2019 Youth Festival - Mixed Team Event
Archery England has now entered WA Junior Teams (one compound and one recurve) for the Youth Festival Mixed Team event.
The team members for WA Junior Recurve are Jacob Reid and Hannah Evans.
The Compound team members are Lewis Haslam and Jenny Bryan.
The rationale behind their selection is explained below.
The Youth Commonwealth Championships has been prepared to reflect the Youth (Olympic and Commonwealth) International Format and the AGB Tournament Organiser introduced the 'Mixed Team event' to be held on the Tuesday of the Youth Festival. Junior mixed teams and cub teams were also possible but it was only the cadet teams to be selected for the (Euronations)Commonwealth Europe Championships
The AGB Tournament Organiser, on seeing the good response for Junior teams (up to the age of 20), has asked if the English Archery Federation could also enter a Junior mixed recurve and a Junior mixed compound team. (The next WA age group up). The Youth Festival will also host a cub pairs team event - Archery England does not select archers for this age category due to the policies on safeguarding.
In the limited time available to select a Junior Mixed Team for both Recurve & Compound the following proposal has been agreed by the Archery England Executive for this year only.
As no WA junior age scores were requested this year and WA recurve Juniors shoot 70m instead of 60m, the selection committee looked at scores submitted last year. There were some recurves who were in the team last year but were too old to apply for the cadet team this year and are now WA Juniors shooting 70m. The selection committee made their selection in line with EAF guidelines.
This selection process was not possible for the Compound team as last year there were no submissions available from compound archers who are now of WA Junior age .The selection committee has proposed that this year's compound cadet reserves be given the opportunity to be in the Junior team. As cadet and Junior compounds both shoot 50m there is not a problem of having to shoot a further distance as was the case with the recurve archers.
