Getting Started


Wanting to start archery?

If you would like have a go at archery our club offers a “Come N Try” program. Our Come N Try program for 2021 is run on the second Saturday of each month (except December). During daylight saving periods the Come N Try program runs between 1pm and 2pm, and during non-daylight saving periods from 12pm to 1pm. Specific times and dates for 2021 are listed below;

February 13th 1pm          March 13th 1pm        April 10th 12pm         May 8th 12pm

June 12th 12pm                 July 10th 12pm          August 14th 12pm     September 11th 12pm

October 9th 1pm            November 13th 1pm


You can “Come N Try”  3 times ( over a maximum time frame of 12 weeks), before you need to pay for a club membership, see the “Membership/Joining CCAC” page for more details.


Age Limits

Due to the potential hazards that archery presents, the minimum age for new shooters at CCAC is currently 7 years of age. Though, our club has some discretion on age, for children who have previously been coached or trained or who have had significant prior experience. Additionally, all archers under the age of 12 years require a parent or close family member to either shoot with them or accompany them every time they attend an event. This is to provide their child with the appropriate; care, supervision and to help them remain focused on the many safety requirements.


Organizing your First Shoot in our “Come N Try” Program

Be sure to check the dates of our Saturday “Come N Try” program (see the top of this page). As there is a limited amount of equipment and supervisors you will need to book a session. If you do not book in you, unfortunately, will NOT be able to participate. To book your sessions, either email our club at the address  OR complete the contact form at the bottom of this page.

On the Day

On the day, all new participants need to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the session, so that you can sign in, pay fees and select equipment. During the session you will receive instruction on safety and basic technique, as you shoot at targets at a distance of 10 meters.

Costs for Come N Try (Shoot fees and equipment hire)

Juniors $10 including $5 equipment hire
Adult $15 including $5 equipment hire



We have a few low poundage bows that you can try out down at the club. We have quite a few very experienced club members that can advise you about places you can purchase your own equipment or you can do your own research. However you choose your gear you will need your own equipment before you can shoot further than 10 m on the range or in the bush at any of our outdoor events.
