STAY UP TO DATE
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A new system for reporting national records has gone live. Following an overhaul of the records reporting system, USA Archery has been processing records submitted and is now opening submissions for new records.
The records were previously maintained by Level 4-NTS Coach Ron Carmichael, who graciously maintained the records, as well as many USA Archery historical photos, for many years as a volunteer. USA Archery would like to express its gratitude to Ron for his many years of volunteer service to the organization and its members.
Current records may be viewed at: http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Archery/Events/National-Records
USA Archery is asking for your assistance with records verification. If you've submitted a record claim, please take a moment to view the records, and let us know if you see something that may be an error. This will help us to maintain the integrity of the National Records.
Please take a moment to review the following information about requirements for submitting a record, the process for submitting a record, and requesting a correction on a record.
In order for a record to be applicable, it must have
been shot at an event that was registered as USA Archery Sanctioned event.
o For a
record to apply for World Record status, the event must have been sanctioned by
USA Archery AND registered as a Star FITA.
Records can only be applied for by USA Archery members
and U.S. Citizens
The rounds being applied for must be OFFICIALLY
RECOGNIZED rounds by either USA Archery or World Archery (WA). There is a
complete list at the end of this document.
If a record is shot at International Star FITA
competition by a U.S. Citizen who is also a member of USA Archery (during the
time of the event), the record will be applicable for submission.
There is one set of U.S. National Records.
Records can be applied for in an 'upward'/'downward'
fashion provided the distances and target sizes, and
order of distances shot, are the same.
o If a Junior archer competes at a 72 arrow 70 meter
round, and obtains a record that exceeds that of the existing Junior AND Senior
record - this may be applied to the Senior record placeholder as well. (upward
o If an archer is competing as a Senior, but is the
age of a younger division (Junior), and the archer obtains a record higher than
the noted Junior record, this may be applied for as a U.S. National Record.
All records must be submitted to the USA Archery
Office within 5-10 days of the conclusion of the event.
A score must be shot that is at least 1 point higher
than that listed within the database to be eligible.
