County team selection process

To be eligible to shoot for Nottinghamshire, archers must be affiliated to Nottinghamshire Archery Society.

To shoot for Nottinghamshire at an EMAS inter-county shoot, archers must also be affiliated to EMAS.

Ranking points will be awarded to individuals dependant on the position gained in each qualifying shoot (above), with the highest position scoring 1 and the second highest position scoring 2 etc. and who have successfully achieved the minimum scores required (see below).

There will be 2 squads, one for the WA720 rounds, one for the long distance rounds WA1440/York (Hereford).

To be able to shoot in a WA720 round, you must shoot two of the WA720 selection round (Belvoir, Wilford, Sherwood).  Your ranking from these rounds will be taken into account.

To be able to shoot in a York (Hereford) / WA1440, you must shoot two of the full distance rounds (County Championships or Welbeck) and your rankings from these rounds will be taken into account.

Where a tie in ranking points occurs, the scores from the Nottinghamshire County Championship (outdoor) will be used to decide who makes the team.

Anyone wishing to qualify for the team who cannot attend the qualifying shoots due to clashes with National Series Shoots, Masters or if they are selected to shoot for their Nation/Country/Invictus Games that occur on the same day as our shoots, can with prior approval (via Email) from the County Team Manager, may submit a qualifying score sheet from the shoot attended and this will be considered by the selection committee in lieu of the qualifying shoot.

The county team pool will be announced a week after the final qualifying round. The Nottinghamshire County Archery Squad, from which the County team will be selected, will be made up of those archers who have achieved the minimum qualifying scores, and provided that the minimum qualifying score criteria have been met could include those individuals identified by the selection committee who qualify by virtue of their performance in competitions elsewhere.

The selection committee will be made up of
County Team Manager
County Chair
County Vice Chair

Juniors wishing to shoot for the senior team must shoot appropriate adult rounds for their gender under the above criteria.

Their scores can be equated to their age equivalent for the junior team selection.

If archers do not meet the minimum scores required, a reduced team for that discipline will be submitted to the relevant shoot.
