State Rankings

In line with Archery Australia policy State rankings are now to be derived from the National rankings as shown on Archers Diary.

To find the State Rankings - from the National Ranking page select "Archery Victoria" from the RGB pull down and this will provide you with Victoria specific rankings.

You can then select the round types (outdoor, Indoor, Field, Clout) and also filter down to sex, bow type and age group.

Beyond the State level you can also select your specific Club to see where you rank within your club.

** NOTE **  State Rankings (SR) are a seperate entity to the State Team Rankings (STR) used to decide upon the selection of representative State Team members. 

Team Members are selected upon the selection rules as stated in the State Team Guidelines policy document and the associated addendum  - 0491  State Team Guidelines 



Ratings are intended to reflect current performance, not personal best scores, so the calculation uses degrading scoring. This means that older scores are worth slightly less than recent scores. So an archer can’t shoot a high score then stop shooting for a year and expect to be still ranked highly.

The scores are made up from the highest degraded rating from AA or WA registered events.

Ratings are degraded by 2 points per month (30.4 days). (Clout scores are degraded by 5 points per 30.4 days)

These rankings will be used to select Victorian State Teams for all National Championships where a Registered Governing Body (RGB) team competition exists. They can also be used just to compare your performance against other archers within your Division across the different competition disciplines.

The State Team Selection Policy can be downloaded at:   State Team Guidelines  0491
