HAVE - A - GO SESSIONS
A Have-a-go session is exactly what is says on the tin. Anyone can book a place on our website and come along and try their hand at shooting with a bow and arrow under supervised conditions. There will always be one qualified coach present.
These will be short half hour sessions on a rolling basis over an afternoon, so you will need to arrive and depart promtly. There will be a nominal £10 charge per participant payable on line when booking.
If anyone is interested to further developing archery skills, they can discuss with the coach whether or not progression to a Taster Session would be an appropriate next step.
MINIMUM AGE FOR TASTER SESSIONS IS 10 YEARS
A Taster Session is where participants are taught range safety and a basic T-Draw technique using bare bow style. The aim of a taster session is to give an opportunity to decide about progressing to a full course. However, for under 18 year olds, the final decision for this would rest with the attending coach for that taster session.
HEIGHT RESTRICTION- irrespective of age, participants must be a minimum height of 150cm or 5ft
10-16 year olds must have attended a Have-a-go sesssion and have been recommended to attend a taster session by the attending coach and must have an adult in attendance with them at all times. We do encourage adult relations of this age whoo would be attending to book on the taster session themselves and have some fun to gegther!!
16 year olds and over can apply independently through our website booking system.
Taster sessions take place on a Saturday afternoon - 14:00 till 16:00, a week or two before up and coming full courses which gives participants time to decide if they want to book onto a full course of training.
AIMS OF OUR TASTER SESSIONS

- to give over 18s the opportunity to decide whether they want to progress to a full course
