Youth Archery

Archery is a great way to meet new people!
There are two sessions held on Saturday mornings just for our club's youth members. Participants need to book each week before they shoot.

Archers for the first session should arrive at 8am for an 8.30am-10am shoot. Archers for the second session should arrive at 10am for a 10.30am-midday shoot. Please ensure you arrive in time to set up your equipment! We don't currently run a holiday club, although it is under future consideration.
Youth archers can come to the Saturday and Sunday afternoons shoots to practice different distances and gain more experience, including club Achievement rounds.

Arrival time is 1pm and the shoot lasts from 1.30pm until sometime between 2.30pm and 4pm, depending on the type of round they choose to shoot.

Please keep an eye on the Shooting calendar for an idea of distances and times to shoot.
The youth age group you are in is determined by the age you are on 1st January of that year. Youth shooting members then stay in that age group for the entire year and shoot distances appropriate to their age group. There are five age groups for our junior shooting members:

Kiwi (under 10)
Cub (under 13)
Intermediate (under 15)
Cadet (under 17)
Junior (under 20)


Auckland Archery Club provides our archers the opportunity to learn and develop their shooting skills.

The Auckland College Sport Archery league is open to archers of all levels of ability who are at secondary school and provides an opportunity to represent your school at archery. Running in term 1 each year at AAC, it comprises both an individual competition and a team competition; teams of 4 for recurve and teams of 2 for compound.

At the end of term 1, there is also the Auckland College Sport Matchplay competition. This is a great way to get start to get some tournament experience and to represent your school. We encourage all archers from years 9 – 13 to get involved with these events.

To enter, get in touch with you school sports department.
