Instruction

Most places only offer the briefest introduction to Archery after that the individual is often on their own. With the Ambrose Archery course the participant is taken from the very basics to the point they are competitive in competition and independant in setting-up and maintaining their equipment. It is our aim to develop a complete archer.


    Training sessions are conducted more in the, martial arts way than in the typical beginners course way of a fixed number of lessons. I've made a course of 10 levels with participants needing to demonstrate at each level:

  • the ability to shoot 120 (out of a possible 150) with 15 arrows at increasingly greater distances and/or smaller targets
  • a skill (like assembling a bow, making an arrow)
  • knowledge (like how to score)

So just as a karate student works her way through belts by learning and demonstrating skills, the centre will have levels. I believe this will provide longer term support as you seek to improve in this sport. Also an hour of instruction costs no more than any other hour.
