This website is dedicated to both the coaching and educational aspects of archery that I offer, as well as the recreational side of archery which I can arrange in several forms.
If you are interested in learning archery, improving your current skills in the sport, or are more interested in trying archery in a relaxed way with the likes of Have-a-Go events, archery based parties or team bonding schemes, then you will find all you need to know within these pages.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information on any aspect of archery.
Thank you for your interest.
Coronavirus COVID 19 Return to Archery - Phase 1
Following the government's advice and Phase 1 guidelines v1.4 from Archery GB on 4th July, Targeting Archery are taking the first tentative steps in returning to archery. Initially this will be for Club Members only where there will be no sharing of equipment. Shooting will be under strict guidence which puts the safety of everyone first. Club members must book their sessions by contacting Karen in advance of each session.
The first club session will be Saturday 11th July with Tuesday and Saturday sessions continuing after that date. We will see how this goes for a couple of weeks and if all goes well we will investgate getting the postponed Beginners' Course completed as the next step.
We are also reviewing what club equipment is available (i.e. not shared) to decide if and when Come-and-Shoot sessions might be able to return.
Targeting Archery provides quality, experienced, qualified archery coaching to all archers, from complete beginners to advanced archers. I am a qualified County Level Archery GB Coach with plenty of experience with working with adults, juniors and disabled archers. I coach at several archery clubs, with the Yorkshire Archery Squad and along side World Class Programme Coaches. In coaching disabled people, I have built a special interest in working with injured ex-service people who are interested in archery as part of their recuperation process. I have coached several ex-service personnel, some who went on to compete internationally at various Invictus Games and DoD Warrior Games, several taking Gold in their class.
Before any archer can join an archery club in the UK, it is a requirement that they first complete an Archery Beginners Course. We run several courses throughout the year under the supervision of an Archery GB County Level qualified coach, who has lots of experience in working with juniors, adults and disabled.
All equipment is provided and we can take archers with little or no experience in archery and bring them up to the level required for safe shooting along with the safety aspects of archery and the basic knowledge required to complete the course.
When you successfully complete the course you will receive your archery certificate which you can take to any archery club in the UK and ask to join if they have the capacity to accept you. See below for information about our very own archery club: Targeting Archery Club.
Targeting Archery runs several Come-and-Shoot sessions on Tuesday afternoons.
We run separate sessions for adults, followed by our two "Kids Club" sessions. These are for junior school age children and senior school aged children.
All sessions run every Tuesday afternoon for an hour each. They are a great way to introduce yourself into the wonderful sport of archery and to see if it is for you. Once you have had a few sessions and wish to take up archery more seriously, you can join one of our Archery Beginners' Courses that run throughout the year, after which you will be ready to join an archery club.
If you are planning a larger event, gala or similar and are looking for an activity to bring in some customers, Targeting Archery can run an archery Have-a-Go stall as the main theme or as one stall as part of a larger event. This can be at our Scholes venue or possibly at your own site after an inspection for safety. We have a lot of experience in setting up and running an archery stall of this nature. Click the button below for more information.
Targeting Archery also runs its own archery club, called Targeting Archery Club.
Our club maintains its own website where you can find out all about the running of the club, shooting times, how to join and a whole lot more. Archers wanting to join a club in the Yorkshire area will do well to have a look at our club's website for consideration. Click the link below to open the club's website in a new window.
