JUNIOR ARCHERY

Juniors are all archers who are under 20 years of age on 31 December of each year.

It is a great starting place for new archers as we shoot from shorter distances and have monthly “postal shoots” which are submitted to Archery NZ. The results are published on the NZ Archery website so you can see how you are doing against others in your age group. Postal Shoots are shot at various ranges and are 6 ends of 6 arrows.

JAMA is the Junior division of Archery NZ. They run the monthly postal shoots and an annual outdoor tournament as well as an annual indoor tournament. These tournaments are run under WA (World Archery) conditions and rules. There is also a Trans Tasman competition and a Junior World Championship, both held every two years.

2017 Age groups are:

KIWI U10 Born 2007 or after
CUB U12 Born 2004, 2005 or 2006
INTERMEDIATE U14 Born 2002 or 2003
CADET U17 Born 2000 or 2001
JUNIOR U20 Born 1997, 1998 or 1999

 

We currently have at least two juniors in each age group, with most in the Cub and Intermediate age groups.

Junior Club Captain is also the junior representative on the club committee.
