FAQ

Who do I claim an award from?

Classification awards are claimed through your Club. The Club obtains these awards from either the RGB Recorder or direct from the Archery Australia Tournament and Records Committee.

I shoot a Compound Bow - Can I shoot Master Bowman or a higher classification shooting a WA60/900 Round? 

Yes, the guidelines state the round shall include at least 30 arrows at a distance listed below or longer - for example 

COMPOUND

Men, Women, Master, Veteran, 20 and Under, Cadet: 60m -122cm Target Face, or 50m – 80cm Target Face

Intermediate and Cub: 40m -122cm Target Face

As the WA 60/900 Round consists of 30 arrows at each distance and the round includes 60m scores from this round can be used.

What does Schedule 4 mean?

Schedule 4 lists the Rating Levels you need to be shooting to obtain a Classification award in each division.

Schedule 4

For example you are a Male Recurve archer and have shot a score of 631 in a WA 70/720. Using the 72-arrow Rating Table  the score gives you a rating of 90. Looking at Schedule 4, for a Men Recurve a Rating of 90 gives you an eligible score towards Classification of Elite Bronze.

I notice the Ratings Tables start at a Rating of 10; why does it not start any lower? 

Quite simply scores any lower than a Rating of 10 means the person is just out of instruction, Clubs should be using the Ozbow program for these people. 

Are the Classification awards one-off awards or annual awards?

For White, Black, Blue, Red and Gold awards these are a one-off award which people usually only claim once in their life using one type of equipment; but these awards can be claimed again if you change equipment styles - i.e. you started in the sport shooting a Recurve bow and claimed various awards and then changed to Compound; you can then claim theses awards again for Compound.

For Master, Grand Master, Elite Bronze, Elite Silver and Elite Gold these can be claimed annually. Each award is identified with the year in which it was claimed.
