About Us

The Trinidad and Tobago Target Archery Federation is the National Governing Body for the sport of archery in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Trinidad and Tobago Target Archery Federation (TTTAF) was formed in 1991 and is affiliated with the World Archery Federation (FITA) and the Pan American Archery Federation (COPARCO). Archery is an Olympic sport and the TTTAF is a member of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) and the Trinidad and Tobago Paralympic Committee (TTPC).

Archery is participated at the Pan American Games, the CAC Games, the Commonwealth Games and at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The TTTAF has sent contingents to the last four CAC Games in 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010 with our highest finish at 6th.

In 2004, 2005 and 2006, archery was included in the Southern Games itinerary and attracted archers from Barbados. The TTTAF has included in the annual schedule the Outdoor National Championships and the Indoor National Championships among other monthly activities. We created the Southern Caribbean Championships several years ago as a rotating venue tournament with Barbados, Martinique and Guadeloupe. The prize of the Southern Caribbean Championships is "The Caribbean Cup" of which Barbados are the current holders.

The Federation

The Archery Federation is well established and recognized as the governing body for the sport of archery in Trinidad and Tobago. Operating under a democratic constitution we have seen three presidents and five boards over the last twenty years.

The TTTAF has continued working on expanding its base. The existing seven archery clubs are all increasing their memberships and are all improving in terms of the level of shooting. These clubs are: The Academy Archery Club in St. Joseph,  the Central Precision Archery Club in Chaguanas, the Elite Archery Club in Tunapuna, the Southern Bowtech Club in Gasparillo, the Points Archery Club in Chaguaramas, the Dragon Archery Club in St.Anns and the Forrest Reserve Archery Club. We continue to seek persons in Tobago to start a club there. The response has been very favourable as we continue to expose archery at schools, scout jamborees, youth and summer camps and other events.

In the last year the TTTAF has seen strong results at the regional level as well as the international level. Presently we have one shooter having made the respectable FITA score of 1350 and another two with scores above 1300. At present we have two archers within the top 100 of the World Rankings.
