The selection policy for the 2023 World Youth Championships In Limerick, Ireland, has been officially published.
Archery GB has published the official youth selection policies for recurve and compound athletes hoping to earn a coveted spot to compete at the 2023 World Youth Championships.
This year’s championships will take place in Limerick, Ireland, which is considered locally as the "beating heart of sport in Ireland". Competition will take place at the University of Limerick campus with the picturesque River Shannon running alongside it.
For those youth athletes wanting to compete, the minimum qualifying scores have been set for entry to the selection process. There will be two selection shoot stages, the first taking place at Deer Park Archers Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 April, and the second at Lilleshall National Sports Centre on Sunday 14 May for compounds and Sunday 21 May for recurves.
The previous World Youth Championships took place in 2021 in Wroclaw, Poland, which saw some familiar and new faces make the podium. This time around, the best youth archers from across the globe will come to Ireland with the hopes of retaining their titles, or making their debut on the biggest junior archery stage.
Compound Programme Manager, Jon Nott, said: "Archery GB are looking to send a competitive team to the World Youth Championships in Limerick this coming July. Athletes and coaches are working hard in preparation for this event and it will be exciting to follow the progress of the team in 2023."
