We have not 1 but 2 award schemes with badges available to mark your progress and achievements.
Our next course is planned to start Sunday 23rd July 2017 (dates may alter due to competition).  Please ask about places for this or taster sessions.
Longbow courses now on offer, see below for details.

Available for all ages.  We give you 4 x 3 hour lessons (and not 4 x 2 hours like many other establishments) for just £69.  That's only £5.75 per hour.  We can now offer equipment when you join so you don't have to buy before you can shoot, making Archery more affordable*.  We also have plenty of unusual Targets

COURSE DETAILS:
This is a 4 week course.  The course will be held on consecutive Sundays unless we have to postpone a session due to bad weather or other activities using the field.
All equipment for the course will be provided.   Coaching now available with  a level 2 Coach.

We aim to teach a basic level of shooting including safety, equipment and technique, sufficient for anyone to consider taking up the sport and shooting with some degree of confidence.   Our Guarantee is to provide the best Archery course you can buy.  Based on our experiences of Archers who received their training from other sources.  We have been surprised at the lack of some skills and basic knowledge which has always been a part of our courses.  As our main coach works with all ages and in so many situations as well as attending courses and conferences, Michael is always updating his techniques and knowledge.

PRICE:
£69.00 per person (some discounts may be available for multiple bookings)
Taster sessions £10.00 per person.
All money must be paid in full prior to the start of the course and should be sent with the appropriate booking forms in order to confirm a place. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis however spaces are limited and it may be necessary to offer a place on a later course if too many are received at one time. No refunds are available for cancellations made less than 21days prior to the course start date.

All cheques should be made payable to
Redheath Archers alternatively you can pay by direct debit.

Although we request that juniors must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the course as required by child protection guidelines we are starting to make allowances for some juniors around 15 years of age once we are happy that they are responsible enough.

WE DO NOT ADVISE ANYONE SHOULD PURCHASE EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO THE COURSE.

We always try to accompany our members when they first purchase their equipment.

TIME:
The lessons will start at 2pm until 5pm. Please arrive early to help move some of the equipment and also help us clear up afterwards.

We know how difficult it is choosing your equipment which is why we offer our members the opportunity to be accompanied by experienced archers or coaches when going to the shops.

All stages can be covered or part assistance for those in need of a little help.

* Equipment is free to use for up to 2 months from date of joining the club after which a £10 hire charge per session will be made as there is a high demand for this equipment and we need to cover losses and maintenance.
