World Archery Rule Change Reduces Shooting Time for Individual Rounds

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – This morning, World Archery announced a bylaw change, effective Jan. 15, 2022, that reduces the shooting time in qualification and individual Olympic, compound and indoor rounds from 40 seconds per arrow to just 30 seconds. For Para-archery rounds, the time will be extended by 10 seconds.

This change will impact USA Archery events that follow World Archery rules, including upcoming Indoor State and National championship events. USA Archery is actively evaluating the implications of this change and is seeking further guidance from World Archery. We will communicate additional information as it becomes available.

Review the Bylaw Change form.
