Primary School Offer

Arrows

Launched in September 2012, Arrows has been created for primary schools to introduce young children to archery in fun and safe ways. Designed to be delivered by teachers and sports co-ordinators with no previous archery experience or qualifications.

This ‘mini’ version of archery provides teachers with child-friendly equipment and resources to get started quickly and easily. Simple ideas for activities and competitions are provided that can be used in PE lessons, across the curriculum, in out-of-hours clubs and as part of the School Games. The equipment and resources provided make it possible for teachers to deliver archery in almost any setting in school.
