To be eligible for the team, participants must be a CA resident and shoot 70m – 72 arrows Saturday, and 60/50/40m 900 round – 90 arrows on Sunday, and compete both days.

 **Masters women may shoot a special Masters Women 70m category where they shoot against masters of the same age (who will be shooting at 60m) but also shoot the appropriate distance to be part of the team.  (This only affects Masters Women CA Team applicants who will shoot 70m but their scores will be sorted with Masters 60m women for Desert Open awards.)  Youth may also try out for the CA Duel Team by using the same criteria of shooting 70m but may be registered in their age division.
