In order to improve, at archery, what do we need, and how would we get towards that goal - lots of practise, quality shots each improving on the last, a mind unbothered by other things - concentrating on just the shot, and bringing your body into a sequence that is fluid and smooth. How do you put this into words - well an attempt to this is : Dedication and Harmony, towards Perfection

This year we have trialled undertaking beginners courses for people that are keen to learn Archery, comprising a number of short sessions with some people. We now have several new members, who have undertaken the full training course, and for the other sessions we have had positive feedback. Well done to our Coaches, and the other club members who have been supporting this initiative.

If a club member has a query about any aspects of our club, or a question to ask about the Calendar or other archery related matter, please consider contacting the Club Secretary, and they will assist, or point you to someone that can.

When contacting the club, please provide a valid email address, along with a phone number. It would be helpful if you use the email address for the Secretary, and also include ACA in the start of the subject line.

Secretary, ACA
