As Bedford’s premier archery club we are always over subscribed on our beginners courses!

This course will be the second course that runs to our new standard and boy have we done a lot of work on it. This is now far more beginners coaching than just a course to get you to shoot.

During the 4 week coaching course we will take you from basics and give you all the tools you need to develop as archers.

  • Recurve Sighted; We will teach you the Olympic style of shooting.
  • Safety; archery is one of the safest sports you can do. We will teach you how to shoot safely.
  • Correct form; right form day one we teach you how to draw the both safe and efficiently.
  • Scoring; Scoring is simple and easy, it gives you all the tools you need to track your progress.
  • Bow styles; while we will teach you recurve we will give you a introduction to other styles, including compound and longbow.

Once you have finished your course we do something that no one else in the county does, we offer you a 2 extra weeks on top of the beginners coaching, where you can come down to the club and shoot on the regular line with our members. This is a great way to try the club before you join us.

The Cost of this course is £55, it is lead by an Archery GB level 2 coach assisted by up to 5 level 1 coaches, which include county team members and national level archers.
