The three levels are described here:

Beginner

a) Persons new to archery would enter the Novice program in which they are taught the basics of the sport.

b) Persons with some previous exposure to the sport would enter the Beginner program in which the basics are reinforced and developed.

c) Specific guidelines as outlined below

Intermediate
