Training and Courses

Training to be a judge is a very practical affair. It takes place at tournaments from when you are starting out as a Candidate judge and then progresses through conferences and by similar means when you want to progress up the judging pathway.

Re-Accreditation

The judging pathway and re-accreditation system is described in the Judging Handbook, and also in the J10 form. You can find both of those in the Useful Resources for Judges document library, in the Judges Handbook and Forms sections respectively.
In the library, you can also find presentations from conferences which contain helpful advice on keeping your judging skills current. Another part of the Library contains Training and Exam Resources – if you think we have missed something, or you would like to see something added to this part, please email chairman.judges@archerygb.org with details.

Youth Judge Programme

Judging is a great way to be involved in archery. The Youth Judge Programme has been put together to encourage 16-23 year olds have the opportunity to give something back to the sport.

As a new or inexperienced Judge, you will receive an excellent introduction to judging and will equip you with many of the skills and confidence to do so effectively. The programme provides a small bursary (approximately £200) to support the travelling costs of attending tournaments.

To book your place on the Youth Judge Programme:

  • Read the bursary guidance
  • Complete the application form below
  • Book early as places are limited. The closing date is 7 January 2018.

Attendees will need to book accommodation separately (if required).

If you have any questions please email judging@archerygb.org

Candidate Judge Seminar

The next Candidate Judge Seminar will be held on Sunday 21 January 2018.

If you would like to learn how to officiate and are available to attend tournaments, why not train to become a Candidate Judge?

Training is provided by experienced officials who are keen to welcome you into judging. The training is broken down into sections:

  • Gain experience – put your skills into practice straight away! Assist at tournaments and be supported by a local mentor
  • Attend a Candidate Judge Seminar – you will learn the basic skills for officiating during a friendly and interactive weekend workshop
  • When you are ready, take the assessment to formally qualify as a County Judge

To book your place on the Candidate Judge Seminar:

  • Please contact the Judge Liaison Officer (JLO) for your region – they will need to be aware of and endorse your application. Your region may also be able to support the cost of the training
  • Next, complete the application form, available online at Sport:80.
  • Book early as places are limited. The closing date is 23 September
  • If you are aged 16-23 years old you can apply to be part of the Youth Judge Programme – see above for more details.

The cost to attend the Candidate Judge Seminar is just £40. Attendees will need to book accommodation separately (if required).
