COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Archery is now introducing our tournament-packed 2017 season! Indoor season kicks off with 13 locations for the 48th U.S. National Indoor and 2017 JOAD National Indoor Championships over 4 weekends. Then the USAT series returns with four locations, and U.S. National Target Championships and JOAD Nationals hit the road and head to Indiana.

The U.S. National Indoor Championships events start Feb. 17-19 in New Mexico and Florida, then Feb. 24-26 in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and California. March 3-5 Texas, California and Minnesota host events and we wrap in Virginia, Ohio and Utah, March 10-12. More information including contact information for each location is below.

The USAT Qualifier Series opens the outdoor season with Arizona Cup on April 7-9 in Phoenix, Arizona. Qualification of the Arizona Cup will serve as the first stage of the U.S. World Team Trials. May 26-29, we head to Newberry, Florida for the Gator Cup and conclusion of U.S. World Team Trials. Next on the tour is Chula Vista, California for the SoCal Showdown on August 24-26, and after a year away, we return to College Station, Texas for the Texas Shootout on September 22-24.

National Target Championships and JOAD Nationals will take place August 2-6 in Westfield, Indiana. USA Archery is excited to work with the Hamilton County Sports Authority to bring our Outdoor Nationals to Indiana. More information on this event, including hotel blocks will be available soon.

The National Field Championships are early next year, taking place June 2-4 in Darrington, Washington. This event will also host the recurve and barebow World Games Trials for the World Games July 23-30 in Wroclaw, Poland. Two compound team members will be selected from the U.S. World Team Trials, which will take place over the Arizona Cup and Gator Cup.

USA Archery will also host trials events July 7-9 in Lansing, Michigan for the World Archery Youth Championships, and July 14-16 in Salt Lake City, Utah for the World Archery Para Championships. November 3-5, Newberry, Florida will host the U.S. Team Trials for World Archery Indoor Championships.
