I have collected a series of videos from World Archery and our friends at Merlin Archery that will hopefully help you get the most from your course. I have organised them into the 6 weeks so you can identify with what you have learned in that week and from the handouts I have provided.
If you have any questions in regards to the course or any element of recurve target archery please don’t hesitate to ask.
