The Indoor Season Starting

Heading Indoors for a Cozy Archery Season with Barnsley YMCA Archers

As the leaves begin to change colour and the crisp autumn air settles in, it’s time for a new chapter in the world of archery. At Barnsley YMCA Archers, we’re excited to welcome you to our indoor venue, the Barnsley YMCA Sports Hall, located at 1 Blucher Street, Barnsley, S70 1AP. Our indoor sessions will run every Tuesday and Friday from 7pm to 9pm, starting on the 12th of September and continuing until next March 2024.

While we’ve enjoyed the open fields and sunny skies throughout the summer, the shift to the indoor range promises a whole new level of excitement and challenges. Here are some reasons why you should look forward to our indoor archery season:

1. Weatherproof Archery: Say goodbye to weather-related disruptions. With our indoor venue, you can enjoy archery without worrying about rain, wind, or chilly temperatures. It’s a cozy and controlled environment where you can focus solely on honing your archery skills.

2. Consistent Conditions: Shooting indoors means consistent lighting and air conditions. This allows for better accuracy and helps you fine-tune your technique without external variables affecting your shots.

3. Fixed Shooting Range: Our indoor distance is a fixed shooting range of 20 yards, offering a unique challenge for archers looking to enhance their precision and accuracy at this specific distance.

4. All Skill Levels Welcome: Whether you’re a seasoned archer or just starting your archery journey, our indoor sessions are open to archers of all skill levels. Our experienced coaches will be on hand to provide guidance and support to help you improve.

5. Winter Challenge: The indoor season brings new challenges, such as shooting at a fixed distance of 20 yards and adapting to the unique indoor setting. It’s a great opportunity to push your limits and take your archery skills to the next level.

6. Outdoor Field: We understand that some archers still relish the outdoor experience. Weather permitting, we will continue to use our outdoor field for archery sessions, giving you the best of both worlds.

7. Fun and Friendship: Archery is not just about precision; it’s also about having fun and forging lasting friendships. Our indoor sessions provide the perfect setting for camaraderie and good times while enjoying the sport we all love.

So, mark your calendars for Tuesday and Friday evenings, and join us at the Barnsley YMCA Sports Hall for a fantastic indoor archery season at a fixed 20-yard distance. Let’s make memories, improve our archery skills, and have a blast together. Whether you’re a regular or a newcomer, there’s a place for you in our vibrant archery community.
