Delivering the training...

location, location, location...

Our venue for beginner's courses is 'the studio' which is a perfect room within the sport's hall at Dene Academy.

The Studio is within a few paces of the main sports hall where our club shoots twice a week during the indoor season.

Easy parking and every modern facility are on hand.


Our beginner's course is delivered by a 'lead' Coach to a maximum group size of six trainees.

Three other coaches or senior archers are present, each directly supporting two trainee archers.

Archery is a precision sport and the shooting technique is a complex one, however with a friendly coach by the side of every trainee there's little chance of anyone being 'left behind'.

Split into 2 x three hour sessions that have breaks for refreshments, the sessions are a week apart, fatigue is unlikely to rear its ugly head in our training sessions.

It's not all 'work, work, work!' either - Trainees have fun moments too, with the opportunity to try different types of bows. There's a wide choice of bows out there - so why not try a few of them?

No time for dancing, though!
