Try Before Committing - Taster Session

The taster session provides an hour or mores tuition with an experienced and qualified archery coach. This archery experience provides participants with the opportunity to try the sport before committing to a full beginner’s course.

 

All equipment needed is provided, and each participant will learn basic shooting technique, safety as well as a little about our club, the sports history and taking the next steps.
