The beginners courses at CMO are designed to give participants a broad introduction to archery as a skill, a sport and a social activity. The weekend setting gives a focused but relaxed experience that we know you will enjoy.
A full set of equipment is provided for each participant whilst they are on the course.
The course will run across one weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 till 16:00, including a break for lunch. Please bring a packed lunch and any drinks you rquire with you.
Each course covers the following aspects suggested by Archery GB:-
- Safety rules and regulations
- Basic T-Draw technique for target archery
- Recurve Freestyle using a sight
- Recurve Barebow without a sight
- Target and range etiquette
- Demonstration of other bow types
- Target and range set-up
- General advice on equipment and membership
- Plenty of coaching, practice and fun
All participants receive their own copy of the “Archery for Beginners Guidebook”. At the end of the course successful participants are awarded the AGB certificate of basic safety and competency. This certificate will enable you to apply for membership of any AGB affiliated club in the UK but of course we would welcome you to join as a new member of CMO Bowmen.
