Archery Rounds and Games

Use the navigation bar below to get information on the different archery rounds offered to archers at clubs in the CAA. Please take the time to review these archery rounds as they are often used to develop an archers strength, confidence and skill, both mentally and physically.

Please review the basic safety and line courtesy section below so that we can all enjoy a safe and pleasant archery experience each time we go afield. 

SAFETY AND LINE COURTESY

OUTDOORS: Walk in the direction of the field course at all times, NEVER walk backward on a field course. If you must get off the range, walk in the normal direction of the target layout. If you come upon others, ask to walk through. All shooters must stand behind the shooting stake at each target. All groups will have a minimum of three shooters (two are allowed at most shoots). All arrows must be kept aimed towards the butts. No horseplay is allowed. No alcohol (or drugs) is permitted. No killing (or shooting at) any wildlife. No loud talking. Be careful when stepping off the shooting line as not to bump a fellow shooter at full draw. No discussion of distances while shooting a 3-D round. Groups will proceed from one target to the next (taking all equipment with you). On walk-up targets - the entire party will approach the next stake together. Always be careful when pulling arrows from the targets. No broad heads are allowed on the range. Always leave one person in front of a target when others are looking for arrows.

            If you unsure if a target is safe to shoot at …yell ‘TIMBER’ before shooing, if no one answers, it is clear to shoot.

F DO NOT BE A LITTERBUG E

REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR TRASH WITH YOU

 

INDOORS: There will be no shooting if anyone is down range. All shooters must stand at the same shooting line. All arrows must be aimed down range and only at the target butts. All bows must be placed on a rack or bow holder peg before proceeding toward targets. No loud talking. No horseplay allowed. No alcohol or drugs permitted. Be careful when stepping off the shooting line as not to bump a fellow shooter at full draw. Always be careful when pulling arrows from the targets. No broad heads are allowed on the range. The entire shooting line approaches the targets together for scoring.

Do not touch any arrow until all arrows are scored. All arrows are scored before they are pulled.  One person will call arrow scores and two persons will keep score. 

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR ARCHERS

  1. Let us keep ourselves as our arrows – straight.
  2. Let us not be too proud to bend backward as our bow – to be friendly.
  3. Let us adjust our sights so that our aims will be for good.
  4. Let us hold to good sportsmanship.
  5. Let us release our arrows and thoughts without fault.
  6. Let us follow through all ideas for the advancement of archery.
  7. Let us be considerate to others as we are to our tackle.
  8. Let us nock our arrows – not others.
  9. Let us remember, unkind words pierce deeper than an arrow shot from the most powerful bow.
  10. Let us include in our tackle box smiles, kindness, friendliness, wit and love.
