What Must You Wear? (and "NOT") To be consistent with the USA Archery Rules, the USA Archery dress code applies to Official Competition days.
No camouflage attire and no denim will be allowed during tournament competition days, archers not in compliance will be asked to leave the field.
Sportsmanship By registering, you agree to behave. If you have any doubts about what that means, please review the USAA Code Of Conduct. No exceptions, No excuses.
For the Youngest Archers YEOMAN! That's the ticket! These are the little guys, frequently little brothers and sisters that want to play. Scores are not reported (but we do try and teach them how to keep score and record scores) and is a participation class only. Participation awards are given to all the kids for participating with no 1st, 2nd, or 3rd designations. As such, we can then put the target at any distance so they spend more time in front of the target shooting than behind the target looking for arrows.  Typically, either 20 or 15 meters on a 122cm face the whole time. If they need to take a few ends off to watch the butterflies or go to the bathroom, no big deal.  If they want to stop half way through and then change their mind and resume once they have had their snack, so be it.  It is all about fun and participation within the confines of the other competition for these little guys. Yeoman will start these guys at 20 meters and and adjust closer if needed.
Compound Scoring Reminder There is an inner X Ring in the outdoor target, be sure you understand HOW you will score your arrows in the gold (9/10/x values)! THIS is a great reference for knowing how to score during tournaments
