- LESSONS -
The Archers of Caledon provides archery instruction for both the beginning and experienced archer. Group lessons are conducted by coaches certified by the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). Participants must be at least 12 years of age and of average strength to be able to draw the school bows and benefit from a multi-student training setting. Parents or guardians of youth participants under the age of 18 must accompany the child and are required to stay in the range for the duration of the lesson.
Younger students can be accommodated, on an individual basis, through private lessons. All equipment is provided by the club, and no previous experience is required.
Group Lessons are held on Saturday mornings from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (Beginner 1) and 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (Beginner 2) (see schedule for start dates). In addition, participants are able to use the Club range on Thursday evenings from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM for practice. The cost is $165 incl. HST per session which includes an individual finger shelf tab for each archer to keep. Each session consists of a 5 week period. Advanced registration is required. Class size is limited to 10 students and the student/coach ratio is 3:1. Private lessons can be arranged on an individual basis subject to availability of coaches. Archery is one of the fastest growing family recreation sports. Start your enjoyment of the sport with proper instruction. Our schedules for training have always been fully booked months in advance, therefore, we encourage you to register early.
