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.

Annual returns 2016-17

Clubs will now be receiving the annual subscription returns paperwork from Archery GB. There have been several changes from previous years, and several factors are making the return quite complex this time. In particular, there is a mismatch between the Archery GB fee structure and those of the YAA and NCAS. To reduce the likelihood of mistakes and rework, we encourage members responsible for the subscription returns to read our guidance carefully:
