ARCHERY BEGINNERS COURSES
As we are starting to come out of lockdown we are looking at starting some beginners course on a very reduced scale, only four targets with one person/household group per target. The courses will run for three consecutive weeks with 2hours each session. The targets will be well spaced and equipment will de disinfected before and after use. We will be following ArcheryGB safety guidelines.
We will be running bookable courses and if you would like to take up one of these courses please could you let me know which session you would like to attend as we will only have four targets available at any session
At Sutton Archery Club we normally run three major beginners courses a year, which start in May The amended courses run for three weeks, these will be one person/household to a target with qualified ArcheryGB coaches to develop basic shooting technique and safety and after this, if you decide to join. You will join in the booking system, all our members go through at present

Sutton Coldfield Rugby Football Club,
The Roger Smoldon Ground,

If a junior joins with an adult their membership is reduced from £75 to £45. If you require a certificate for membership of another club, that is also awarded.
