Beginner courses

Please note: Beginner courses for 2022 have resumed in early spring. If you’d like to be added to a waiting list for a course, please contact our Coaching Coordinator on

Our 2-week intro course focuses mainly on safety while teaching you the basics of archery, preparing you to join Wicklow Archers and begin to progress your shooting. All our Beginner Courses are run by Archery Ireland L0 accredited coaches.

Archery is a fantastic sport for people of all fitness abilities. While there’s no upper limit on age, we’d recommend a minimum age of 9. Children under 16 must have a parent or guardian present for the duration of the course, while children under 12 must sign up to the course with an adult. 

When and where

Beginner courses are held at our Dargle Valley outdoor range over 2 consecutive Saturdays from 9.30am-12.30pm. 


Adults: €90

Juniors and students: €70

Remember, Wicklow Archers is volunteer run and organised. This means all course fees go towards club venues, equipment and events. This also means we might not be able to respond immediately, but we promise we’ll do our best.  We’d love to get paid to do Archery but we don’t. So please be patient as we try to accommodate you!
