Beginners Course

Archery Beginners Course Information


We at Liffey Archers club run archery beginners courses on an ongoing basis. A new beginners course begins approximately every 8 weeks and lasts for a duration of 6 weeks. All our Club coaches are “Coaching Ireland” trained and certified.

All participants who complete an introductory course into archery at Liffey Archers are provided with a Certificate of competency from the Club. This certificate can then be used to provide proof to an Archery club should you wish to join as a member that you have completed the introductory course into Archery.

Minimum Age

At Liffey Archers Children wishing to take part in a course must be 10 years of age or older.


Children/juniors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times during the training course. If a parent is not able to stay with their child during the full duration of the course for what ever reason then they must speak with the couches on the course to inform them. We encourage all parents to stay to support their child during this exciting time of trying a new sport, Archery can be very addictive and children have a tendency when they shoot well to be all excited and full of smiles, seeing this first hand i know this is something parents may not want to miss.


We supply all the necessary equipment so there is no need to buy anything beforehand. In fact, we recommend that people do not purchase any archery equipment before completing a beginners’ course with an “Archery Ireland” approved club.

All equipment is provided for the duration of the course and is covered by the cost of the course fee. The equipment provided is:

  • Finger Tab
  • Arm-Guard
  • Bow
  • Arrows


Once you have completed one of our beginners’ courses, and the coach is satisfied of your competence, you will be given a certificate of competency and offered membership of Liffey Archers Club.

This certificate recommends you for membership of any “Archery Ireland” affiliated club.


We are now accepting bookings for all our courses through our new online booking facility. Please visit our Book a Course page for more information.
