Are you interested in taking up Archery but aren't sure what the difference between the Olympics and Robin Hood's bow is?

With our beginners courses we not only teach you that but also everything you need to know about how to shoot (and hit the target!)

North East Archers beginners courses are an intimate affair, with a maximum of 9 participants on each course you get undivided attention, sharing, at the most, your coach with 2 other beginners. This allows the course to progress at your own pace, and allow plenty of opportunity for shooting. Not only that but we'll also give you tips and methods that you can use at home, or work, on the bus, before you have even purchased a bow.

The courses are run as a 1 day intensive session, allowing rapid and continuous progression, without the need to recap concepts covered in previous weeks, as would be necessary on a traditional course. The course runs from approximately through till , and is split into a series of mini sessions, each lasting for approximately 50 minutes, which is followed by a refreshment and comfort break. We'll even provide tea and coffee making facilities along with juice, although feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks/lunch with you.

Our coaches are registered with Archery GB (the national governing body), and frequently attend coaching conferences and workshops allowing them to pick up new tips and techniques. With a coach who has worked with the national squad in our ranks, we can safely say we know what we're talking about.

All equipment is provided by us for the duration of the course and is designed for a wide range of body types. At the end of the course, no obligation, we'll measure you and tell you what equipment our expert coaches think you'd require to continue with the sport, as well as discussing other bow types and progression from the course.

As an exclusive bonus, all members who complete the course with us are eligible for discounted club membership for the first year!

At the end of the course we'll provide all successful participants a certificate which is theirs to keep, along with a couple of secret freebies.

With archery being a sport that the whole family can enjoy then there is no reason why you shouldn't consider taking a beginners course with us today.
