This is a brief overview of the guide by Peter Mosse.

"The basis for archery is simple - shoot the arrow exactly the same way each time. In practice, this can take some time to master. New archers must be taught the basics of sound archery technique, right from their first arrow. As they advance, they need feedback from qualified coaches who can correct bad technique that may otherwise sneak in and slow their progress.

Learning correct technique cannot guarantee rapid progress, but it will help to avoid the frustration that accompanies poor technique and thereby prevent new archers leaving the sport.

This manual stresses good guidance from the beginning and aims to provide a resource that can be returned to time and again during an archer's development.

In preparing this guide to field archery, I have maintained some consistency with other Australian archery publications. In particular the 10 steps to archery that form the basis of many coaching and training programmes have been retained; these form a sound basis for anyone starting out. They have been significantly enhanced by the addition of colour photographs."
