Competent Archer Course
Beginning as a complete novice this 10 week course will guide you through the various aspects of medieval archery  to the culmination in the final week with a fire arrow shooting experience not to be missed.

Youth & Parent/Guardian Archer Courses
Our special youth programme caters for archers aged 7 - 17 years (younger archers considered depending on maturity, our youngest to date was 5.  Again depending on maturity older teens may wish to join the adult course) and the courses run at the school friendly time of 6-7pm each Wednesday or 6-7pm each Sunday.

All archers aged below 18 years must have a parent or guardian present so we offer the option of learning alongside your child/ward. Hot and cold drinks are available as well as a comfortable seating area to watch proceedings if you do not wish to participate!
