I've never shot before - what's the best course for me?

5.0 

Either one of our Taster Sessions or a Beginners Course would be ideal.

You can even try a Taster Session and if you like it and want to continue learning, join one of the Beginners Courses and finish your training without waiting, as long as there are spaces left.

How do I book a place on a course?

3.3 
  • Visit the CMO website and register for a user account
  • Go to the course date on the event calendar or use the up and coming courses links on the right hand side of the training pages
  • Select the session you want to book and follow the booking and payment instructions
  • Your booking will be automatically confirmed on receipt of payment
  • We do not make tentative bookings due to the high demand for places.

What if I have a visual or hearing impairment?

3.8 

Archery is an inclusive sport and we will endeavour to accommodate archers with any disability.

This is why we ask you to state any known impairment when you book your place, so that we can make appropriate provision.

All of our coaches have been fully trained to help course members with a range of needs including visually and hearing impaired and we will to do all we can to accommodate you.

Do I have to join CMO Bowmen when I have completed my course?

3.5 

The simple answer is no. When you have satisfactorily completed your 12 hours of tuition, you will be presented with an Archery GB certificate saying that you are now safe and competent to shoot using simple T-Draw technique.

You can take this certificate to any AGB affiliated club in the UK and apply for membership.

Of course we hope you will choose to join CMO Bowmen, but that choice is entirely yours!

Do I need my own equipment?

3.6 

All the equipment that you will need for training is provided on the course.

As part of the Beginner's Course we give you advice about what equipment to buy and where to buy it, should you wish to continue with archery.

If you decide to join CMO Bowmen we offer a free New Members Programme, where as part of our membership services, you can use the same training equipment for the following four Saturdays whilst you sort out your own equipment.

There will also be other club members available to offer help and advice about buying and setting up your own equipment.
