The League Format

In 2016 there will be 11 competitions held throughout the year. Eight of those will be field shoots with 8 marked and 8 unmarked targets, three shoots will be 3D shoots on an unmarked course. The individual competition will be based on an archer’s top 4 field scores and top 3D score from the year.  You must submit a minimum of 4 field scores and 1 3D score to be eligible for a medal.

The Competition Format

Each competition will consist of 16 mixed targets. 8 targets will be marked and 8 unmarked. The 3D shoots will be 16 unmarked targets. The day’s competition should take about 4 hours.

We will have 4 pegs out at each competition. Red, Blue and Yellow pegs will be official distances.

Distances are in metres.

Senior and junior beginner archers start on White peg.

Cadet and Youth beginner archers may advance in front of the white peg on longer shots.


When you score over 150 points you must move to the next peg until you reach your official peg.

When you score over 190 points you must move up two pegs until you reach your official peg.

Archers who shot last year will need to start on the same peg and can not move backwards at any stage. If an archer chooses to shoot a lower peg the score will not count towards their league score.

The bow classes will be: Compound, Recurve, Barebow, Instinctive and Longbow.
