State Teams

Archery Victoria strives to nominate and enter teams into all Archery Australia Championships where a Regional Governing Body team competition is held. These events are broken down into the National Championships, the National Youth Championships, and the National Indoor Championships.

We strive to enter a team that will have the best chance of winning each of these competitions, and to select the members of each team based upon a clear process that is not based on subjective judgement.

At all times Archery Victoria will provide an environment designed to encourage and support archers who participate in competitive archery.

Where available Archery Victoria will appoint Honorary State Teams to selected National Championships.
