Archery Beginners Courses


 What’s all this about an Archery Beginners Course….??

  • Aim4sport runs beginners courses lead by Qualified Archery Coaches throughout the year.
  • The course is a recognised Archery GB course and a certificate will be issued to those who pass all the safety requirements.
  • Once completed the certificate can be presented to any archery club as proof that you have met the requirements for shooting safely, and if you meet all of the club’s criteria, may will be eligible to join.

 What size are the Classes and how long will the course run….??
