Beginners courses

High Elm Archers beginners courses are run over three consecutive Sunday afternoons (weather permitting, during the outdoor season), each session lasting 3 hours, with a fourth session allowing student archers to gain experience of shooting in a club environment. To complete the course, candidates must attend all three of the instructional training sessions.


The course is run by our qualified Level 2 Archery coach, Graham Burrows, with the assistance of experienced archers.


During the course, candidates will be instructed in:


   range layout and safety

   how to assemble a recurve takedown bow

   barebow recurve archery

   free style recurve archery using a sight

   introduction to archery tournaments and rounds.
