OAA Target Championships

Target archers shoot indoors or across a field, with everyone in each equipment category and/or age group shooting the same distance. Targets are a five-colour bulls-eye measuring 80 centimetres or 122 centimetres, which are based on age and equipment style. Modern recurve bows “the type used in the Olympic Games“ and compound bows are the most popular equipment options in target archery. The Ontario Target Championships is registered with both Archery Canada and World Archery allowing for National and International Records to be attained. Scores from this events also count towards National Ranking.
