4.         2015 World Youth Archery Championships: Statement from World Archery

World Archery has had some inquiries from teams in relation to the dates of the World Archery

Youth Championships since the month of June is not ideal for them. We regret to inform that no

other date is possible neither for World Archery nor for the event's organiser since the 2015

calendar is simply full.

We understand that certain member associations will have to make choices but it just not

possible to fit four world championships (including Olympic/Paralympic qualifiers), three

continental games, the Universiades, four world cup stages and a final, the Olympic test event

and several continental grand prix and championships within five months.

As a reminder, the dates of multisport events are fixed without World Archery consultation. We

also have to guarantee the quality of the events and make sure that we staff and equipment are

available to run it.

In consultation with other International Federations, who face the same issue, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) we are looking to see how changes can be made to the competition calendar in the future to make sure that in 2019 we do not face the same or even a worse situation since the Asian Games will be held in that year as well. The IOC has established a working group on the international calendar.

The 2015 Indoor Mail Match Program will take place over 12 to 13 weeks from January 1st  to March 31st.Archers may submit up to 12 (or 13) scores during this time period. The round shot is the Canadian 300 round (no inner ten).

Your best 6 scores obtained over the 12-13 weeks of the Program will be used to calculate your ranking in your age/equipment/ category.  At the end of the Mail Match Program only the top 6 scores will be used to calculate the average score for each archer. As long as 6 scores are received before the March 31st deadline you can be involved.

The Indoor Mail Match is like two competitions in one….first archer’s average scores will be ranked according to Archery Canada / World Archery categories where gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded. Second, archers still have a chance to win a gold medal if they place first in their category and have not won a gold medal under the Archery Canada category (these can be found under the Indoor Mail Match Rules).

Clubs, please use the tally sheet from the website to be sure it is the latest version of the tally sheet.

More information can be found at the link provided on the Archery Canada website at

On behalf of Roger Garrod, Chair of the Archery Canada Rules Committee, provided below are reminders about Archery Canada rule changes for 2014 and 2015. 

Refer to the Rule Change’s 2014/2015 Summary (May 2014) for all updates at:

Indoor Target Scoring

Effective May 2014

·         Scoring of Indoor 18m and 25m Rounds

o   ALL categories (divisions and age classes) shooting a compound style bow now use the compound (inner 10) target scoring the inner 10 ring as 10 and the remainder of the yellow as 9.

·         Scoring ONLY the Canadian 300 Round

o   ALL categories use the combined inner/outer ring targets and score X – 10 – 9

o   this is most relevant to the  Mail Match competition which uses the Canadian 300 Round.

Division updates

Effective 01 January 2015

·         Divisions name changes – these do not affect the equipment division requirements

o   Compound Unlimited Division (CUnl) is now the name of the former Bowhunter Open Division

o   Compound Fixed Pins Division (CFP) is now the name of the former Bowhunter Release Division

o   Compound Fingers Division (CF) is now the name of the former Bowhunter Fingers Division

·         Hunter Division is again recognized as a developmental division. Hunter is not recognized at Championship events.

o   Competitors shooting the Hunter configuration are encouraged to shoot Championships in the Compound Fixed Pins Division that uses almost identical equipment

o   Hunter Division now includes the former Hunter Fingers Division

·         Recurve Division is now recognized as a developmental division welcome to participate in 3D events. Recurve is not recognized at 3D Championship events.

o   Competitors shooting the Recurve configuration are encouraged to shoot 3D Championships in the Barebow Division that uses similar equipment without sights or stabilizers

·         Youth Compound categories are now in the Compound Unlimited categories. Depending on equipment used (fat arrows, draw weight, etc.), youth and Masters may register as Compound Division or Compound Unlimited Division as they are offered at the various events.

·         Common Divisions for all disciplines

o   Without equipment changes or category name changes, it is easier to register for participation in all disciplines – 3D, Target and Field

o   Depending on the event, not all categories may be offered, but more opportunities will be accommodated.

These and other important updates are included in the Rule Change’s 2014/2015 Summary published in May 2014 and available at:

4. Canadian Train to Shoot (CT2S) 900 Round 

 

Rationale: At an Archery Canada Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) planning meeting held in March, 2013, a gap was discovered in the tournament offerings for developing archers in the Train to Shoot stage of the LTAD. The transition from indoor to outdoor competition requires many archers to go directly from 18M in an indoor round to 55M for a Canadian 900 round. While some archers may be prepared to make this large step, it is too big a challenge for others. Consequently, a new round was developed to enable new archers to experience outdoor tournament competition while still being able to achieve positive results. 

 

The Canadian Train to Shoot (CT2S) 900 Round was designed to meet a number of requirements: 

  • Provide a challenging and fun distance and target configuration 

  • Generate a reasonable increase in quantity of arrows from indoor events 

  • Be a logical progressive step towards a Canadian 900 or World Archery round 

  • Be easily run alongside current tournaments on the same field 

  • Include distances and sight marks relevant to other events 

  • Create a fun and positive tournament experience 

 

Using these criteria, the Canadian T2S 900 Round was developed to be a stepping stone event for archers shooting light bow weight or who are new to outdoor tournaments.? 

 

Round Definition: The Canadian T2S 900 Round consists of 30 arrows shot at each of 35M, 30M and 25M at an 80 cm target face. The new round has been piloted at a small number of clubs and with much success. The Canadian T2S 900 Round is now ready for wider implementation across Canada. For more information, contact the Archery Canada national office.

5. Archery Canada Scoring Template 

 

The Archery Canada Scoring Template has been updated to reflect new Archery Canada / World Archery rounds and other ‘bug’ fixes. The template can be downloaded at the Forms section of the 

Website at: http://www.archerycanada.ca/forms?lang=en . It is in zipped format due to the macros.

6. 2014 Outdoor Mailmatch Program: Officially Underway 

 

2014 marks the second year of the Outdoor Mailmatch Program. The 2014 version officially began June 24th and will run until September 30th.  

 

The Outdoor Mailmatch is yet another way for archers from across the country to come together in competition without the need for travel beyond your home Club. The Outdoor Mailmatch is an excellent opportunity for the archer who cannot get to any of the larger tournaments during the summer months but still wants to test his/her skills against competitors from across the country.  It also gives the archer an idea as to how other archers are shooting by comparison.  This competition also provides a great practice format for tournaments but under less stressful conditions. 

 

Competitors may shoot a maximum of one World Archery 720 Round (AC 4.5.1.5 to 4.5.1.7 – 72 arrows shot from 70, 60, 50 or 30 meters outdoor dependent on category and division) per week for 18 weeks.? These scores are sent to the Outdoor Mailmatch Coordinator who will send out monthly updates of scores and averages.? At the end of the 18 weeks the six best scores for each individual archer are averaged and medals awarded in two ways: i) under the Archery Canada categories and divisions (Gold, Silver and Bronze); and ii) by the listed Outdoor Mailmatch classifications (only Gold is awarded to the top score in each classification if a Gold has not been awarded in the Archery Canada Category and divisions).? 

 

If you wish to join the Outdoor Mailmatch contact your Club President or Secretary.  If they don’t have the information, please contact Darcy Dean, Archery Canada’s Outdoor Mailmatch Coordinator at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
