About Archery Activity Days
The ancient sport of archery has long enjoyed a proud position in history, with the bows and arrows of the English archers winning battles and providing food for many throughout the ages. These days it is a great opportunity for people to try something high risk in a safe environment.
Whether as part of an archery club, fun activity days, summer scheme or a series of progressive lessons, each session can be tailored to the specific needs of the group. Archery is the perfect sport for all kids and adults, helping to improve hand-eye co-ordination in a fun, inclusive activity. By using games and challenges which combine mental and physical attributes, participants are able to develop their skills individually whilst also remaining part of a team.
Archery is available all year round as a range can be set up in any large space, from an outdoor field to an indoor sports hall. Our Archery GB qualified instructors will bring all of the necessary equipment direct to your venue.
Archery taster sessions last for 1 hour and will start with a brief introduction to the sport along with a safety brief before moving onto teaching the students correct shooting technique. The session then finishes with a fun competition between the students. We can work with a maximum of 12 students per instructor and can fit 4 taster sessions into the duration of the day.
An improver session is perfect for those groups wanting to take it one step further. The session lasts for half a day and will take the students from complete beginner to having an understanding of how to operate safely on the archery range. The half day session allows more time to hone those skills and put them into practice with some fun competitions.
The advanced archery session lasts for the duration of a full day and takes the students from picking up their first bow to by the end of the session being able to select their own equipment, string a bow and shoot confidently on the range. The advanced session forms the basis of the GCSE syllabus for Archery. Please talk to us about tailoring a day to suit your needs.
