EVERYTHING HAS A Beginning
Leicester Ancient Order of Foresters Archery Club offers regular archery beginners’ courses, supervised and taught by a minimum of two coaches drawn from our coaching team of ArcheryGB trained and qualified coaches.
Each course consists of 6 weekly sessions lasting two hours each (although the first lesson is normally a little longer because of the time taken to issue equipment). The club provides all the archery equipment you will require; we strongly recommend that you do not purchase any archery equipment until after the course.
At the successful conclusion of your beginner’s course you will be invited to apply to join the club and ArcheryGB. Membership of ArcheryGB provides you with ongoing liability insurance, an essential requirement if you wish to shoot. You are not permitted to shoot at any venue, including the club ground if you do not have ArcheryGB membership. Unlike full club members, beginners are only insured to shoot during their lessons and while supervised.
Please note that juniors (those under 18) must be accompanied by a parent or designated guardian while on the field. For juniors to be able to shoot, an adult archer, who is prepared to take responsibility, must be present.
