Archery in Yorkshire
The purpose of the Yorkshire Archery Association is to promote and support the sport of archery in Yorkshire.
The YAA is the county affiliation body for clubs in Yorkshire.
The YAA represents Yorkshire's archers at the regional and national levels.
The YAA is affiliated to the Northern Counties Archery Society and the Grand National Archery Society (Archery GB).
The YAA has the largest number of affiliated clubs of any English county organisation.
The YAA organises several tournaments each year including the indoor and outdoor county championships.
The YAA selects and manages the Yorkshire county teams.
The YAA maintains records of the highest scores achieved in the various disciplines of archery practised in the county.
The YAA presents awards in recognition of service to archers and clubs in Yorkshire.
Nominations are now being invited for the award of the Yorkshire Sword.
The Yorkshire Sword is awarded annually to the YAA-affiliated archer who, in the opinion of the Clubs and Committee Members of the Association, has made the greatest service to archery in Yorkshire in the course of a specific year - 2018 in this case.
Please consider making a nomination for service performed during 2018.
All nominations must include a citation and must be received in writing by the County Secretary no later than the 31st of December 2018.
Arrowhawks Archery Academy has been launched to provide national talent development and academy programmes to Yorkshire
