Hosting a USA Archery event is a great opportunity to help archers in your community grow and gain competition experience. Archery competitions help archers build lifelong friendships, track their progress and growth, and reach whatever goals they may have within the sport.
Competitions that are held outside of general club activity must be sanctioned by USA Archery. "Outside of general club activity" is defined as a club holding competitions within the United States with open registration, where individuals are allowed to participate who are not current members of the host club. For purposes of the USA Archery Event Sanction Form, these competitions are referred to as "Events".
Any current USA Archery State Association or Club may sanction an event for a nominal fee of $20. For an additional fee of $50, the event may in addition, be sanctioned as a World Archery STAR Event. Sanctioned events must adhere to World Archery rules, and a USA Archery judge must be present. Sanctions must be submitted at least 10 business days prior to the start of the event, and preferably 60 days or more in advance.
