How is Archery Summer Stars run?

• A minimum of three half-days and a maximum of five half-days
• It can be mixed with other activities to make a full day/weeks programme
• Archery Summer Stars provides a taster of how exciting archery can be with games and fun, or it can be run as a beginner's course with a competition

Who is Archery Summer Stars aimed at?

• It is ideal for young people aged between 8 and 14 years old - but each course can be tailored towards the needs of the participants
• You can use Arrows or traditional equipment, again tailoring the equipment to the participants

Who can deliver Archery Summer Stars?
