Flexible Learning

Whitburn Archers offers flexible Beginners Sessions for all ages and all abilities. Archery is a growing and popular sport that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Over 12 attendances, you will be put through all the content normally covered on a formal course. The only difference is that you choose when to attend. Turn up for 12 weeks in a row, or turn up for two, miss three, turn up for another four etc until you hit 12. Book your place online, pay for your ticket, and you will be assigned to a coach and away you go.

If you are not sure you want to do a full course, that’s fine, feel free to come once and have a go and see if it is for you or not.

Why do we do this? We realised that if our current longest serving members wanted to take up the sport today, they would not be able to commit to a rigid course structure. If our most fanatical members could not manage this, then it is not realistic to ask it of anyone.

Who is welcome?

Anyone and everyone. We have the fletchlings for the under 8’s and there is no upper age limit so long as a person can understand the safety rules, they are welcome, irrespective of age. You do not need to have ever tried it before.

We can accommodate all superhumans, our coaches are trained to work with wheelchair users to the visually impaired or hearing impaired. We would appreciate it if you can contact us  before coming down, but just so that we can sure we have the right coaches and bits of kit there. Or just come down and meet us and have a chat.

Archery is a very inclusive sport, kit can be adapted to all needs with enough notice, any concerns please just contact us.

How do I take part ? – Session Times

Sessions start on Sunday 1st October 09:30 to 10:30

All equipment is provided and delivered by our club coaching team, headed by qualified Archery GB coaches.

Please wear a reasonably tight fitting top as we don’t want clothing to get caught in the bow. We ask that you tie back long hair and remove any lip and nose piercings, you don’t have to but they are worn at your own risk.

On successful completion of the course you will have satisfied the basic safety and technique requirements of our national professional body Archery GB. You will be given  certificate which allows you to join any Archery GB registered club (including ours), but why would you want to go anywhere else?
