Get Into Archery

Beginners Courses and Coaching

The club has a number of archeryGB qualified coaches who run beginner courses and "have a go" sessions throughout the year.

We will be running the next Beginners course over six weeks (Friday evenings 7.30-9.30) starting on 19th October 2018.  The course is suitable for anyone aged eight upwards and will cover safety, basic shooting, scoring and competition, different types of bow and archery and much more.  For more information contact the Club Secretary through the  Contact Us page or directly at

Bingham LCAC is committed to giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy archery in an open and threat free environment.

We have had our own policy on Child Protection and related issues in place well before ArcheryGB.  When they put in place a safeguarding policy, we endorsed and adopted their policy statements, whilst still having our own approach embedded in our club constitution. AGB's Policy is updated from time to time and is the platform we operate from.  It is available on the AGB website.

All the club's coaches, regular helpers and our Child Protection Officer are DBS checked and aware of the policies we operate.  Members are provided with details when they join the club but if in doubt speak to one of the coaches or any committee member and they will be happy to help out in whatever way is needed.
