A fantastic week of Air Rifle, Air Pistol and Archery for young people aged 10 to 18. Equally suitable for girls and boys - air pistol shooting is one of the fastest growing sports for girls.

It is for both beginners and more experienced shooters, but is not suitable for very experienced youngsters who are already competing in the National Squads. Earlier courses have sold out, and early booking is advised.

The course will be run by instructors certified by the National Smallbore Rifle Association, shooting's governing body. All have current DBS (formerly CRB) checks and regularly coach young people.

The five day course includes an introduction to archery, and four days training in air pistol and air rifle. It builds from a get-to-know-you session and safety briefing to several hours shooting each day, including the exciting rapid fire air pistol that is a key part of the modern pentathlon. It is a practical, hands-on course, with most of the week being spent on the range. And it's a lot of fun!

It will also assist in promoting self-confidence, self-discipline, team-work and friendship. Beginners will find it an easy and gentle introduction to the sport whilst more experienced shooters will benefit from several hours of coaching each day.

All equipment is provided, and there are no additional costs.
