Who are we?

The South African National Indoor and Field Archery Association (SANIFAA) was reformed in January 2021 by a group of enthusiastic archers that enjoy International Field Archery Association (IFAA) competition. Before 2014 SANIFAA existed as a Archery Association for the IFAA discipline, and was incorporated within the South African National Archery Association in 2014.

SANIFAA offers its members the opportunity to participate in all IFAA disciplines and it recognises the International Field Archery Association disciplines. In so doing, members can decide which discipline they are more comfortable with and have the opportunity to compete in indoor, field and 3D archery.
