COVID19 Update: Return to Sport

Updated June 2, 2020
The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Archery Manitoba.
Archery Manitoba, in partnership with Sport Manitoba, Archery Canada and other member provinces, has developed a “Return to Sport” for archery document, outlining the safe, provincial specific protocols to resume archery activities, events and programs. The return to sport protocol has been reviewed and approved by the Government of Manitoba. This document, in addition to Covid-19 user waivers,  allows clubs a method to resume activities effective immediately. The document is linked below for reference.
Utilizing the Archery Manitoba Return to Sport Protocol and Covid-19 Waivers, clubs are permitted to resume Archery Manitoba Sanctioned Club Events starting Friday June 12, 2020.
In addition to the Archery Manitoba Return to Sport Protocol, Archery Manitoba will require all participants of sanctioned events and programs to submit a waiver and covid-19 declaration. The waivers (assumption of risk for minors) and declaration are linked below for reference.
Archery Manitoba has been working with the Prairie Bowhunters (Portage la Prairie, MB) and the Brandon Wildlife Club (Brandon, MB) to support their planned 3D Shoots. Currently, both clubs plan to host their events on June 14 and 21 respectfully, but are still working out logistics to ensure they are adhering to protocols.
Please note, both clubs will be modifying the event structures to ensure that range capacity is kept within government regulations, social distancing is being practiced and appropriate resources and signage are in place to keep everyone safe and informed.
If these events proceed, please anticipate the following modifications.
  • Pre registration
  • Two shotgun start times (am & pm)
  • Max two shooters per target (scoring group)
  • 1 – 20 target course
  • Each archer shoots two arrows per butt for a score out of 40 targets in one loop around the course.

Stay posted to the Archery Manitoba Events Calendar for online registration and details coming soon!
