WCA Beginners Courses are held over a four-week period on consecutive Saturdays.

Our courses are designed to teach students archery basics and safety protocols. Students are taught the five principles of Stance, Grip, Draw, Aim and Release under the supervision of qualified archery coaches.

Students new to archery must complete an introductory Beginners Course before being eligible to join the club and free shoot on the range.

Students are introduced to the different types of bows. All equipment is provided.

Guidance may be provided on what type of equipment is suitable however, we recommend students DO NOT purchase personal equipment until after successful completion of a Beginners Course, want to make a commitment to the sport AND have successfully applied for membership at Waverley City Archers.

Group sizes are limited. Bookings are essential to reserve your place in an upcoming course.


Adults $120 and Juniors $80 (under 18 years of age).
