Physical Activity – If you are looking to participate in Archery as part of your Duke of Edinburgh Award, then this is a perfect opportunity. Archery is ideal to demonstrate a sustained level of energy and physical activity. Most participants we see will undertake learning archery as a new physical activity over 3 months for their DofE award.
Skills and Volunteering – It is possible to achieve these sections participating in archery, but we would need to create a very bespoke learning plan to attain these. To do this you would usually already be a competent archer. For example, if you wanted to train be an archery coach then this would be a Skills section activity, whilst being a volunteer coach counts for the Volunteering section. Do contact us to discuss how you can achieve these options.
Duration – The DofE scheme states that Sectional activities need to average an hour a week. It is best that you discuss your options and develop a programme planner with your DofE leader/coordinator to determine timescales for completion.
How you can achieve this? – First you must complete our Archery Beginners Course.
Following this we will then monitor your development over the following weeks. On completion we will provide you with a personal activity log.
You will learn about the equipment, how to shoot safely, and most importantly learn how to shoot and know what is right and what is not so good!
- We provide instruction on shooting different styles, and support your first milestones in learning the skill of archery.
- On completion of the first part of the course (8 hours) you can consider yourself an archer and you can shoot unsupervised on our range.
Please check with your DofE Leader for applicability before booking.
As you know, archery is a safe sport as long as we all follow a few basic rules. Our insurers are very strict on how we assess and demonstrate your competency to shoot. As a consequence we will need to ask you for some basic information before you can shoot, this will include your agreement to the rules of the range and is for the safety of everyone.
For under 18’s a parent or guardian must remain on the premises, but don’t fear, you can relax in our viewing area with a cappuccino, and watch all those arrows hitting the gold!
