Beginners Courses

Beginners courses will start again in April/May 2022.

We apologise for the delay this may cause in you starting archery but we are limited in the number we can invite on to courses and support afterwards. We suggest that if you are not on our waiting list you email your details to the Beginners Organiser to be added to it.

If you have already emailed RLSAS to enquire about a place on a course then you are already on the list and do not need to email us again as you will be contacted as soon as we have a place available for you.

Joining RLSAS

Just Finished an RLSAS Beginners Course

If you have completed an RLSAS beginners course in the past and would like to join us you would be most welcome. Please email the membership secretary at    to leave a message and your details.

Experienced Archers and having completed a Non-RLSAS Beginners Course

We are quite happy to accept new members who have previously been members of the AGB and those that have recently completed an approved beginners course.  It is important to note that it is a condition of the AGB insurance that all novice archers must have completed an approved beginners course.  In both situations we need to check your ability and as such please email the Club Coach  to book a time for an assessment.

Please allow 7 days for a reply.

Note for Novices

Novices who have completed an RLSAS beginners course may use the club bows for a few weeks during club sessions before purchasing their own equipment.

Novice archers wishing to join RLSAS after completing a beginners course at another club are very welcome, but they will need to have their own kit prior to an assessment with the Club Coach.

Have-a-go events

RLSAS will not be running any “Have-a-Go Sessions” until summer 2022.

To enquire about Group HAG’s or Drop In HAG’s that we may be running in the future please email the organiser  .
