Archery’s high performance program is rated as on track, having improved from progressing in 2014. The men’s team qualified for the 2016 Olympic Games following a quarter-final performance at the 2015 world championships. Scores of key athletes have been trending positively in domestic and international competition environments.

The sport’s high performance manager and head coach, with the performance support team at the Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) and AIS, have worked on quality control with the current squad and on strategies to help archery deliver sustainable elite performances.

A new ‘Archery Diary’ and the implementation of the Athlete Management System (AMS) enhance the quality of data available to track athletes’ performance, identify talent and inform future decisions. A key deliverable for Archery Australia is the introduction of development programs to improve connections between elite and club programs, and supplement the coach support provided by the head coach.


When benchmarked against Australia’s Winning Edge sports, Archery Australia has some areas below the standard. Archery has developed a fully integrated national membership database and is working towards meeting the ASC’s Mandatory Sports Governance Principles (MSGP).
