Beginner's Courses

Mount Petrie Bowmen conducts inexpensive Beginner's Courses in archery with qualified instructors, using safe modern equipment. Everything is provided for your tuition, and later, expert advice is available when purchasing you own equipment.

The Beginner's Courses are run at regular intervals throughout the year. Bookings are made online beforehand so we know how many people are coming. Click here for the Course Calendar and book into the next one.

The course is run on two consecutive mornings over one weekend. The course commences at 8.00am but we need you there by 7:45am so that we can distribute equipment before starting. The mornings finish between 11.00 to 11.30am.

Beginnerís Courses are for those wanting to become archers and who have the desire to learn good technique and shoot well. On successful completion of the course you will be able to become a member of the Club and participate in further coaching until you are ready to join in regular Club shoots.

Cost is $130 per person. The course fee covers equipment hire, access to the venue, insurance and sufficient coaches and instructors to keep participants safe and the course moving along. It also includes two return visits to the Club on Saturday morning to take part in group coaching in the indoor hall. Range fees ($6.00 18+, $4.00 under 18) and equipment hire fees ($8.00) are charged for each of these visits.

If you already own your own archery equipment you will not be permitted to use it on the Beginnerís Course or for the two Saturday morning visits.

If you are only wanting to try archery to see if you might like it, why not book into one of our Come & Try courses instead? Click here for the Course Calendar

A word on archery for kids, especially little kids. Learning archery has at least two elements that some little kids find difficult. There is the physical element where the bow has to be pulled back a lot of times and this can be quite physically demanding. Then there is the mental bit where there is a demand for the learner to be aware of their body and to understand what has to be done with their body and to be able to do it consistently. Generally we find that the age of 10 is the earliest that children can deal with those two parts of learning archery.

Archery can be for the whole family, older people and those living with a disability. Bookings and payment are only taken online. A link to our upcoming courses can be found on our Course Calendar
