League Matches

This year we have entered four teams for the summer league – Recurve, Compound, Barebow and a Junior team.  ​​

New club members may not be aware that we compete in the Hertfordshire Winter and Summer Leagues. The Summer League is a Short Metric round (3 dozen at 50 meters & 3 dozen at 30 meters) both shot on an 80 cm target face. Juniors shoot different distances according to their age.
Recurve archers and junior archers of all bow types compete in home or away matches. The five highest scoring recurve archers on the day are added together to give the team’s total score and the top three junior scores are handled similarly. We would encourage all archers, of all abilities, to take part. 

These league matches are a great way to visit other clubs and meet other archers, not to mention the post-match refreshments served by the home team while the results are being calculated!  Stortford are renowned for their post-match refreshments!
Barebow and Compound archers compete in a postal league.  This is because many clubs do not have sufficient space to accommodate all bow types, so these archers shoot their rounds at their home club, preferably on the same day as the recurve match   The highest scores for each bow type are submitted by post. 
Senior Improvement Scheme
The Club is now running a senior improvement scheme, please click on the club logo to access the scheme. It is reccomended that you follow the scheme to help you to progress through the outdoor distances. To acheive a badge you need to shoot 3 qualifying scores and identify these to the records officer on your score sheet. If you have any questions please speak to Stuart or Rachel.

Portsmouth Badge Scheme
The Club is running the Portsmouth Badge Scheme over the winter.  This is a club only scheme run for the all members over the winter.  It is similar to the county junior scheme, the scores you need to obtain for the verious badges are visible by clicking on the logo to the left. ​​

You need to claim your badges from Stuart Barber by emailing him this form to records@stortfordarchers.org.uk. ​

Shooting for County
Stortford Archery Club now has many juniors on the county team. If you wish to be considered to shoot for the County, but are not aware of the procedure, this is how it works.  Go to the Herts Archery Association (HAA) web site and complete the Declaration Form Section under Documents or click on the Herts County Logo to the left. ​​​

When you score a round, at the club or in competition, submit the score on the site or by clicking sumbit to the left.

Sit back and wait to be called up – or better still do some bow drills with a stretch band. 

If you need help with this, Stuart is both County Chairman and a selector. Rachel will also be able to guide you through this process. Whilst this will not give you any advantage, they are well placed to guide you through the process.

All scores are needed as the county is now also part of a SCAS winter league. To be considered for this please submit your scores before the 21st of each month.
