Summer Solstice

 Registration is OPEN!

Striving for that gold medal, top three finish, or personal best is what tournament play is all about, and we cannot wait to see you on the field with us. The Lancaster Archery Academy is holding our Eighth Annual Summer Solstice Star FITA tournament on June 17 and 18. You can register online above by clicking the red 'Reserve' button. All shooters will be required to have a current USA Archery Membership. WA/USA Archery Rules and Dress Code will be in effect.


Once all divisions have completed their qualification round, we will combine age classes and genders into three larger divisions: Recurve, Compound, and Barebow. The top 8 finishers in each of these combined divisions based on qualification score will be eligible to shoot head-to-head elimination matches for prize money. Archers will shoot elimination rounds at their standard distance and according to World Archery rules. For instance, a Bowman Barebow shooting at 30M may shoot against a Masters Barebow shooting at 50M if they both ranked in the top 8 for Barebow overall. Recurve and Barebow matches will follow the Set System. Compound matches will be based on total score. Due to differences in equipment, while bowhunter (fixed pin) archers will be ineligible to compete in elimination matches, they will still be eligibile to compete in qualifications, and may receive a trophy for their placement in that round.


The tournament will be held at the Lancaster Archery Academy's Archery Park, which is located off the rear parking lot of the Lancaster Archery Supply Pro Shop, 2195-A Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, PA 17602.
