The National Ranking System (NRS) takes into consideration archers' placements throughout the year at USA Archery's National and USAT Qualifier events as well as finishes in World Cups, World Championships and Olympic competition.
In order to receive a national ranking, you must be a USA Archery member in good standing.
Your ranking will be used to determine:
- Placement on the Senior United States Archery Team (USAT)
- Eligibility to compete for the U.S. in the World Cup series
- Eligibility for USOC athlete support programs
(note: for the above requirements you must be a U.S. citizen, however, any member is eligible for a ranking)
The first 2013 event in the NRS is the Arizona Cup and continues with the remaining 2013 USAT Qualifier Series Events. The 2014 USAT team will be selected based on the National Ranking System following the final 2013 USAT Qualifier Series Event. The 2013 World Cup teams will be selected based on the NRS and any USOC benefits allocated in 2013 will be assigned by your position in the NRS.
The "National Ranking System 101" document is a step-by-step framework for how the NRS will function, and how it will be implemented within USA Archery's programs.
