The first stage of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Archery will be held at the same location, on September 6 and 7. The Olympic Team Trials are a three-stage event process, and the September event is the first of those three events. The second two events will be held in 2016.

For those archers advancing to the U.S. Olympic Team Trials, their qualification scores from the Texas Shootout will be counted toward their point totals for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. The Athlete Selection Procedures for the 2016 Olympic Games contain complete information on how point totals will be calculated.

All compound archers, and cadet recurve archers, will participate in a 72-arrow qualification and an elimination round for the Texas Shootout. Senior and junior Recurve archers will participate in a 144 - arrow qualification round only.
