Archery involves a fascinating group of sports for members of all ages. The fundamentals are simple. The requirements are few. A new archer can be shooting fairly well within a short time, if he or she has the benefit of a planned approach to developing the basics of form.

4-H Alberta – 4-H Archery Mailmatch Competition

What is the 4-H Mailmatch?

Indoor Mailmatch is a Provincial Competition shot in the comfort of your own club! Due to the vast geography of our province it can be difficult to attend a Provincial archery competition, but the desire to see where you stand against other 4-H’ers is still there. Mailmatch allows for this to happen without having to travel further than your local club. Each month an archer can submit one score and the highest of the four scores shot throughout the designated time period will be used to determine your final placing.

Each scoring month runs from the 1st to the last day. All results will be sent out by e-mail each month.
