What we’re all about
MEMBERSHIP OPENS 12PM TUESDAY 23rd JANUARY
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.
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)
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.
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 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 will be available to buy once our society has finished the Freshers Fair and GIAG sessions. Once 20 places have been sold for each course then the membership will automatically be unavailable.
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 2017/2018
Give It A Go Term 2:
We will be holding 2 GIAG sessions on Monday 22nd January. Tickets for this can be bought on our website for £3 each. These sessions take place in Cromer Terrace Sports Hall located at the side of the LUU Refectory building
Session 1 will take place from 8pm-9pm
Session 2 will take place from 9pm-10pm
If we have spaces available due to people dropping out of the GIAG sessions then we will accept £3 at the door, however spaces cannot be guaranteed and you may have to be turned away.
Term 2 Beginners course:
The first session for the beginners course will be Monday 29th January, 8pm-10pm
The course will continue like this every Monday until the last session on the 5th March.
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.
