Lancaster Archery Summer Smackdown


Registration opening soon!

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 third Annual Summer Smack Down Star FITA tournament on September 23 and 24. 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.


New this year is an exciting change to our tournament format! Once each division has 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 on the same day as their qualifier round at 25M and according to World Archery rules. For instance, a Bowman Barebow shooting at 25M may shoot against a Masters Barebow shooting at 25M 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.


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.
