Junior Winter League Rules

All juniors shooting in league matches will be entered into both the winter 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 Portsmouth.
  2. The round will be shot under ArcheryGB rules.
  3. Teams will consist of any combination of archers for recurve, compound, longbow, and barebow
    • If longbow archers shoot, then the score will have a handicap of 40% added to each longbow score used.
    • If barebow archers shoot, then the score will have a handicap of 25% added to each barebow used.Note if barebow and longbow archers score over 500 points, adjustments will be made.
    • If compound archers shoot, then the score will have a handicap of 15% deducted from the compound score used. Note adjustment is only applied if the compound archer shoots over 500 points.
    • Adjustments will not be made if the resulting score is over 600 points. Please apply rounding laws when working out handicap scores in the case of decimals.  E.g. Equal and above 5, round up; below 5, round down.
  4. All matches are postal on a month by month fixture list provided by the HAA Leagues Organiser.
  5. The home team is detailed first in the fixture.  It is each club's responsibility to submit the scores for their juniors each month.
  6. Results will be awarded for the top 3 juniors scoring after alterations for bow style have been made.  Please make the adjustment in accordance to normal rounding rules before submitting scores to the HAA Leagues Officer.
  7. ALL SCORES MUST BE COUNTED for qualifying archers/numbers as rule 6 above.  All scores must be submitted for individual league tables.
  8. If the opposition fail to raise a Junior team, the result will be a win to the team participating.
  9. Points are awarded to teams as follows:
    1. A win carries 10 points, with the losing 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.
    2. Win = 10 points
    3. Draw = 6 points
    4. Loss = 1 point, plus 1 point for each archer up to 3 points.
  10. Results are to reach the organiser by the 7th day of the month following the fixture.  Failure to submit the result by this date will result in the match being awarded to the opposing team.
  11. 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.
  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 within the same league season.
  17. 18 year-olds, and those juniors turning 18 in the course of the league, will shoot as Seniors. (Based on modified ArcheryGB guidelines.)
  18. Archers may compete in the Senior Frostbite League.
  19. The Organiser's decision is final.
