2018 USA Archery Judge Seminars and Certification Courses

As USA Archery events continue to grow, we are proud to offer ten Judge Seminars for 2018. These seminars are designed for both new and experienced judges of all levels; whether you are an experienced Certified or National Judge looking to further your knowledge, or if you are new to judging, this course has much to offer. These two-day seminars will be led by an International Level Judge. The curriculum will focus on educating and developing judges at all levels to make the right calls every time. Topics will include:

  • Philosophy of judging
  • Communication with organizers/coaches/archers
  • Judges responsibilities before, during and after the tournament
  • Field inspection, equipment and Dress Code inspection procedures
  • Line judging (equipment failures, 3-meter line) and timing
  • Arrow value calling, target judging and scoring
  • Indoor scoring and match play
  • Rules and resources (where to find them and how to read them)
  • Hands-on judging exercises and case study examples

Certification: This seminar will also serve as a certification course for Certified Judge and National Judge Certification. Participants who meet the requirements for National Judge will be able to test at the end of the course. Participants who are not yet certified as a Judge will be able to take the Certified Judge exam.
