunday afternoons from 15:30 at St David’s College in Pen-y-lan.



Usually the minimum age for Junior archers to be taught by Castle Bowmen is 8 years old - exceptions may possibly be made for a single have-a-go event, but that would be at the discretion of the coaching teams assessment of the individual child.



For all courses, we provide all equipment. Our courses are taught with Recurve bows. After completing a Beginners Course, anyone wishing to join the club, depending on availability, we do have an equipment hire scheme so you do not have to rush out and buy your own bows and arrows etc. We have found this hire scheme beneficial as it saves parents the expense of purchasing archery equipment only to find their child loses interest after a few weeks.
