The beginners courses at CMO are designed to give participants a broad introduction to archery as a skill, a sport and a social activity. The weekend setting gives a focused but relaxed experience that we know you will enjoy. A full set of equipment is provided for each participant whilst they are on the course.
Over 18's can book independently through the website booking sytem.
10-17 year-olds will need to have an attendant adult with them to supervise for the whole course.
10-15 year olds would need to have attended a Taster Session and would only progress to a full course after a discussion between coaches, parents and child. The club reserve the right to make the final decision about progression to a full course.
The course will run over a weekend - Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 till 17:00, including a break for lunch. Please bring a packed lunch and any drinks you require with you. The course will be outdoors so please dress for the English weather! No open-toed footwear please. Face jewellery or piercings must be removed for safety reasons.
