What will I learn?
A general guide to the course is as follows. You will always be supervised by a leader when shooting, and while you are shooting you will get 1 to 1 coaching tailored to you.
An introduction to archery including a safety talk, archery lingo and a demonstration of Barebow shooting. We will cover basic shooting techniques, introduce the equipment and get you shooting!
Building on the basic techniques learned in session 1, Barebow aiming techniques will be introduced. At the end of this session you will receive a booklet to keep with all the archery basics in it.
This lesson offers the opportunity to shoot a larger quantity of arrows with an emphasis on developing a consistent routine. You will be shown how to either assemble or disassemble a bow. There will be balloons to shoot!
You will be taught how to shoot the Recurve Freestyle (with a Sight) technique, and practice this style.
You continue to learn and practice Recurve Freestyle, and will be taught how to analyse your own technique – so if a shot goes wrong you know why.
An introduction to competitive archery using a simple scored round to teach the procedures and etiquette used in tournaments. There will be a prize in each session for the best score for the round, and another prize for the worst (luckiest!) white.
