Membership is open to graduates of our Beginners Courses and to experienced archers. More…
Experienced archers may be permitted to use the range subject to an assessment of their shooting. Email our coaches to arrange an assessment.
We run courses for beginners from October through May. No experience is necessary and all equipment is provided.
Courses are run by Archery New Zealand certified coaches and are open to adults and children from the age of 12.
Consisting of four two-hour sessions held over successive weeks the courses cover safety, equipment, shooting and scoring. We provide Olympic-style recurve bows and teach Olympic-style archery but the skills taught are applicable to longbows, barebows or compound bows, and to field archery or bow hunting.
Upon successful completion of a course you will be able to shoot safely and qualified to shoot unsupervised. We will award you a certificate that should enable you to join any archery club in New Zealand. Having observed your shooting your coaches will be able to provide you with personalized advice on equipment purchases.
Courses are scheduled irregularly and often at short notice so we cannot provide you with a list of dates but you can subscribe to our mailing listand we will email you as courses come up. Saturday and Sunday mornings and Monday evenings are most common times but courses may be run at other times.
