Clubs and RGBs may develop younger or older age divisions to cater for their own needs. The age divisions above are the only age divisions recognised for Archery Australia Tournaments, National Records, and at National and Youth National Championships.

The term Junior is a World Archery term, in Australia it has been decided to call this classification 20 and under (as it is felt the term Junior may be confusing).
