If you’ve ever considered archery, now is the time to get in touch! We run beginners courses throughout the year from age 10 upwards. Our courses last for 6 weeks, are run by qualified Archery GB coaches and you will be eligible to join our club on completion.

All our courses follow the guidelines as laid down by Archery GB and our club coaches are qualified Archery GB Coaches. From time to time junior assistant coaches, trainee Level 1 coaches and un-qualified experienced archers may be involved in coaching.

All the necessary safety and shooting equipment needed for the course is provided for you, though we do ask that you wear footwear with flat soles, tie back long hair and avoid loose clothing as this could result in you being unable to shoot.

Archers and the Parents/Guardians of junior archers are reminded that under no circumstances are under-18s allowed to shoot without supervision of at least two adults; a Parent/Legal Guardian and an Archery GB registered archer who is willing to take responsibility for the safety of the junior.

The coaching of beginners through Wearmouth Archers must be arranged through, and formally sanctioned by, the club’s committee for insurance purposes.

Our beginners courses are priced at £60 per adult for a 6 week course (reductions for families may apply), if you would like further information please get in touch.

Our next beginners course should start around September/October time. When available tickets will be on our Eventbrite page. Until then though if your really keen to get in to archery, get in touch with us as we may be able to arrange a bespoke course to get you started.

Archery GB have produced a beginners guidebook for those taking up archery lessons, you can find more information on this link.

If your an existing archer or wanting to get back in to archery after a break please fill out the form on our Membership page. We will be in touch with more information.
