Archery’s High Safety Record

Archery is one of the safest sports with a reported injury rate of less than one incident per 1,000 participants in 2004. Other activities like golf and fishing have an injury rate of up to 1.5 to 2 times the rate for archery. Sports like soccer, baseball and basketball have injury rates 15 to 25 times higher than archery.

Archery maintains its high safety level through the proper training and certification of archery instructors. When the proper procedures are followed, archery is a very safe activity.

We are First Aid certified and carry a fully stocked First Aid kit with us at all times. We have full cell phone reception anywhere on the practise and forest archery ranges.

However some risks remain. These risks could be people not following rules and putting themselves or you at risk, gear failure, string slap and general risks associated with walking and being outside. By booking our activities you agree with the level of risk you will be exposed to. A detailed health and safety briefing will be provided at the begin of each booking.
