World Archery Rules Apply.  

Out of state archers are permitted to shoot in their respective division in both qualifications and eliminations.  They are not eligible for awards or podium positions as it is a state championship for Arizona archers only.  In-state finish positions will be based on elimination rounds.  If an out of state archer earns a podium finish then we shift up the in state archers.  If two or more out of state archers make the medal matches, then we will use the archers that lost in the semifinal round and the highest qualifying scores move onto the podium.


USA Archery Dress Code Policy will be in place.


Arrow Requirements (World Archery, Book 3):

11.1.7. Arrows of any type may be used provided they comply with the common meaning

of the word "arrow" as used in target archery, and do not cause undue damage to

target faces or butts. An arrow consists of a shaft with a tip (point), nocks, fletching and, if desired, cresting. The maximum diameter of arrow shafts shall not exceed 9.3mm (arrow wraps shall not be considered as part of this limitation as long they do not extend further than 22cm toward the point of the arrow when measured from the throat - nock hole where the string sits - of the nock to the end of the wrap); the tips (points) for these arrows may have a maximum diameter of 9.4mm. All arrows of every athlete shall be marked with the athlete's name or initials on the shaft. All arrows used in any end shall be identical and shall carry the same pattern and colour(s) of fletching, nocks and cresting, if any. Tracer nocks (electrically/electronically lighted arrow nocks) are not allowed.
