Following an introduction and demonstration from their group leader, children receive individual coaching for their first arrows, until we are confident they have the skills needed to get arrows on target. Children use bows appropriate to their size and strength and everyone taking part in archery sessions must always follow the strict rules for the archery range. We take care to ensure that, after initial coaching, a good pace to the session is maintained ensuring the children get to shoot plenty of arrows.
As the session develops, the skills learnt through expert coaching are put to use in tournaments and fun based archery challenges.
* Archery at Barhaugh Hall is not totally indoors. Although it is in a wooden building with the whole of the shooting and waiting area under shelter, it has an archery netting roof for a good length of the range.
