Two week Trials and Tasters for new students
The best way for a youngster to try the sport is by booking two full sessions (4 hours in total) at a cost of £50. If they continue for the term then the balance of the fees is payable. If not you are not committed to anything further. Click here to book a Two week Trial.

Each two hour session starts with a fun warm-up and then moves on to theory and practical exercises, ending with mildly competitive target shooting. There is a maximum of 2 shooters to each air rifle or air pistol and all students are fully engaged at all times. All students satisfactorily completing their first term will receive a Youth Proficiency Certificate in Target Shooting.
