Target and Clout Records

FINAL ADJUSTMENTS TO TABLES: Council agreed to hold the recompiled Target and Clout Records open for valid historic claims while County Records Officers checked their tables against the new lists, which showed that a number of records that were in the 2012 revision had been shot at Club Target Days and not Tournaments or Matches. Some Counties didn't respond so there are still doubts whether some other scores were shot on Club Target Days.

The deadline for checking these records and for submitting valid scores to overwrite the Target Day Scores is extended to 30th April 2019. Please send your claim to the SCAS Target Records Officer together with evidence that the achievement met the required conditions for a new record.

The recompiled Records can be read by clicking on the links below. Recent ratified claims are added from time to time. Records which have been incorporated since the 2012 compilation are displayed in RED. Records known to have been shot on Club Target Days are in PURPLE.

SCAS LONGBOW Records (Dec2018)
SCAS BAREBOW Records (Dec2018)
SCAS RECURVE Records (Dec2018)
SCAS COMPOUND Records (Dec2018)

If you wish to claim a score that is larger than the record listed in the Records, please send your claim to the SCAS Target Records Officer together with evidence that the achievement met the required conditions for a new record using one of the methods below.

Rules and Policies:

SCAS Members:
Records can only be claimed by affiliated SCAS members, either as a direct member, or as an associate through a club/county.
Eligibility of Submissions:
Regional Records may only be claimed for scores shot at Tournaments, or properly organised Matches where at least two opposing teams are taking part and are present on the same field, which in all cases must be organised and controlled in accordance with the Archery GB Rules of Shooting. In particular an appropriate level of judging must have been enforced, and claimants must not have recorded their own scores.
Evidence Requirement:
Claims (whether by post, email, or on line submission form) should be accompanied by suitable independent evidence such as the Tournament Results Sheet, a properly signed and witnessed Score Sheet, or a link to the results on the tournament organisers website or accredited results service website.
Scope of Records:
Records are kept of Female and Male Junior and Senior Archers shooting Recurve (Freestyle), Compound (Unlimited), Recurve Barebow and Longbow styles as defined in the Rules of Shooting.
Ratification Rules:
Records will be recognised for the first archer to achieve an eligible score. To be acceptable, all claims must be at least one point greater than the existing record.
Records will only be ratified for one claimant UNLESS two identical eligible scores are shot on the same day.
Use of Multiple-Face Targets:
There will be no distinction between rounds shot on single-centre faces and on multiple-centre faces.
Subsequent Single Rounds:
Rounds which are not the first round shot on the day will be ratified so long as the circumstances comply with the Rules of Shooting.
Shorter Rounds nested inside Longer Rounds:
The Rules of Shooting permit claims to be made for shorter rounds which make up part of a longer round so long as no record claim is being made for the longer round as a whole for the same day. SCAS will ratify claims which comply with current rules on this issue.

Currently SCAS does not keep Distance Scores for WA / Metric Rounds.
