Students coming to improve their archery skills can be assured of receiving experienced archery coaching using the most up-to-date archery techniques as set out by Lloyd Brown (U.K. Archery Head Coach) and the Archery GB coaching team.

General Coaching

Archery students just wishing to generally improve their archery can receive sessions with an aim to look at your current techniques, using various methods such as watching, recording and playback to identify where improvements can be achieved, looking at exercise specifically for archery and more. A program of improvements can be prepared and a time span agreed to put our agreed plan into practice. Hourly sessions each week for the agreed number of weeks will then commence, or a one-off session can be arranged to check progress following your own practising. You should see an improvement in your techniques by the end of the plan which should hopefully be reflected in your score cards.

If you are interested in a general improvement plan please contact me to arrange a meeting and initial assessment session, after which a suitable weekly/monthly session will be arranged for as many following sessions as required to complete the plan.

Specific Area(s) Coaching
Performance Coaching

As an experienced archer, you may know what area(s) of your archery in which you want to concentrate to help you improve. After an initial evaluation session, we will design a plan of activities to concentrate on that area, and an agreed time scale to put the performance coaching plan into action. Weekly/monthly sessions of one hour will be arranged to follow up on the plan with the objective of improving this/these areas that you wish to work on.

If you are interested in improving one or more areas of your archery then please contact me to arrange a meeting and initial assessment session, after which a suitable weekly/monthly session will be arranged for as many following sessions as required to complete the plan.

Coaching Prices

I have to pay extra for the hire of the hall for indoor sessions, so my prices have to reflect this:

Coaching 1 person: £50.00 each £35.00 each
Coaching 2 people: £35.00 each£50.00 total
Coaching 3 or 4 people:£30.00 each£50.00 total

Sessions are usually 1½ hours long. Maximum of 4 people per session.

The first session will include a discussion of what you would like to achieve followed by an assessment of your current level. A plan of action will be agreed with you to take you up to where you want to reach, and the rest of the session will be shooting and coaching. Following sessions will follow the plan and include warming up exercises, shooting and coaching and warm down exeresis.

For indoor sessions, I may need to ask for assistance setting up the hall and taking down as I cannot complete on my own if I don't have an assistant with me, thank you.

Sessions will be arranged to take place at a time and on day of week to suit both parties. I do have other commitments so not every day/time combination can be catered for but I will do my best to agree something suitable for both of us.

Junior Archer's Club

There are two sessions for junior archers that run on a Tuesday evening all year round:

  • 3:45pm - 4:45pm Primary school age group
  • 5:00pm - 6:00pm Senior school age group
Places are limited for each session, so please register in advance to ensure a space is available. All equipment needed is provided along with qualified coaching. All abilities are catered for from absolute beginners to experienced archers. Students who have their own equipment can bring it for approval, but I may have to ask them to use my equipment if it is not suitable for use on a mixed session such as this.

The price is £5.00 per child for each hour long session.

A responsible adult (min 18 year old) must stay with the student throughout the full session. I reserve the right to ask students who do not behave, cause disruption to the session or act in a dangerous way, to leave the shooting line.
