L&RCAA Selection Criteria

Welcome to the County Team Selection Page. On this page you will find steps for selection into the County Team.

All archers affiliated through L&RCAA are eligible to represent the county Archers who are affiliated to Archery GB directly must be affiliated to the county and region. There are three selection shoots at the beginning of each outdoor season. For 2017 these are:

  • Kirby Muxloe AC, WA1440 - 23rd April (this shoot will also be used as selection for archers wishing to represent L&RCAA at the National Inter-counties Team Tournament in June)
  • Bowmen of Glen AS, WA1440 - 14th May
  • Leicester Ancient Order of Foresters AC, York/Hereford - 21st May

Senior and Junior archers who wish to be considered for the first county match must shoot two of the three selection shoots. The rankings from the selection shoots are available in this PDF

Archers who attained the status of Grand Master Bowmen (GMB) in the last outdoor season will automatically be selected for the first county match.If this is the case, please let the Team Captain know you are GMB.

L&RCAA archers are ranked according to their position in the selection shoots after visitor scores have been taken out. 1 point for first place, 2 points for second place, 3 for third and so on. The best two scores are then totalled and the archers with the lowest number of points are selected for the first county shoot.

For the remaining county matches and Inter-Counties Match, the selection process is widened to include archers who did not shoot the initial selection shoots.  Selection is then based on scores achieved in competitive 12 dozen rounds at an open competition shot under GNAS/FITA rules (under special circumstances a club shoot may be taken into consideration). The archer must submit his/her score to the Team Captain (captain@lrcaa.org) who will bring this to the attention of the selection committee, which for 2017 is:

  • The County Chairman - Eddie Pemberton
  • The County Team Captain - Caroline Cater
  • The County Records Officer - Carol Smith

Please take note that the Team Captain will keep a record of all archers’ scores received for the outdoor season, but the responsibility is YOURS, the archer, to make sure that the Team Captain gets them.
