Team titles shall be calculated using a cumulative point system based on final placement in each event, i.e. individual (calculated from elimination round), team and mixed team events, where first place is awarded 10 points, second place is 8 points, third place is 6 points, fourth place 5 points, fifth place 4 points, sixth place 3 points, seventh place 2 points and eighth place 1 point.
All four divisions (Barebow, Bowhunter, Compound and Recurve) will be counted toward the National Team Championship. Calculation is total cumulative points (individual, team, and mixed team points combined) of each division. National Team Championships are calculated at National Collegiate Target Nationals and National 3D Collegiate Championships.
Each school is allowed a maximum of three archers earning points for individual events and one team in each team event. If a school has more than three archers finish in the top eight, only the top three finishes will be included for purposes of point calculations and archers from other institutions will be moved up in points placement (Example: university A has finishers in 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th places. The 7th place archer would not receive points toward team championship calculation, and archer in 8th place would receive 7th place point, archer in 9th place would receive 8th place points).
Archers/teams in fifth thru eighth place are ranked by the total score of the last match. In the event of a tie for fifth thru eighth place the tie will be broken by the highest number of total 10’s shot in the ¼ finals. If still tied, the highest number of X’s will be used to break the tie. Should the archers/teams remain tied, the combined ranking points of all tied positions will be added together and divided by the number of archers/teams in the tied positions.
For example: fifth and sixth place remain tied (3+2/2 = 2.5pts each).
Archers/Teams in fifth thru eighth place are ranked by set points from the from the last match. If tied with set points, archers/teams are then ranked by the total raw score from the last match. If still tied the highest number of 10’s will be used to break the tie. If still tied, the highest number of X’s will be used to break the tie. Should the archers/teams remain tied, the combined ranking points of all the tied positions will be added together and divided by the number of archers/teams in the tied positions.
For example: fifth and sixth place remain tied (3+2/2 = 2.5 pts. each).
Team National Champion will be determined by the highest cumulative points total for all events (individual, team and mixed team). Should there still be a tie, the school with the highest number of first place finishes will be declared to be the winner. Should a tie remain, the school with highest number of second finishes will be declared the winner. Should a tie remain, then the school with highest number of third place finishes will be declared the winner. Should a tie still exist, those schools, will share in the national title as co-national champions. To compete for a team title, a minimum of three (3) individual archers must compete for the same school team.
The All-American Team will be composed of to the Top 25% of archers (rounded up to nearest whole number) in each Division and Class that participated in both USA Archery Indoor Nationals and USA Archery Collegiate Target Nationals in the same division (maximum 10) and will be calculated by taking the combined arrow average from the Indoor Nationals and the qualification round of Collegiate Target Nationals. The maximum point value an archer can receive from each event is 10, for a combined score of 20. Collegiate Archery Program All-Americans will also be eligible for sponsor discounts through USA Archery sponsors!
The All-American Academic Team will be composed of archers in each division and class and based on the following criteria:
The All Region Team will be composed of the Top 25% (rounded up to nearest whole number) of archers in each region in each Division and Class that participated in both U.S. National Indoors and the Regional Outdoor Collegiate Championships, and will be calculated by taking the combined score from the National Indoor Championships and Regional Outdoor Championships (maximum 5).
In the case where a Regional Outdoor Championship event is not held, the All-Region Team will be calculated by taking combined scores from the National Indoor Championships and National Outdoor Collegiate Championships.

USA Archery’s Collegiate All-Around Archer of the Year Award will recognize outstanding collegiate archers based on placement at U.S. National 3D Collegiate Championships, U.S. National Indoor Championships, and U.S. National Collegiate Target Nationals (Qualification Round). Participation in all three events is required to be eligible. This award is based on these three events within the same academic year.
The award will be presented to one athlete in each gender and division (Male and Female, Barebow, Bowhunter, Compound and Recurve) at the National Outdoor Collegiate Championships social event.
The Collegiate All-Around Archer of the Year will be calculated by taking archers’ ranks from each of the three tournaments listed above and adding each together (i.e. if I placed 1st, 4th, and 2nd respectively, that archer’s points for the award would be 7). The male and female archer from each division with the lowest point total will be awarded the Collegiate All-Around Archer of the Year.
Note: Due to circumstances around COVID-19, there will not be 2021 All-Around Archer of the Year Awards.
Each region shall elect their regional coach of the year. All Regional Coaches of the Year (one per region: East, North, South, West) shall be eligible for National Coach of the Year. The designated USA archery representative will handle the election and results, which will be completed online or via mail to ensure that all Clubs are able to vote. The Regional Coach of the Year and the overall Coach of the Year will awards will be announced at the Outdoor Collegiate Nationals event. Limit one vote per team (vote is by the official team representative). Ties will result in a runoff election. If the runoff ends in a tie there will be co-coaches of the year.
