At last night’s KAA Committee meeting, the committee reached the decision that KAA would not be sending teams to the 2022 National County Championships.
For transparency, we wished to communicate this decision to our members as soon as possible.
This was not a decision taken lightly, KAA have previously supported this event since its inception in 2014.
Strong representations were made by some Committee members that KAA should enter teams to this year’s event, however after extensive consideration, the overwhelming majority of Committee members agreed KAA would not participate.
The decision to not send teams to the event this year was based primarily when KAA became aware that the entry for this event was opening, it was very short notice.
At the time of submitting an entry for this event, it appears you are required to name the team members that are attending.
The KAA committee felt it was not in a position to do this at present, as it would be unfair without a clear selection process being communicated to its members for them to participate in.
For example, if it had been known in February this year that entry would be opening in June, then our members could have been advised of what scores could be submitted for consideration for selection and a deadline date of the start of June be clearly communicated.
This would have allowed a fair and transparent selection process to be implemented.
The KAA Committee felt it would simply not be fair to select teams for this event without the membership being aware of a clear selection process which would allow all interested members the opportunity to submit scores for consideration if desired.
It was agreed that holding a selection period now, would place too much pressure on entering this event at short notice. It would have the detrimental impact for selected archers having to make short notice travel and accommodation arrangements.
KAA will be making contact with ArcheryGB to request that counties are notified at the earliest opportunity of the proposed date for this event in 2023, including the date when entry processes will open.
