Beginners Courses

Archers of Raunds runs regular Beginners Courses at the club Manor School and Sports College venue in Raunds, East Northants (Northamptonshire). These courses are run over five consecutive weeks (weather permitting during the outdoor season) and provide archers with between 6 and 10 hours of tuition using beginners recurve bows.

The sole purpose of the course is to teach the student archer the basics of safe shooting as defined by Archery GB. As a student archer, you will learn about the parts of a recurve bow, how to safely assemble the bow and then take it down again, how to undertake a full warm up and then how to safely nock, aim and loose the arrow. As the course progresses, you will also learn about etiquette on the shooting line and how to score a shooting end.

Each end of shooting will be supervised by your course tutor - one on one. Along with the safety elements, you will learn good shooting form and you will begin to hone your shooting technique ready for when you graduate to full member status and begin shooting as a full club member.

Please review our special beginners pages for more information.
