Archery Australia Update – COVID-19:

Archery Australia would like to provide an update below in relation to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

All Organised Sporting Events and Activities to Cease:  

With the updated Government Guidelines around COVID-19 announced last night (Click Here), the Australian Federal Government has advised that from midnight tonight (25th March 2020) all organised sporting events and social sporting activities must cease, including all forms of social archery activities.

Australian Health Protection Principles Committee (AHHPC) further recommends closing all organised sporting events, including outdoor sport and swimming pools.  

Archery Australia also recommends that if an Archery Club cannot guarantee they can comply with these guidelines, they should cease all operations for the foreseeable future.

Please note, that insurance for Archery Clubs cannot be guaranteed if the club fails to comply with both the latest State and Federal Government Guidelines surrounding COVID-19.

The restrictions on activities and guidelines are constantly changing and we are working closely with each RGB on this and a number of other issues and we will continue to keep you updated with any changes that arise.
