    2011 Canada Winter Games UPDATE
    In February 2011, the top young archers from each province will travel to our province to compete in the 2011 Canada Winter Games.
    The 2011 Canada Winter Games are open to archers who are the age of 21 or younger on January 1, 2011.

    Each province is permitted a Canada Games Archery Team of four archers, 2 male and 2 female, one each in recurve and compound divisions.
    At the 2011 Canada Winter Games there will be two days of Official Practice (Day 2 and Day 3) followed on the third day by Individual and Team Qualifying Rounds.
    The Qualifying Round is 120 arrows: two 18-meter FITA Rounds (60 arrows each, shot in ends of three (3) arrows in two (2) minutes shot over 2 days). At the completion of the qualifying round all athletes are ranked and selected or not for the Individual and/or Team Event(s).

    The fourth and fifth day will consist of the Individual Elimination Round, the top 16 archers of each gender and bow-type are seeded according to their positions as determined by their total scores in the Qualification Round using a standard draw sheet. The archer with the lowest qualifying total would be matched with the archer with the highest point total, etc. (for example, no. 1 ranked archer plays the no. 16 ranked archer; no. 2 plays no.15, etc.) The top 16 individual archers of each of the 2 genders shoot their first match simultaneously. Should there be fewer than 16 individuals per division, byes will be issued in order to complete the event.

    An Elimination match consists of four (4) ends of three (3) arrows shot in two (2) minutes at 18 meters. The two opponents shoot their respective 3 arrows in the same 2-minute time range; they can share the same butt.
    In the Individual Finals Round, in which the top eight archers of each gender and bow type remaining from the Individual Elimination Round shoot a series of individual matches, one at a time. Each match consists of four (4) ends of three (3) arrows, shot in two (2) minutes with archers shooting at the same time, culminating in the Individual Gold Medal match.
    In the Gold Medal Round, the 2 opponents shall alternate shooting one arrow at a time, 30 seconds per arrow; they shoot at their own butt. The match will consist of four (4) ends of three (3) arrows.

    Day 6: Provincial/Territorial Team Event
    For the Provincial/Territorial Team event, one 2-person team is allowed per province/territory in the same type of bow. Each province/territory can have up to 2 teams: Compound and Recurve.

    During any match, two (2) vertical triple faces per team will be used, and one arrow must be shot per “spot”, and each team has its own butt.
    In the Team Elimination Round the top 8 teams of two (2) competitors by bow type will be seeded according to their total scores in the Qualification Round, using a standard draw sheet. The province with the lowest qualifying total would be matched with the province with the highest point total, etc. (i.e., no. 1 ranked team plays the no. 8 ranked team; no. 2 plays no.7, etc.) Should there be fewer than 8 teams per division, byes will be issued in order to complete the event. Matches will be shot simultaneously. Each match consists of four (4) ends of six (6) arrows (3 per archer) shot in two (2) minutes at 18 meters. All matches in the Team Elimination Round are shot simultaneously. The total number of arrows scored per match is 24.

    In the Team Finals Round, in which the top four (4) teams of each division remaining from the Team Elimination Round shoot a series of matches, one at a time. Each match consists of four (4) ends of six (6) arrows (3 per archer) shot in two (2) minutes at 18 meters, culminating in the Team Gold Medal match. The total number of arrows scored per match is 24. Team members shoot individually.

    NOTA: Each Team Nova Scotia Team Archer and/or alternate is responsible for reading and understanding the info in the Archery Technical Package.

    E-mail rickca@ns.sympatico.ca for a complete copy of the Archery Technical Package.

    NOTE: For those preparing upcoming Indoor 18 Meter FITA events.
    Each 18 Meter FITA held in the province should try to incorporate as much of the rounds used at the Canada Winter Games as practical in the coming winter months. These will be implemented in the Canada Games Archery Test event fall qualifiers and the other fall qualifiers.

    The 2011 Canada Winter Games are a 2-week event where archery is held during the second week. We are looking for the best of the best young archers in Nova Scotia to fill these positions.

    NOTE: If you are interested in trying out for one of these 4 positions, please contact us at rickcca@sympatico.ca or lpoehl@hotmail.com and include your full name, preferred email address, gender, date of birth, AANS or FCA membership number, and equipment division.

    Over the next 12 months, we plan to hold 2 training camps in conjunction with the qualifying tournaments during the fall of 2010. During these tournaments we will be practicing the Individual shoot-off and the Team Competitions. By the end of November of 2010 the 4 Team members and 4 alternates of 2011 Nova Scotia Archery Team will be chosen. Hopefully you will be one of those chosen to represent Nova Scotia in this event.

    If you are an archer or are talking to an archer who has not heard about this please share this information. We want to all potential 2011 Canada Games hopefuls on the Archery Core Team.

    For now; Practice,Compete and have fun. Get to as many tournaments as possible to develop endurance and get experience. Send us scores at the e-mail addresses above. Be sure to include the type of tournament at which you shot this score, whether it be an Indoor 25 Meter FITA, an 18 Meter FITA or an outdoor 1440, 1200 etc FITA.
