Junior Summer League Rules

All juniors shooting in League matches will be entered into both the summer team league and the individual league. The more you shoot the more chance you have of winning a medal.

All juniors shooting in the league will be issued with a league participation medal at the end of the season.These are made and given out by each club.

  1. The round will be a Short Metric; distance relevant to junior’s age on the day of the match.
  1. The round will be shot under G.N.A.S. rules.
  1. Teams will consist of any number of Archers for recurve, compound, Longbow and Barebow. If longbows score then they automatically have a plus handicap of 40% added to each longbow/ barebow score used. If Compound archers shoot then the score for each compound will be deducted 20% from each compound score used. Although not totally fair it does give all archers irrespective of bow style the chance to compete equally.
