The Mississauga 2022 Ontario Summer Games is supported by the Government of Ontario, through its Games Ontario program started in 1970 in Etobicoke as a showcase for amateur sport. This is Ontario's largest multi-sport event, including both team and individual sports.
Who can participate?
Provincial-level athletes in archery qualify through a regional selection process conducted by the Provincial Sport Organizations. The Games take place every two years and are awarded through a bidding process. They are supported by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport in collaboration with host communities.
When are the games and what can I expect as a participant?
The 2022 Summer Games will be held in Mississauga, Ontario, July 21 - 24, 2022. Archers are provided meals and accommodations by the Games Committee. Teams must provide their own uniform and may fund-raise to help offset this cost. Zone Management Teams (ZMT) coordinate and collaborate to organize safe and timely travel to and from Mississauga. Zone managers must submit their uniform color choices no later than June 15th, 2022.
Archers who reside over a 300km distance from the host location and carpool are eligible for a travel subsidy from the Games Committee. Often this takes a few months to be paid out. More to follow on this.
During their time at the Games in Mississauga, athletes are expected to remain with the team at all times. Athletes must arrive Thursday by NO later than 3pm. A rooming list will be compiled by the VP of Athlete Development and provided to the ZMT by June 30th. Athletes will sleep in the hotel and meals will be eaten as a team. Teams may visit other sports venues and attend events together, but athletes will remain together as a team, with their coach and manager.
Awards will be presented on both days of the competition as well as Team Awards on Friday.
ALL Athletes, coaches and team managers MUST have a valid and current Archery Ontario Membership.
What is the Archery Ontario regional selection process?
In total, 60 archers will be selected to compete at the multi-sport, mini-Olympic style Ontario Games. Each of Ontario's five zones will build a team of archers to compete. Each zone will be made up of 12 archers, 6 male, and 6 female. Archers may compete in Recurve, or Compound divisions, under the age groups of Junior (20 and under) or Cadet (17 and under). One Zone Management Team (ZMT) will assist in registering, training, and accompanying archers to the tournament. The male and female ZMT will consist of 1 coach and 1 manager.
Zone Management Team members must have a valid and current Vulnerable Sector Check as per the Screening Policy which must be submitted to Archery Ontario office administration by TBD in order to select, accompany, coach & develop athletes. The Team Coach must have a valid coaching qualification (NCCP Instructor Beginner, former NCCP Level 1, NCCP Intermediate, or former NCCP Level 2).
For qualification, Archers must shoot at a minimum of two 720 rounds. All sanctioned events listed on the Archery Ontario website event list can be used as a qualifier. Archers can shoot a qualifier in any zone, however, it is the responsibility of the archer to have their scorecard signed by a local club judge (at a min.) and forwarded to their Zone Management Team (ZMT). Scores must be submitted to the zone manager no later than June 19th, 2022. The teams will be selected by June 21st 2022.
The 720 qualification round is shot at the following distances
- 60m for Cadet
- 70m for Junior
- 50m for Cadet and Junior
ALL Zone Management Teams must ensure the qualifying Scores of ALL their athletes are submitted to the VP of Athlete Development BEFORE June 20th, 2022 to be eligible. Upon selecting team members, and no later than June 21st, the ZMT will send an email to the athlete with the link for Online Registration to OSG.
What can I expect to pay as a registration fee for myself, as an athlete? Where do I register?
Athletes can expect to pay a tournament registration fee to participate in the games. In the past it was $60 however, this remains to be determined, based on the funding portion from the province. More information to follow.
This can be done on the Archery Ontario Website when registration becomes available.

What is a Team Round?
Every archer shoots at their respective distance and will shoot 3 rounds of 3 arrows, after which all arrows will be added and totalled for each team. Each team's overall score will then be divided by the number of athletes on the team to get a final score.
- team 1: each archer scored 75 points, there are 12 athletes on the team. 75x12 = 900, 900/12 athletes = 75.
- team 2: 6 of the archers score 76 and 7 of them score 72. 76x6=456. 72x7=504. 504+456=960. 960/13 athletes = 73.8.
- Therefore team one would be ranked higher than team 2 as their final score is higher.
After the qualification round, all teams will be ranked by final score and the shoot off will be as follows:
- 1:00-1:20 - event explanation and warm up round
- 1:30-1:50 - every zone shoots a qualifying round (3 ends of 3 arrows)
- 1:50-2:10 - team in 5th place shoot against team in 2nd place. Team in 4th place shoot against team in 3rd place. Team in 1st gets a BYE. (3 ends of 3 arrows)
- 2:20-2:40 - 4v5 and 2v3 (3 ends of 3 arrows) Team 1 BYE
- 2:40-3:00 - bronze medal match
- 3:00-3:20 gold medal match
- 3:20 begin packing up and ready to meet buses for 4pm.
