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.

  1.  The round will be a Short Metric; distance to be relevant to the juniors age on the day of the
    match
  2. The round will be shot under G.N.A.S rules.
  3. Teams will consist of any number of archers for recurve, compound, longbow and barebow.
    • If longbows or barebows score then they automatically have a plus handicap of 20% added
    to each longbow/barebow score used.
    • If compound archers shoot then the score for each compound will be deducted 10% from
    the compound score used.
    Although not totally fair it does give all archers irrespective of bow style the chance to compete
    equally.
  4. All matches are on the day matches, shot alongside the adult league match against the same
    team
  5. The home team is detailed first in the fixture. It is their responsibility to submit the match results
    and all junior scores to the league organiser
  6. Results will be awarded for the top 3 juniors scoring after alterations for bow style have been
    made. If less than 3 in a team then it will be the number who do turn up versus the top 3 of the
    other team. If less than 3 turn up for both teams then it will be the maximum number per team
    up to 3
  7. ALL SCORES MUST BE COUNTED for qualifying archers/numbers as rule 6 above. All scores
    must be submitted for individual league tables
  8. Match winners will be on the day and at the end of the season we will also award individual
    medals to juniors in age groups
  9. If the opposition fail to raise a Junior team, the win will be given to the team present on the day
  10. Points are awarded to teams as follows:
    A win carries 10 points, with the loosing team getting bonus points for each archer (up to a
    maximum of 3). This may encourage them to shoot even if they believe they are unable to
    win.
    Win = 10 points
    Draw = 6 points
    Loose = 1 point for each archer up to 3 points.
    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
  11. Results are to reach the organiser by the 7th day of the month following the match. Failure to
    submit the result by this date will result in the match being awarded to the away team
  12. Archers can only shoot for the club that they have nominated through ArcheryGB
  13. The Hertfordshire Archery Association must be the Archer’s first named county
  14. If a Hertfordshire Archer changes clubs within the county after the start of the league season
    they will not be able to compete for their new club for the duration of the current season
  15. Only one score per archer will be accepted
  16. Archers may only compete as a Junior or a Senior, not as both
  17. The HAA County Junior Representative’s decision is final
