Following the demonstration, it's now your turn! Our expert instructors will talk you through the process for your first few arrows offering guidance to help you hit the target. Throughout your archery session the aim is to get you shooting as much as possible within the boundaries of safety; our instructors will continually offer guidance to develop your skills and help you work towards hitting that centre gold!
During your session we'll play various games to practice shooting and these will be tailored so they are suitable for the age range and abilities of the group. Whether competing against yourself or the other archers these games are great fun and will help to develop you skills in a highly enjoyable and challenging way.
There are several varieties of archery that we can offer sessions in;
- Balloons - We'll attach balloons to the targets and you'll try to burst them by hitting them with your arrows.
- Score Competition - Participants take it in turns to shoot in rounds and we record the points scored to see who comes out top.
- Colours - Each participant or team must shoot white, black, blue, red and yellow in order; the first participant or team to shoot all the colours in order wins.
- Connect 3 - Take it in turns with a partner to try and get 3 arrows in a run, sometimes tactics are better than skill.
