It is really important to wear tight fitting tops/sleeves. Lots of layers are best. Indoor comfy shoes (not stilettos!) that won't mark the floor. NO OPEN SHOES OR SANDALS. Long hair must be tied back and you may be asked to remove some body piercings.
Yes. The taster sessions are suitable for age 6yrs+ and the beginner courses for 8yrs+, but do bear in mind the time and use your own judgement if you think it will be too late for them. I am looking into providing other times so please register your interest for weekend courses. Parent/guardians must accompany children shooting at all times.
With covid restrictions lifting you can book for individuals at SHOTS and you may be part of a larger group.
Only yourselves and any refreshments you may need. As you will be taking part in a sporting activity you will not be required to wear a mask for the session. All equipment and insurance will be provided.

8 hr Course £100pp
£80 pp under 18yrs
If you can't make a session due to covid I can reschedule your session to a later date provided I have 24 hrs notice. If I have to cancel the session for any reason you will get a choice of a full refund or a different date. Less than 24hrs notice of cancellation is non-refundable. All sessions must be booked and paid for in advance, except drop-ins.
If you have any questions about sessions please get in touch and I will try to respond within a week.
