Whitch are the age limits for the sport of archery?
There are no age limits, but practically we have found that is wery difficult for a child to properly master even the weeker existing bow earlier than the age of seven, while the upper age limit is only related to the health status of the archer, as there are shooters still competing in official tournaments with age over 80.

And what we do after the couse ?
You have to buy a full personal archery set following the indications of your instructors and then subscribe to our club, CAM - COMPAGNIA ARCIERI MONICA, so that you can enter our Training sites were you'll be continuously followed by the Instructors of our club.
