Rules and Shooting divisions:

  • Archers will shoot a total of 60 scoring arrows (three-arrow ends using JOAD target sizes for youth archers, and FITA targets for archers in the senior category or older). 

  • The event is NOT registered as a Star FITA event with USA Archery, so participants do NOT need USA Archery memberships (as in past years). 

  • Aside from safety-related considerations, there is no specific dress code other than clothing not having offensive language or images on it. 

  • Equipment must meet FITA rules, with arrows having a diameter of 9.3mm or less (size 2315 or smaller).

  • Archers will be assigned a target, and will score in assigned groups. Archers MUST be familiar with tournament scoring (see linked document below)

 

Bow DIVISIONS:

Archers may register to shoot either barebow, recurve, compound, or compound w/fingers.

For all other rule considerations, check with the tournament director.
