Etiquette

Etiquette is an important part of archery; it is the unwritten rules which make the sport what it is. Etiquette is particularly important when shooting away from the club, at a competition or another club’s club day, and failure to adhere to it reflects on Long Mynd. Most complaints at competitions are related to etiquette.


A Good Archer

  • Does not talk in a loud voice whilst others are shooting.
  • Does not talk to another competitor who obviously prefers to be silent
  • Does not make any exclamation on the shooting line which may disconcert a neighbour in the act of shooting.
  • Does not go behind the target to retrieve his/her arrows before his/her score has been recorded.
  • Does not walk up and down the shooting line comparing scores
  • Does not touch anyone else’s equipment without permission.
  • Does not leave litter
  • When calling scores does so in groups of three (e.g. 775{pause}553)
  • If he/she breaks another’s arrow through his/her own carelessness pays for it on the spot.
  • Thanks the Target Captain at the end of each round for work on his/her behalf.

Code of conduct - Adult Archers

In addition to the etiquette, Archery GB have issued the following Code Of Conduct;

Outdoor Rounds

Outdoor rounds are shot with Metric scoring and a single round,normally involves shooting multiple distances,(the exception being 70m/50m, and Olympic Round).The furthest distances are shot first then the bosses are moved closer to shoot the shorter distances. Archers get timed sighter’s at the furthest distance and the rounds are shot in 6 arrow ends on 122cm and/or 80cm faces.
