Who can be a DOS?

Who can act as DOS at events?

Separate accreditation for a person to be a Director of Shooting (DOS) was removed as a requirement by Archery Australia a number of years ago when World Archery deemed it mandatory for the DOS to be a Judge at any World Archery registered event.

As such any National Judge or National Judge Candidate can act as a DOS at a registered WA events to enable the records and results to be valid.  

If the event is not registered with World Archery then this requirement is not needed and the event organising committee can appoint a DOS from a person with suitable knowledge of the rules to conduct an event. Although, it is always preferable to have a Judge or Judge Candidate act in this role whenever possible due to the need for the DOS to be fully conversant with the rules.

If the event is a National Championships then all Judges and the DOS will be appointed by the Archery Australia Officials Committee from the list of suitable applicants, they are not appointed by the Organising Committee.

Most RGBs have a similar system in place where they appoint people to Officiate at the State Level events.

NOTE: All the other normal requirements such as the number of Judges required for WA registered events must also still be adhered to.
