For archers interested in a proper training program or for those

who wish to learn more advanced shooting techniques, we provide

coaching sessions with a qualified archery coach. We can provide

coaching at our workshop location, at your local club or even at 

your own home (if you have your own target). We specialise in both 

recurve and compound bows.

Cost for coaching is set per hour.

1 archer: $50/hr

2 archers: $50/hr ($25 per archer)

3 archers: $60/hr ($20 per archer) 

As archery is a social sport, so we do encourage coaching in small

groups with friends & family. It is better to start juniors in

competitions early on regardless of experience.

For time slot availability, please contact us to arrange a session 

via the form below or call or text us on 0410 096 710.

Why do we recommend coaching? Well the typical beginner archer experience is usually:

1. Show up to a 'Come n Try' program or beginners course.

2. Learn about the safety rules.

3. Learn where to stand, how to nock the arrow, draw back the bow and shoot.

4. Learn a few technique basics (stance, anchor, how to grip the bow, etc).

5. Couple of games for entertainment (such as popping balloons).

While this is a great way to introduce archery to new people, it does skip the foundations of proper archery technique. Archery is a process that involves executing several steps in a specific order to achieve consistency. If an archer does not understand the steps required, if even a single step is skipped or performed poorly, it will influence your ability to execute a clean and precise shot.

The steps are:

1. Stance

2. Posture

3. Setup

4. Raising the bow

5. Pre-Draw

6. Draw (Loading/Anchor)

7. Holding/Aiming

8. Expansion

9. Release

10. Follow Through

Did you know that the first 5 steps make up 85% of your technique?

 

More importantly we provide you with a direction where you can advance your archery skills instead of just showing up to your weekly club shoot with no goal in sight.

We also teach bow setup and tuning (for both recurve and compound) so that your equipment is performing at its best so you only need to focus on your own shooting.

So who are our coaches? A quick resume of our primary coach:

Eric is our primary coach who is a well seasoned archer and

experienced coach. He is currently the head coach for the

University of Sydney. Having initially taught archery at several

high schools, he is well experienced in junior development.

Moving onto higher stakes in the University environment (as well

as coordinating the senior program for several clubs), he has

coached university elite athlete archers who have brought back

countless regional, state and national medals.
