New Membership Form available

Would clubs please replace old membership forms with the updated version with the new postal address for memberships. Some memberships are still being sent to our old Bellingen address, resulting in delays in membership processing. The new address is PO Box 33 Muswellbrook NSW 2333.

Membership Processing Prior to Nationals

The Membership Secretary has advised that membership processing will cease from the afternoon of Wednesday November 4th until after Nationals. Anyone who requires their membership processed prior to Nationals should preferably use the online processing facility & take their emailed receipt as proof of membership renewal or payment. Postal applications may be delayed by Australia Post & may not arrive before this time. This pause in processing is necessary to allow the Nationals Admin team time to prepare for the event. If you have a membership query please contact Vicki on 0429 158 768 . Please be aware that this number is not manned 24/7 & you may need to leave a message so she can call you back.


These guidelines have been in place for many years now with 4 members already winning trips to compete at the IBO World Championships in the past, The guidelines were on the website when they were 1st developed but have not been posted since and the committee has had requests from members asking how it all works.

Changes to Compound Unaided Division - 01/07/15

At the most recent meeting, the Committee discussed the issues & concerns raised by members regarding the fairness of the Compound Unaided division.

After much deliberation the Committee decided to remove Compound Unaided & reinstate the previous divisons of FBU & MCU retrospectively. This means the 2015 results will be reviewed & amended to reflect the changes to all shoots held so far.

The decision has not been made lightly & whilst this type of change mid-year is unprecedented, in order to be fair to all archers this has or will affect, we decided to implement the changes immediately.

Any club or individual with concerns should contact the committee or a committee member. Details for contact are on the Contact page. 

Rules have been updated to reflect this change.

Upcoming Events

November 7-8 Australian Championships- Murrurundi



3DAAA committee is pleased to announce some exciting new sponsorship & incentive programs.

Abbey Archery have confirmed their continued support of our young archers with the promise of two bows - one lucky cub & one lucky youth will again win a new bow, to be presented at the 2015 National Championship Presentation. Every time our cub & youth members shoot, their name is added to the draw. Shooting Nationals will give them two entries with the draw being conducted by random number generator.

We are also proud to announce that Hoyt has joined our sponsors with the offer of a new 2016 Hoyt bow of choice to an adult shooting member. All adults will receive one entry for every sanctioned shoot they attend & shoot, with two entries at Nationals. The winner will be drawn at the annual Presentation following Nationals & will be able to choose their bow from the 2016 line-up.

3DAAA have negotiated a deal with Benson Archery Supplies to supply us with 18-1 targets for our kids. There will be 2 brand new 18-1 targets at each sanctioned event a cub & youth will be drawn at random at each event to give them a new home. To be completely fair, this can only be won once by a cub or youth in the shooting year.

There has also been a program set up for Archery Allience endorsed dealers and some archery manufactures to have their logos on the score sheet for 2015. We developed a 3 level system, Gold, Silver and Bronze, due to the monetary value contributed by the sponsor.Part of this sponsorship will help with providing the end of year trophies and a pull up banners which will be at all sanctioned shoots. So please help support these sponsors who support 3DAAA.

Not to be left out, clubs will also have the opportunity to win their club a standing bear target. At each sanctioned shoot club members should write down the name of their club or, if a member of more than one club, their club of choice. At the annual presentation the club with the highest attendance at sanctioned shoots will win the target, which will be at the venue ready to be transported to its new home.
