Tertiary League

For the first time ever, the Archery NZ Tertiary League is being held across Aotearoa in 2024!

There are four postal shoots throughout the year, with one being held per 'term' (see term dates below). The round may be shot as many times as desired during the allotted time frame, and the highest score per archer shall be submitted by the indicated date.

The purpose of this event is to build on from the schools programs throughout the country, and create a competition that moves archers from the Youth format to the Adult format. The program is designed to give competent archers a full-distance league to compete in, whilst also allowing newer archers to work towards their outdoor tournament distances. Current students of any New Zealand tertiary institute may compete, in the divisions of Novice (up to one year of archery), Development (two to three years of archery experience) and Open.

Please download and read the Rules as well as the Shooting Schedule to know what and when you can shoot.
