Beginners Courses

Burton Joyce Archers run beginners courses twice a year in June and October. The course is four sessions of two hours each and costs £60.00 No previous archery experience is necessary and we can usually accommodate about 16 beginners per course. All equipment is provided and all of our instructors are qualified Archery GB coaches. When you have finished the course you will be presented with a certificate and you can then join us. Our membership fees can be found here.

Because Archery can be a potentially dangerous sport all new Archers have to attend a beginner’s course and complete a minimum of six hours training before they can join a club. If you are interested in attending a Beginners Course please complete a registration form and your name will be added to the list for the next course.  We will then let you know more details closer to the date.  Please note that we require a £30.00 deposit per person to secure your place(s).  If you are booking within four weeks of the start of the course, please send full payment.


We can accept Juniors (twelve years old and older) on our Beginners Courses but we require that the parent or guardian attends the course and joins the club with their child(ren).
