TSAA announces the second annual "Texas Outdoor Target Series" or "TOTS"

CHAMPIONSHIP UPDATE: In an effort to grant more weight to the TOTS series championship event, each archer's score from the final will be doubled before it is added to the total of their three highest TOTS scores of the regular season. By adding more weight to the series' final event, this will offer an opportunity for those archers who haven't quite shown their season potential yet a chance to showcase their improved skill set, and it will give the archers who lead their division incentive to still shoot their best at the TOTS championship event. It should be a fun event for all.

Archers who have shot in three or more regular season TOTS events are eligible to shoot for the TOTS championship. Their top three scores will be carried into the finals. Archers can check their scores and standings *here* to see where they rank. Those that haven't shot three or more season TOTS events are still welcome to come shoot on a space available basis against Texas' best for bragging rights and to give notice for next years TOTS season.


Use this REGISTRATION FORM for the TOTS event of your choice! (and for the LABOR DAY WEEKEND CLOUT Event as well)

NOTE: The only remaining event you can register for is the final, championship event in Floresville.

SPECIAL: We have been running into a small difficulty. Each TOTS event has been wayyy popular - shooting lines "full" in advance, well ahead of the tournament date. The tournament directors have to actually turn folks away! Now, the TOTS are event where you let us know you want to shoot, and you pay at the door. The TD does the target assignments and planning for all the complicated aspects - distances, bow types, gender, divisions, etc. and counts on there being the right number of each archer on each target for scoring and timely shooting - to insure a good time for all participants. Imagine how it works out, though, when there are no-shows - archers that just don't show up with no warning? It causes a mess for the TD and for the archers. If you are signed up for an event, please do NOT be rude. Don't be a no-show. It's just good manners. And it doesn't cause problems for your fellow archers.

In an effort to offer more outdoor target archery events during the summer, TSAA has created an outdoor target archery series that will feature a new 108-arrow round in an "outdoor league" atmosphere, and a final TOTS championship event will be held in early fall, TBD..

The goal is to provide a single-day event, easy for families to get to, inexpensive to participate in, and challenging enough to stimulate the competitiveness in youth archers. This also serves to get youth archers used to the competitive environment so when they get to the bigger tournaments they already know what to expect and can perform better, faster.

This outdoor target archery series features a new, youth-friendly 108-arrow round in an "outdoor league" atmosphere that culminates with a chance for participants to shoot for two titles in a final championship event in the fall.
 Archers wishing to participate in the Texas Outdoor Target Series will have several opportunities statewide to shoot at qualifying events. A minimum of three qualifying scores will be required to compete for the TOTS championship title. The final championship event for the TOTS series will be decided on in a final TOTS championship in the fall. 
The "Texas 1080" round is designed to offer archers and event organizers an efficient, easy to set up and easy to shoot tournament that can be completed in one day, while still allowing time for travel across our great state. The round reduces a full "FITA" by 36 arrows, but still preserves the multiple distances and target sizes many archers enjoy. It also features the target size and distance every archer will shoot for their elimination rounds during OR (Olympic Round) events.
Texas 1080 distance and target sizes will be gender and discipline - neutral, and are as follows:
Adults and Juniors: 70/50/30 meters;
Cadets & 'Adult/Junior Barebow': 60/50/30 meters;
Cubs & 'Cadet Barebow': 50/30/20 meters
Bowman:& 'Cub Barebow': 30/25/20 meters;
'Bowman Barebow' : 20/15/10 meters (and are encouraged to shoot up if not challenged by these distances)

and in the non-competitive division;
Yeoman: 20/15/10 meters - no awards, but recognition is given.

***Target sizes will be 122/80/60 cm. The larger target at the longest distance, next smaller target at middle distance, etc.
Multiple target faces per bale will be available for compound archers (5-ring 80 cm faces) and for all archers at their closest distance to allow for six-arrow ends in the interest of time.
