Starting Archery at WVAC

Beginners sessions are run from 9am to 10am usually on the second and third Sundays of each month.

To begin archery with WVAC you MUST make a booking for one of the beginners days. Available booking slots for first time come and try, and return temporary members are listed below via TryBooking. A small booking fee is payable.

Each session costs $20 per person and includes equipment, group coaching, and insurance for a one hour shooting session.

On the day, try and arrive at the club at 8:45am as there is some administration and equipment fitting required. This will allow you to shoot right on 9:00am

What's next?

Once you have completed your first session and can shoot safely, you can shoot on the regular Sunday mornings at 9:00am without a booking.

Each session is $20 and is 1 hour
