Note 1: – Clubs and RGBs may develop younger or older age divisions to cater for their own needs. The age divisions above are the only age divisions recognised for Archery Australia Tournaments, National Records and National and Youth National Championships.

Note 2: – The term “Junior” is a World Archery term. In Australia it has been decided to call this classification “20 and under”. It is felt the term “Junior” may be confusing, as it is a general term for people who are not yet seniors (adults).
