MISSION

 

World Archery Americas is the continental association leading the sport of archery in the Americas. It is meant to work towards empowering its member associations to design and implement plans to achieve high levels of performance at continental and whole-world championships and games, as well as towards making archery a sport accessible to everyone in our member associations.

VISION

 

A future where archery is seen as a popular sport in the Americas, where athletes from most of our member associations excel at major international events, and where World Archery Americas is recognized as an example of a continental sports organization by World Archery and the Multi-Sports Continental bodies in the Americas.

VALUES

 

  • Integrity: World Archery Americas is a respected organization, with a clearly worded Constitution to abide by.  We showcase transparency in our administration and financial management.
  • Inclusiveness:  Archery is a sport for everyone. We have age categories allowing the participation of very young archers as well as people over 50 years of age.  There is no age limit for archers to represent their countries at international events.
    Archery includes events for men and women, and mixed events. At the Pan American and Parapan American Games, the number of quota places allocated is the same for each gender.
    Archery includes special categories at para events, with very few changes in their rules as compared with the rules used by able-bodied archers.  Para archers can compete at conventional events alongside able-bodied archers.
  • Teamwork: World Archery Americas believes in the importance of coordinating efforts with our Member Associations, athletes, coaches, judges, and officials to work together to promote the positive benefits of our sport.
  • Education: World Archery Americas believes in the educational role our sport plays not only in the technical aspects, but in its life-long impact on the personality of our archers, coaches, and officials.
  • Sportsmanship: Archery is a discipline that exhibits and observes qualities that are highly regarded in sports: generosity, courtesy, pride, ethics, solidarity, and fair play.
