How to make a start in archery

The best way is to get training from qualified coaches at an Archery Club affiliated to Archery GB. These coaches are qualified to train beginners, are insured and have adequate facilities to ensure that training is safe and effective.

Courses are run throughout the year by clubs. The courses will have a minimum of 6 hours intial training, usually followed by further coaching during normal shooting sessions. The course covers all aspects of safety, etiquette, archery skills, equipment and extensive practical archery. After successfully completing the minimum six hours instruction and supervised practice you will receive a certificate of competence, which enables you to join any ArcheryUK affiliated club.
