Representing the county
The YAA is looking to send eight teams (one each lady/gent, barebow, compound, recurve and longbow) to the National County Team Tournament 2019, which will take place on the 29th and 30th of June at Lilleshall.
To be considered for the team, please submit your three best senior distance scores on the form:
Application form for National Midsummer Team Tournament 2019 (DOCX)
This year we will accept WA720 rounds alongside the 12 dozen rounds. At least one score must be from 2019 and one must be a 12 dozen round (they do not have to be the same score). All three handicaps from these scores will be added together as in previous years and the lowest total handicaps will be selected for the teams. There will be a team practice held at Barnsley AC 26th May. It has been placed here to prevent any clashes with competitions which we know are happening in June. We would encourage all potential team members to attend the practice so that they can experience team head-to-heads and meet other prospective members of the team.
The closing date for score submission is midnight on the 2nd of June 2019.

The YAA has researched its obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act and considered its responsibilites to disabled and able-bodied archers. The frequent difficulty in obtaining volunteers for work parties has been factored into the considerations. The following policies have been adopted:
For indoor competitions organised by the YAA, the disabled archer will be required to vacate the shooting line after shooting their arrows. If the disabled archer requires assistance in collecting and scoring their arrows this will be permitted, but it is up to the archer to arrange this assistance themselves.
For outdoor competitions organised by the YAA, if the Organiser is notified that the disabled archer requires to stay on the shooting line after shooting their arrows, this will be arranged by only allocating 3 archers to that particular target. If the disabled archer requires assistance in collecting and scoring their arrows this will be permitted, but it is up to the archer to arrange this assistance themselves.
