3m line - valid arrows

The line 3 metres in front of the shooting line to create greater fairness to athletes in a situation where an arrow drops down from the bow or is miss-shot for some reason.

High Drawing

Judges must be concerned with safety aspects at all times during a competition. If, in the opinion of the Judge, an athlete is using a technique to draw back the string which could allow the arrow, if accidentally released, to fly beyond a safety zone or safety arrangements (overshoot area, net wall etc;), the athlete must be advised to change her/his technique.

12 - Drawing

Drawing a bow or pulling the string back (you don't need pencils for this) uses both arms equally. The bow hand is pushing the bow away as much as the string hand is pulling the string back. It can be compared to stretching a rubber band.

3 meter rule

Three meters in front of where the shooters stand is a line. This line divides the arrows that are considered to have been shot and those that are the result of mis-fire or accident. 

The Match round

First appearing at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 the Match round was seen as a way to make Archery more entertaining to watch. Up until then the double FITA was used which involved shooting two days of 144 arrows each. It is Archery's version of test cricket. 

Indoor Rounds

There are three types of rounds (games) of Archery: 18m, 25m and Match-play from World Archery with variations when playing by Archery Australia rules.

World Archery
