How Old Must I Be to Begin Archery?

We welcome younger archers into the club. Children from the age of 8 years are able to join the beginner’s course. However, a great deal also depends on the individual child. The coaches may suggest that a child older than 8 may be better waiting a year or two before they start.

Our main concern is that any archer can handle their equipment safely, reducing the risk of injury to themselves as well as to other archers, or people around the shooting field.
