Introductory Archery Lesson - Hertfordshire

Try your hand at traditional - and challenging - bare bow archery with this introductory archery lesson in Hertfordshire. Work on your aim and precision, and take part in a fun archery competition!

Archery Experience Days: For anyone interested in the sport of archery, this Hertfordshire archery lesson is a wonderful introduction to its most authentic and traditional style - the challenging 'bare bow' style. This means that the bow will not be equipped with a 'sight' to help you aim, so your skills will be truly put to the test! You will be taught the basics of archery from a highly experienced Grand National Archery Society (GNAS) qualified and registered archery instructor.

You will spend much of your archery lesson practicing and getting a feel for the weapon. Towards the end of your session, yourself and the rest of your archery class will take part in a fun competition to see who is the top archer of the day!Once you and the rest of your group have arrives at the Hertfordshire archery centre, your archery lesson begins with a safety briefing to introduce you to the centre and the correct behaviour that is expected when you are out on the archery range.

When your briefing has finished, your GNAS qualified archery instructors will give the group a lesson on the proper stance to employ for archery. You will also learn how to properly hold the bow and how to load an arrow, ready to fire!

After this you will have plenty of time to practice, learning from experience how to make that arrow go where you want it to! Once you have gotten to grips with using the weapon, you will spend the remainder of your archery lesson competing in a fun contest, trying to outdo the other budding archers in your group. You will get to shoot 16 arrows, and will be marked on how true your aim is - and at the end of the lesson, your instructor will present you with a certificate that displays your score!
