Archery Victoria

Is Archery Safe?

Archery – Safer Than All Ball Sports Combined 

A study in 2008 by Sports Medicine Australia found that 24% of parents do not allow their children to play sport for fear they will get hurt or injured. 
From 8 to 80 years of age, archery is one of the safest sports you can do. In fact, Archery is safer than all ball sports combined.

All our Instructors are fully trained in the skills of archery through programs approved by the Australian Sports Commission, and all our Instructors have the Working With Children Check (WWCC).

Archery – The Family Sport

Archery is one of only two sports that parents and children can compete directly with each other, and is one of the best sports for engaging persons with a disability, and for the disadvantaged persons of our community. 

Archery has one of the highest family memberships of any sport.

We are grateful to the Organisations below for their ongoing support of Archery in Victoria.
