We organise five Beginners’ Courses a year, two mixed courses (senior and junior), two senior courses and one junior course.
These are run over a five week period, currently at a cost of £60.00 per participant. The sessions are fully supervised by our coaches and all equipment is provided.
We are able to offer wheelchair access to our outdoor and indoor facilities. In 2018 we hope to run Courses in April, June and November - if you would like your name added to our Waiting List, please email your details (name, address, date of birth and contact telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ll events are fully supervised by our coaches and all equipment is provided, although it is advisable to wear suitable footwear (walking boots, trainers etc) and a long sleeved close fitting top. We have a Club Disability Development Officer, Kevin Davis, who is a qualified level 1 coach.
His job description includes increasing participation in the sport for people with disabilities, to develop School - Junior Club links, and to work with Cleve Archers Junior sub committee to improve opportunities and increase participation in the sport.
We also have, in the range of our equipment, Genesis bows which are shorter than a normal recurve bow (easier to adapt for wheelchair use) and much more adaptable to a range of draw length and draw weights, and more than suitable for introducing archery to a range of disabilities. The Genesis bow eliminates the need to individually fit bows to participants; additionally they are easily adjustable.
