June Update 2015


As the team at ANSW work through the process of improving ANSW governance framework it’s critical that clubs and individual voices are heard. While I continue to visit clubs and talk to people, please feel free to voice your views on anything ANSW.

It is with much sadness that I share the resignation of Andrew Crampton from the ANSW Committee. Andrew has made a fantastic contribution to the sport and he will be missed on the committee. I would like to thank Andrew for his service. Andrew will continue to support the Sport as a Judge and parent. 

The Constitutional review is nearing its end after 9 months of work from ANSW and Clubs, the Special General meeting to vote on the proposed constitution is being held on the 1st August before this years AGM.

To increase feedback ANSW is looking for feedback directly from individual archers about how the voting should work. Please take the time to complete an online poll to have your say.  More information about the proposed changess to the consititution can be found HERE

Open Team Selection - Policy Review  

With the review of the Youth team selection policy almost complete ANSW is calling for expressions of interest in review of the Open team selection policy. Please send any submissions to: coaching@archerynsw.org.au 


This remains a problem for ANSW and its member clubs. ANSW strongly urge competitive archers to talk to your clubs about the impact a lack of judges will have on this sport medium to long term. Without judges there are no competitions? Clubs with competitive archers should look to be able to supply a Judge for competitions. 

Please register your interest to be a judge here. When we have 4 people ready we will run the course.
