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
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!
