All Irish Field Archery Federation run shoots are open competitions, Archers from other archery organisations are more than welcome to join in the fun.
If you are looking to join IFAF and are already are a trained archer, you can do so using the other association membership form found on the membership page. You do not need to go through the Basic Training Program but you do need the sign off from a current IFAF member and take part in a Walk-up round of targets or an open competition. This is just to make sure you can shoot safely and know the basic rules/etiquette – they can differ from organisation to organisation.
