Squad Training

Term 1 squad training has been a huge success with all archers notably improving their skill levels and identifying areas they need to work on. Congratulations to Greg on a job well done for term 1.

Term 1 training concludes this Sunday starting up again two weeks later with the commencement of Term 2 Squad Training. Greg will return in Term 2 to continue his great work.

End of Term 1 Competition Day

In conclusion to term 1 training we will be holding a tournament for all archers on Sunday 15 April.

This will be a formal tournament to showcase archers improvements and introduce our newest archers to the tournament environment and rules.

Archers will be broken into three genderless categories, Under 12’s (10m), Under 18’s(30m) and Over 18’s(40m). Three Gold silver and Bronze awards will be made in each category.

$25 entry fee. Registrations are mandatory and entry can be made at


Term 1 Tournament results

Early in Term 1 three archers attended the Junior Challenge at Coast Archers at Erina. Congratulations to Julia Johnston, Sofia de Boos-Smith and Amelie O’Connor for gaining medals in their respective category. Full results can be viewed at


More success was had at the Golden Gong Tournament in Wollongong several weeks ago. Awards went to Tim Barret, Sofia de Boos-Smith, Grace Leong, Eric Neuman, Jordan Vouroudis and Amelie O’Connor. Fantastic results with all archers from Bondi securing a medal. Full results can be viewed at

Arrows and arrow making seminar

Several weeks ago an arrow and arrow making seminar was held. A lot of information was presented, I hope not too much as to confuse everyone. The key point here is “any arrow just won’t do”. If you want to shoot better having the correct arrows can make a huge difference (just ask Sofia).

Term 2 Squad Training Registrations

Squad Training will return on 29 April. Make sure you register your interest early as we will need to allocate squads and Greg’s time well in advance. To register your interest please email simon@sydneyarchery.com.au

Future events

Next term will see a second seminar focussing on equipment maintenance. All squad members are encouraged to attend this seminar (date to be determined). All club members are also welcome to attend.

The National Indoor Championships will be held in Sydney on 21 & 22 July 2018. Indoor archery is an intensely competitive environment. All archers shoot 18m at a small 40cm target face. Every Friday night, we have secured an indoor venue for practice from 6pm in lead up to the event. Registrations essential at http://www.trybooking.com/janu

Last year archers from Bondi headed to Illawarra archers in August for their annual field archery competition. As this was new to almost all archers, we ran field archery education days several weeks prior to the event. We are doing something similar this year with training days.

In preparation to the South Coast Field and National Indoor Championships we will also be conducting some July school holiday intensive programs specifically for those wishing to enter. Stay tuned for more details.
