Social and Life Skills
Archery has many transferable skills which can be linked in with Citizenship lessons or Life Skills and Personal Development programmes. Some of the skills archery promotes include: self-discipline, mental arithmetic, staying calm under pressure, cooperation, following instructions, working individually and as part of a team.

In order to take part in an archery session, students must adhere to strict safety guidelines, which encourages personal responsibility and consideration of the safety of others. Furthermore, involvement in active, structured activities with tangible outcomes has been shown to promote self-esteem and emotional well-being in short-term and longer-term projects.

Structure of Sessions
Sessions can be self-contained or part of a longer term programme depending on your requirements. Sessions are designed to be educational and fun, and generally last between 1-2 hours.

A typical first session runs as follows:

  • Sessions begin with a full safety briefing and providing equipment to each participant
  • Demonstration of correct shooting technique
  • Individual guidance to support each participant to shoot safely
  • Group shooting
  • Archery games and introduction to scoring
  • Finish with light hearted competition

Awards
On-going programmes work towards developing greater technique and understanding of archery. Students can work towards gaining specific awards through the FITA Beginner Award Programme (accredited through the Grand National Archery Society – GNAS).
