ANSW Squad & Team Guidelines

State Youth Team Selection 2018
It is Archery NSW aim to provide the strongest possible Youth Team to compete in the 2018 National Youth Archery Championships. The following process will ensure those seeking team selection are committed to this cause whilst supporting ANSW through participation at State events and improving their personal performance through coaching at ANSW Development Days, including implementing instruction/direction given by the Regional and State coaches.
Archers accepting their selection in the team will be required to stay “in camp” for the duration of the 2018 National Youth Archery Championships. This will allow those seeking higher honours to understand through a State Team experience what is required by all to function well in a team environment.

The Selection Process
Archers will accumulate points throughout the year by shooting any of the “recognised events” (see Appendix A). The scores will be added together to give the archers their final points tally. This tally will have additions applied as below. 
It should be noted that your best score only for each event during the qualifying period will be added to the archers total score, the scores will be calculated from the start of the 2017 National Youth Archery Championships (NYAC), provided the archer registers by the required date below - all scores will be updated by the Youth Coordinator and standings published on ANSW website monthly.
Scores for all team applicants will be included from the start of the 2017 Youth Nationals up until, and including, the last weekend in February 2018
2017 Team members (incumbents) will automatically be placed on the team applicant list, all other interested archers must express their interest by emailing the Youth Co-ordinator by 31/10/17.

This email should include: 

• Bow Type with which the applicant wishes to shoot at NYAC 2018 

• Current age division

• Date of Birth

• An alternative email address

• A mobile number – including parent or guardian if they are under the age of 18
The above should be sent to the following  youthcoordinator@archerynsw.org.au
Team applicants are expected to shoot ALL Archery NSW State Events (see Appendix A) to give them the best opportunity of team selection.
 
Archers Changing Age Divisions
Archers whose age division changes on the 1st January 2018 MUST submit Field, 720 and FITA 1440 Rounds for the distances they will shoot at the 2018 Youth Nationals. However, bonus points achieved at the NSW State events for their correct distance for 2017 will be applied, i.e. Archers should compete with their peers in the correct age division at NSW State events. 
  
ANSW Development Days
To achieve the best chance of team selection archers are strongly encouraged to attend all NSW Development days – recognition of attendance will be reflected by an additional 25 points added for each Development Day attended. 
Where an archer is unavailable to attend a DD due to AA High Performance commitments 25 points will be applied to the absent archer. 
The Development day bonus points will only apply to DD’s after the publishing of this selection process on the NSW website. 
  
ANSW Tournaments
Scores shot at NSW State Events (see Appendix A) will receive an added weighting of 25% to the score achieved - See note below re the NSW Metropolitan. 
 
Shooting Events Outside of the Correct Age Group:
Where an archer shoots an event outside of their correct age group (to be shot at the 2018 NYAC) the scores will be adjusted via the AA Rating system to match the correct round for the archers age. This ONLY relates to distances/rounds shot that are for an older age group E.G. Intermediate archer shooting a Cadet round. The adjustment of scores will not be made for distances/rounds that are from a younger age group/distance.

Team Selection:
At the completion of the selection period the top 10 Recurve archers along with the top 10 Compound archers, based on the above format, will be selected in the State Team (nongender specific) and submitted to the ANSW COM for ratification. 
Where there is an unlikely tie for the 10th position between two or more archers the decision on the selection of the final archer will be made in consultation between the NSW Youth Coordinator and the NSW Coaching Coordinator and announced accordingly.
 
Notes:  There are no bonus points for the NSW Metropolitan event as this event is not designed for cub and intermediate archers. 
No bonus points will be on offer for equivalent State run events shot interstate and sanctioned by another RGB
