Beginner Training Sessions
Join us at the Mardyke Arena UCC (Hall 1) on Tuesdays from 19:50 to 22:00
UCC Archery Club hosts Beginner Training Sessions at the Mardyke Arena UCC (Hall 1) on Tuesdays from 19:50 to 22:00. Training time is split into multiple time slots, which you can sign up for through the Clubs and Socs Portal.
These sessions are open to all ability and experience levels. Our committee, coaches and experienced archers will be there to help guide and support you.
To contribute to the upkeep of equipment, there is a €1 shooting fee each week. This fee can be paid in cash to the records officer when you sign-in for training.
How to Book
A training slot can be booked through the Clubs and Socs Portal by navigating to “Sign Up Events” and selecting a slot to book. You may also unbook a slot, should you wish to change your booking later.
Note: We ask that you do not book more than one slot per week. This is to ensure that everyone gets an opportunity to shoot every week, as space and equipment is limited. For the same reason, if you do not intend to use a slot you have booked, please unbook it.
First Time Archers
If it is your first time shooting with UCC Archery Club, we ask that you arrive 10 minutes before your time slot is due to begin. This is to allow time for a mandatory safety demonstration from our Safety Officer, who will teach you how to safely use the equipment.
Every year, we host a number of seasonal competitions during beginner trainings. This is a great opportunity to learn how archery competitions work, engage in friendly competition, and (best of all) win some prizes! Keep an eye on our Instagram for competition announcements.
