Failure to register all persons shooting or engaged in approved Club activities at a Club venue or failure to comply with Temporary Membership rules may void the policy.
The Archery Australia Public Liability also covers Clubs conducting archery activities on venues away from the registered Club venue.
Any activity away from the registered Club venue must be conducted to Archery Australia Shooting and Safety rules, the Club should undertake a Risk Analysis of the venue and activity. The Club must advise Archery Australia of the activity and the venue arrangements so this information can be kept on file and added to the Club venues list.
The policy does not cover members if they are shooting in their backyard or on a venue not registered with Archery Australia or engaged in an activity not approved by the Club or registered with Archery Australia.
To ensure compliance and coverage by the Public Liability Policy, Clubs MUST ensure all persons shooting or undertaking instruction or coaching on their venue are currently financial registered affiliates (members) of Archery Australia or as a Temporary Member and they comply with the Archery Australia Constitution, Rules, Policies and Procedures.
