Caerau Dragon Bowmen


The Club has been running very successful beginner's courses for the past 15 years both outdoors during the summer & indoors during the winter months.

For 2023 we offer a beginners course of four 2 hour sessions on Friday evenings run by Archery GB qualified coaches who will instruct you as you progress, covering range safety rules, warm up exercises, bare bow & sighted shooting, etiquette, scoring & an explanation of equipment.

All equipment is provided by the club during your lessons & (subject to availability) for a few weeks after completion when you will need to consider purchasing your own.

We can advise on equipment & specialist archery shops where you will get expert advice on your purchase but please do not be tempted to purchase on-line or from eBay, you could end up with a very expensive mistake!

On completion of the course you should have a good appreciation of archery safety and basic awareness of good shooting posture. After the course you have two options, either stop shooting or we hope that you will register as a club member and continue to shoot independently.

The club is affiliated to the Glamorgan Archery Association, the Welsh Archery Association & Archery GB the national governing body for target archery in the UK. As a member of Archery GB you will be able to shoot at any other Archery GB affiliated club, this is useful when on holiday or if you go off to university.

We regret that we cannot offer lessons to children under the age of 10.

Course Fee

Cost for each course is £60 per person, payable in advance to secure your place.

The course fee includes insurance, coaching & all equipment hire during your lessons.
