Indvidual and Team Events

The Youth Challenge features an individual medal event and a team event whereby clubs can put together a team of three or more archers in either Compound or Recurve bow types.

In addition there are awards for the highest scoring individual Compound and Recurve Archers.

Two records still stand from the Coast Archers Youth Challenge:

17/2/19 Josie Hatch (Armidale), Female Cub Compound, Junior Canberra with a score of 880 out of 900 – National Record.

 

16/2/20 Darren Candra (SOPA), Male Intermediate Barebow Recurve with a score of 736 out of 900 – National Record.

Team Event:

There is a:

  • Compound Team Event and a

  • Recurve Team Event

 

These can be made up of archers using sighted and barebow.

There is no separate team event for longbow.

 

Longbow archers are grouped into the recurve division.

Teams comprise of three or more archers in the same bow type and can be of all ages, 20 and under. It is preferred that clubs form their teams and encourage all of their juniors to take part, irrespective of ability.

The top three scores of any team are added together. The total of the top three scores are used to determine the highest scoring team. All members of the team are counted as being part of the team even if their scores are not used to calculate a total score. In the event of a win, all team members are presented with the trophy on the podium.

If a club has three (3) or more archers of the same bow type then that forms a team.

 

All archers of that bow type must participate in their club’s team and may not shoot in a composite team.

Composite Teams

If a club does not have three or more archers to form a team, then they can combine with another club(s) that has less than three archers to form a composite team, providing they are all using the same bow type. The names will be drawn from a hat on the day to prevent ‘team stacking’.

Joey Division

Our competition accommodates the 11 and under age group (JOEY) and the maximum distance they need to shoot is 30 metres. They will also receive support during the competition with things like scoring. 

Medals & Trophies

We easily have the nicest medals on the circuit and they have become prized possessions for anyone that have won one before!

There are perpetual trophies for the Recurve Team Event and the Compound Team Event. The trophy stays at the host ground of Coast Archers and will have the winning team engraved on the plate. Trophies are used for the presentation and photographs at the event. Winning teams are given a framed certificate to take back to their club.

Scoring Devices

Archers are welcome to bring phones for scoring on iscored today, However, for the younger archers, we do have Samsung Galaxy tablets that have been set up for live scoring.

BBQ Lunch

1 round of hot dogs + salad are included in the cost of the registration for all competitors. Additional hot dogs are available for purchase by parents and spectators and hungry archers!
