3.Competition Format

30-arrow qualifier followed by a mixed team elimination round, 18 arrows per team round


Archers will shoot 10 ends of 3 arrows at a 10-ring FITA target face, or 3-spot target, for a total of 300 possible points. Archers will have 2 minutes to shoot 3 arrows. Archers are ranked according to cumulative score for awards. In the event of a tie, total X count will be used to break tie followed by total 10’s.

Mixed Team

Mixed team rounds are head-to-head elimination matches between teams using cumulative score; the team with the higher score wins the match and continues to the next round until a winner is decided.

Teams are drawn at random with archers of different age divisions and bow categories comprising one mixed team. Example: a team can be comprised of 1 NASP, 1 Olympic recurve and 1 Bowhunter archer. Each team is randomly placed in a competition bracket for elimination matches.

A team of 3 archers will shoot 18 arrows in 3 ends of 6 arrows (2 arrows per archer) for a total of 18 arrows, 180 points. Archers will have 3 minutes to shoot 6 arrows.

If a team match is tied then the match is decided in a shoot-off. Each archer in the team shoots one arrow. The highest cumulative score of 3 arrows wins the match. If no winner can be decided, the process is repeated until a winner is found. Archers will have 1 minute and 30 seconds to shoot 3 arrows.

Further details on how Youth Invitational team rounds work are available here.
