General Rules: 

·      Team Rounds are conducted at the tournament venue in front of spectators

·      Team Captain may make substitutions no later than one hour before scheduled start of the Team Round

·      Team Round is competed in 3ea 3-arrow ends shot on 3 separate sets of targets, Mixed Team Round is 5ea 3-arrow ends shot on 5 separate sets of targets

o   Each team will shoot its own targets

o   Identical targets will be set at identical distances (known) for each end

o   Teams will shoot each end simultaneously

o   At the end of the match the team with the highest aggregate score advances and the defeated team retires from the field of play

·      Teams shoot and score their match targets through the Bronze Medal match using double scoring and must agree on the score before arrows are pulled from the target

·      The 14-ring is in play during the Team Rounds

·      Any arrow pulled from a target before the score is agreed upon is scored as a zero

·      Groups must score the arrows for each round.  Any dispute must be settled by the group and final arrow scores determined before pulling any arrows from the target.

·      Bronze Medal Matches are shot simultaneously and scored by the teams

·      Gold Medal Matches are shot simultaneously and scored by the teams

·      Archers may not compete in a different division for team rounds or mixed team rounds than qualification rounds. There is no “small team” exceptions and different bow types may not be combined to create a team. 


Saturday Night Mixed Equipment Team Round (This event is counting towards awards):

·      The Saturday Mixed Team Shootdown is conducted in front of the spectators in an arena area

·      There must be at least 2 Teams to constitute a competition for award

·      Each school may participate with one team of 3 archers

·      Schools select their own teams

·      The teams will have three different types of bows:

o   At least 1 compound bow (only one Open and/or one Hunter per team)

o   At least 1 Olympic and/or Barebow (only one of each)

o   At least one female archer on each team

·      2 Stakes will be set, one at a 45-yard max and one at a 30-yard max (known distance)

·      All compound bows will shoot from the 45-yard max stake and all recurve/barebow will shoot from the 30-yard max stake

  • Back stake archers will shoot first followed by the front stake archers.  Teams must shoot 3 arrows in 4 minutes from the signal to start.  This allows teams with 2 compound bows time to finish shooting if there are teams with 2 recurve type bows shooting from the close stake
  • Each team will shoot one arrow per archer at 5 targets in rotation
  • Teams decide by coin toss or other method which side they will shoot from and will continue to shoot from that side throughout the event
  • Start will be a “shotgun” start
  • Teams that start on targets other than #1 will rotate out and queue up, waiting their turn for target #1 so they may shoot the remainder of the targets
  • 5 pairs of targets will be set so that there are 10 teams shooting simultaneously providing for double scoring
  • Aggregate scoring will be used to determine winners.  First total score, then number of bonus rings. If there is a tie in score and bonus rings for 1st place there will be a 1-arrow, closest to the bottom 12 shoot-off to determine the winner. Each team member will shoot one arrow in rotation and the score and distance of the closest arrow to the center of the lower 12 will be measured.  The team with the highest score or the arrow closest to the center of the lower 12, in case of a tie score and tie in bonus rings, will be the winner.

Changes to composition of teams may be submitted up to 1 hour prior to competition.

 

·       Team Round:

·      3-person teams in each class

·      Field will be cut to the top 8 teams and competition will start in the 1/4th round

·      Top 3 competitors from each school are automatically selected for competition in each class

·      There must be at least 2 Teams to constitute a competition for award

·      If there are only 3 teams, the Team with the lowest aggregate score will automatically be awarded the Bronze Medal and the two higher placing Teams will compete for Gold and Silver Medals

·       Mixed Team Round:

·      Top male and female in each category. This event will use scores from qualification and will count toward Overall Team Championship.
