Archery Course Page Listing

Basic details about the day are as follows: (As before LUNCH will NOT be provided, so please bring something to eat if you need to)

I have listed most of what would be expected on the right, and it should not take longer than about 2 hours MAX

I plan to have 2 hour sessions throughout the day - Please let me know via the email link what times you are preferred

09:00 - 11:00
11:00 - 13:00
13:00 - 15:00
15:00 - 17:00

Finally, as promised - please look at the attached Bad Form 2 PDF, and try to identify the number of things wrong you can see in ALL the photos BEFORE your assessment day!

A prize will be given to the closest number that agrees with mine - Good luck!

See you on Saturday 14th!


For your assessment, you need to demonstrate AS A MINIMUM the following:
(Remember we are NOT looking to fail ANYONE - Prompts will be given if needed)
  • Get your bow ready to shoot barebow - and pack away afterwards
  • Check arrow length on someone else and why its important
  • What are the main safety features of a range, and what do they do
  • Getting yourself ready to shoot including WARM UP and COOL DOWN afterwards
  • Scoring someone elses arrows (Groups of 3 from HIGHEST to LOWEST - eg 8, 8, 7  and then 4, 2, Miss)
  • Demonstrate and Explain FAST and COME DOWN and why they are used
  • Retrieve & carry your arrows SAFELY (Remember look behind before pulling arrows from the target!!)
  • Take turns at being Field Captain, and explain what you need to do before shooting
  • Demonstrate a GOOD style of shooting (Repetition, Repetition, Repetition!!)
  • Finally - coach someone and find something good about their style, and something you might improve.
For the Assessment Shooting you will either shoot at a 40cm OR a 80cm Target (Depending on age and if applicable personal choice)

Shoot MAX 12 arrows as sighters
Shoot 36 Arrows in ends of either 3 or 6 (up to you)

The Archery GB Badge colour you get will be dependent on your score (With RED being the highest and WHITE the lowest)

I have added a file below with the scores you need and the average per arrow with the badge colour you will get. (JPAS Scores - BB - JG)
