A Taster Session is where participants are taught range safety and a basic T-Draw technique using bare bow style. The aim of a taster session is to give an opportunity to decide about progressing to a full course. However, for under 18 year olds, the final decision for this would rest with the attending coach for that taster session.
12-15 year olds must have an adult in attendance with them at all times. We do encourage adult relations of this age who would be attending to book on the taster session themselves and have some fun together!!
16 - 17 year olds need to have an attending adult with them but can apply independently through our website booking system.
18 year olds and above can apply independently through our website booking system.
Taster sessions take place on a Saturday afternoon - 13:00 till 14:15, Participants need to arrive half and hour before for equipment set up.
