At BSAC we offer two ways to go about trying archery. We have Come N Try Nights 3 times per year and New Archer Tryouts run 6 times a year and bookings are essential. Both are for individuals aged 8 and above.
If you have already tried archery or are an archer returning to the sport, you can have an assessment by one of our instructors and apply to become a full financial member on the spot.
Come N Try Nights are a great way to try archery as a 'one-off' in a low-cost and safe manner. You will be shown the basic skills in order to safely shoot a bow and arrow. The Come N Try Nights run on a Wednesday evening between 6-7pm, all equipment is supplied. The session costs $25 per particpant.
New Archer Tryouts are run on a Saturday from 9am - 11am at the BSAC club grounds. It is tailored towards beginners who believe they may benefit from more than a 'one-off' archery experience. The cost of the New Archer Tryout (NAT) are $45 per participant. This covers all equipment hire, training tips from our qualified instructors and temporary member affiliation fees for 6 weeks. Additional visits during the 6 week temporary membership will cost $5 per visit or $7.50 per evening shoot in winter. (Please note: After 6 weeks, to continue as a full member of Archery Australia you will need to pay an annual association fee).
At the successful completion of the NAT you may be invited to join the club as a full shooting member. Most new members start shooting the OzBow Program. Ask your instructor for more information on the OzBow Self Development Program.
In the New Archer Tryouts you will learn all about the correct techniques and methods to shoot archery accurately and safely, while having a fun and exciting experience.
We recommend all new archers complete the New Archer Tryout with BSAC (or another registered archery club) before applying for full membership.
