2020 National Judge Training Clinic

During the 2020 Canadian Target & Field Championships, Archery Canada will host a National Judge Clinic. This year’s National Judge Clinic will begin on Tuesday July 21st, Charlottetown PEI. Further details for the clinic will be communicated at a later date. National Judge Candidates, National Judges, Continental and International Judge Candidates are all encouraged to attend. In the spring of 2020, the National Judge Candidates will receive documents from the Chair of the Archery Canada Judges Committee that are to be completed (e.g., case study, exams), so it is important that judges apply early. The National Judge Candidates will have the opportunity to officiate at the 2020 Canadian Target & Field Championships alongside National Judges.

Minimum Level of Certification

The minimum desired level of judge certification for all Canadian Championships is National Judge Candidate. Note: With the recommendation of a judge applicant’s province/territory, a Provincial/Territorial Judge will be considered a National Judge Candidate by the Judge Committee.

Judging Expenses

Archery Canada will cover the following judge expenses for all Canadian Championships: 

  1. Daily per diem at a rate of $50.00 (the following rates will be used: $10/breakfast $15/lunch, $25/dinner)
  2. Travel to and from the host city (air travel or ground transportation). Air travel is the cost of an Air Canada Tango class or equivalent priced class of ticket with other airlines such as Westjet, Porter. For those that travel by car, Archery Canada provides a reimbursement rate of $0.45 per kilometre to a maximum equal to the above described airline ticket cost. It is the lesser amount of the two (ground or air transport) that is reimbursed by Archery Canada.
  3. Accommodation (based on double occupancy). Judges that want private rooms, are responsible for paying the additional charges.  

The Host Organizing Committee (HOC) will cover the following judge expenses for all Canadian Championships: 

  1. Ground transportation to and from the hotel and the competition venue. Please note, if the vehicle provided by the HOC is used for personal use, unrelated to the event, such as tourist activities, any incidental costs for usage of the vehicle will be the responsibility of the judges. 
  2. One (1) banquet ticket per judge. 

Please note that Archery Canada does not cover expenses for the National Candidates who are not members of the Officials Teams. Please consider asking your provincial/territorial archery association for financial assistance to help cover your costs.

The Archery Canada Judge Committee will review all applications and nominate judges to the Officials Team for each Championship. Nominations to the Officials Team will be approved the Archery Canada Board of Directors by the end of March, after which all judges named to Officials Teams will be notified.
