Beginners Courses

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 list and 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.

The fee for the course is $100 per person.

COVID-19 Update [March 25]

THE RANGE IS CLOSED from today and no one should use the range or enter the containers until further notice.

We appreciate that it might seem okay to use the range to exercise in isolation but Golf Clubs have been specifically told that they are not to be open therefore it is reasonable to expect the same of us.

It is in all of our best interests to get through this as fast as possible and adhering to the letter and intent of Government instructions will help us achieve that end. 

Take care everyone and we hope to see you shooting again soon.

Note that you can still join our mailing list for Beginners Courses. Obviously we will not be running any courses during the lockdown period, and we don't run courses over winter in any case, but if we have your email address then we will let you know as soon as we do start running courses again.
