Australian Course


Name: Aussie course (advanced class - canter / gallop)


Course diagram:

Track required: 90m track 2-4m wide 

Equipment required: 3 targets with either FITA80 targets (ie 80cm diameter round, 5-zone), stopwatch or timing gates



The rules are essentially as per the IHAA Korean rules other than a few details

  • Arrows can be held in the hand or in a quiver

  • The track set up for the triple shot is different: comprising a forward first shot, a perpendicular 2nd shot, and backwards 3rd shot. The targets are set 7m from the edge of the track, and #1 and #3 are angled towards the track 10m away.

  • The Aussie set used in grading and postal matches is 6 runs in total - 3 runs of double and 3 runs of 3-shot



As per the IHAA Korean: 

  • 5 zone scoring: 1-5 pts

  • Par speed is 14s for 90m. Faster than this you gain points at 1pt/s up to a maximum of 5 points (ie no further point gain for covering 90m in less than 9s). Slower than 14s points are deducted at 1pt/s (or part thereof).
    Speed points are only gained if a target is hit on that run.

  • 3 bonus points awarded on the 3-shot if all targets are hit


Developed by: Katrina Kruse (Australia)

Historic aspect: none


Benefits: Easier to safely set up in an indoor school with several participants as all shooting is directed towards the middle of the 90m run. A good introduction to Hungarian for beginners.

Safety notes: None
