Archery is a sport demanding a range of skills from a steady hand, strong shoulders, flexible muscles, a keen eye, and a cool disposition.
Most of us are familiar with the image of Robin Hood executing the 'impossible' by firing an arrow to split the shaft of one already in the target, archers call this a "Robin Hood". Whilst the equipment has improved in its technology, the sport remains essentially unchanged.
Pioneer Archers conduct lessons sessions for those wanting to have a go at the sport.The club has equipment which can be used for a maximum of 6 consecutive sessions. If after the six weeks you wish to take up the sport or continue with instuction, then participants are required to purchase their own equipment.
Archery Australia rules only permitted you to participate in lessons for a maximum period of 12 weeks, you must then become a member of a club.
Bookings are required for our courses;
We limit the number of participants on each course to ensure there is club equipment available and so as to ensure that you receive
plenty of "one on one" assistance.
