Archery Session Offsite (Equipment & Instructor)

From: £50.00

Mersey Weaver have  a stock of equipment suitable for Beavers through to Explorer aged young people and adults.

We have available a number of Permitted Archery Instructors who can be booked, in advance, should you not have your own Permitted Instructor. Currently, they are only available by prior arrangement in evenings or at weekends.  One instructor is required for every 6 archers shooting; however, this ratio may be adjusted depending on the age of the archers as Beavers may need a higher ratio of supervision on the range.

Please note:

  • We only hire our archery equipment with a Target Sports ASU Instructor for use away from QCW.
  • You are responsible for providing, or booking, a suitable offsite range (e.g. Cheshire Scouts Forest Camp).
  • Subject to the distance travelled our Instructor may charge mileage at 45p/mile, plus any toll fees.

Product Description

Target archery is an internationally-recognised sport which features in both the Commonwealth and Olympic Games. This is the most popular form of the sport where, as its name suggests, participants shoot at static targets in order to score points. The size of target used, and the distance over which they are shot at, varies. A round consists of a number of ends of arrows. This is the number of arrows that each archer shoots prior to the scores being recorded and the arrows collected. When shooting indoors, ends normally consist of three arrows, and outdoors, six.

In order to achieve consistent scores, the archer aims to ensure that they are consistent in what they do for every shot. This includes standing in the exact same position, drawing the bowstring back the same distance, aiming at the same spot and so on. Many archers only ever compete against themselves, aiming to better their own personal best scores. Others will enter competitions and tournaments at local club level, county level or even national level.
