Archery Beginner Course (Outdoors)
July 29, 2023 09:30 - 12:30
Wicklow Archers are happy to be hosting another Archery Beginner Course in July/August at our outdoor venue near Enniskerry in Dargle Valley (depending on weather). It will run over 2 weeks, Saturday Mornings, 9.30pm until 12.
Please be aware this course is outdoors and can be affected by the wear. All equipment will be provided.
For children under 12, we'd recommend that a parent sign up as well, however if that's not feasible, the parent should be on-site and engaged in the course so they understand all the safety issues around archery. For children under 16 we'd just ask that a parent stays on-site as well while the course is happening in line with child safety regulations. Minimum age is 8 years of age.
In the course, we'll cover how to shoot an Olympic recurve bow, how to setup and take down a bow, how to aim, safety and etiquette of being on a range and in a club, different types of archery and competitions, where to go to buy your own bow and so on.
We look forward to seeing you on the shooting line!
