USA Archery Opens Registration for its Newest Event - the 2022 USA Archery 25 Meter Shootout!

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Archery and the Archery Trade Association (ATA) are making history with the first USA Archery 25 Meter Shootout at the 2022 ATA Trade Show. This archery tournament features a star-studded lineup of competitors, massive prize purses and a unique format for a spectacular shootout. With over $85,000 on the table, deep payouts equal for men and women, competition for compound, recurve and barebow, all are encouraged to come put their skills to the test at this 25-meter event; break records and gain exclusive access to the Trade Show floor with the hottest industry-leading retailers.

The USA Archery 25 Meter Shootout is a new and unique event exclusively found at the ATA Trade Show. The rarely shot 25-meter distance offers the opportunity for archers to compete with professional athletes, staff shooters, celebrities and everyone in between. Event attendees gain access to the 450,000 square foot exhibit hall with 550 exhibitors showcasing the newest technology in archery and bowhunting equipment and more. This special opportunity is brought to you through USA Archery and the ATA Trade Association’s partnership.

“This shoot is going to be fun,” Rod Menzer, USA Archery CEO said. “It’s a completely different round than what most people are used to shooting at USA Archery events and it will be a blast. We look forward to bringing together ATA members, top athletes, and industry leaders for a spectacular shoot.”

USA Archery has its biggest purse yet of $85,000, with payouts to the top ten finishers in each division. This event is no different from all other USA Archery events in that women will walk away with the same prize payout opportunities as the men. Compound archers placing first win $10,000, second is $4,000 and third is $2,500. Recurve men and women archers will win $7,000 for first, $3,000 for second, and $1,750 for third. All barebow archers, combined in a gender-neutral category, will compete to win $6,000 for first, $3,500 for second, and $1,000 for third. View the full prize chart, event rules and format.

Maria Lewis, ATA’s senior director of Trade Show and membership, hopes ATA members attend and enjoy the Shootout: “We’re thrilled to announce the addition of the 25 Meter Shootout to our 2022 schedule of events. Not only will this be an excellent competition, but the Shootout provides another opportunity for our members to interact, learn, and simply celebrate being back together as an industry.”

“The ATA has long been a supporter of USA Archery and makes such incredible efforts to grow the archery community,” Menzer said. “We’re proud and excited to build upon our partnership with the ATA to put together this new event.”

Archers will compete on Friday and Saturday and will gain access to the ATA Trade Show floor on Sunday as part of their tournament fee. Up to five additional passes will be available to registered archers for purchase.
