Archery

What we’re all about

LUU Archery Society is a fun and friendly group who are happy to welcome experienced archers and novices alike to their training sessions which take place three times a week. They provide all the basic equipment for beginners but those with preferred bows are welcome to bring their own. Training is provided by professional coaches.

Training

Our outdoor archery sessions take place every Saturday during the summer holidays, from 12-5pm at Weetwood Playing Fields.

Indoor sessions take place during term time 3 times a week at Cromer Terrace Sports Centre:

Monday 8pm-10pm (beginners course for the first 6 weeks) starting on the 15th October

Wednesday 7pm-9pm (beginners course for the first 6 weeks) starting on the 17th October
and 9pm-10pm 

Friday 7pm-10pm (Invitation only and competition practice) 

Once the beginners courses are complete then the Monday and Wednesday sessions open up for everyone to use.

Beginners courses:
We run 2 beginners courses in semester 1 and another in semester 2 with 20 places each. They consist of 6 mandatory sessions where our coaches train everyone on how to handle recurve equipment safely. 

Once the course is complete then each person will gain a certificate which can be used to prove that they are safe to shoot at other archery clubs. There are no fees for the course and all equipment needed can be borrowed from our club. 

Membership

Membership costs £18 for the year or £10 for a semester. There are no session fees and no requirement to have Edge membership unless you are not a student at the University. 

Beginners membership: This type of membership is for those who wish to join our beginners course and are currently available to buy. Once 20 places have been sold for each course then the membership will automatically be unavailable, so register as soon as possible to guarantee a place!

Advanced membership: this type of membership is for those who have already completed an archery beginners course. We require a beginners certificate as evidence of course completion, if this can not be provided then one of our coaches can evaluate your shooting to see if you meet our standards of safety. 

Important Dates 2018/2019

Term 1 Beginners courses: 
The first sessions for the beginners course will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, and will likely start during the second week of October (8th & 10th).
The course will continue like this every week until the last session. 
Once the course is complete then we open up all of our weekly practice sessions for attendance. 

Although it is unlikely, if we do not think you have reached a competent standard of safety to be able to shoot without supervision then we may ask that you also attend specific sessions after the course has ended so more one-to-one training can be given.
