COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - USA Archery’s National Indoor Championships has reached its 50th year and we are so looking forward to celebrating this milestone with you all. Registration is now open for the 50th U.S. National Indoor Championships and the 2019 JOAD National Indoor Championships. These annual events allow archers to compete at one of thirteen convenient locations and see how they measure up against competition from around the nation. 

Then, back after a huge inaugural success this year, USA Archery will host the National Indoor Championships Final, March 15, in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Duke Energy Center.

The top eight archers from any age class are eligible to qualify for the National Indoor Finals, for head-to-head, single elimination matches in the Recurve Men, Recurve Women, Compound Men and Compound Women divisions. NEW this year, Lancaster Archery Supply has generously sponsored a gender-neutral, combined age class Barebow division for inclusion at the Final. Prize money will be awarded for all places.

This winter, the events start in December 2018 and carry through March according to the following schedule:

  • December 28-30: Ohio, Minnesota
  • January 11-13: Utah, Florida
  • February 1-3: Texas, Michigan, New Mexico and Chula Vista, California
  • February 15-17: Virginia 
  • February 22-24: Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Sacramento, California
  • March 15: National Indoor Championships Final – Cincinnati, Ohio

Online registration options are available for each location, making sign-up fast and easy. Please note that registration is not complete until you receive a “confirmation of payment” notification. Check back on the registration page for your location to make sure your name appears on the list of registered participants.

If you are registering in Ohio or Minnesota for the December competition dates, participants will register based on their competitive age class for 2019 to match other locations.
