Field Round, Modified WA Rules



The 2nd Annual BFAA Field Archery Tournament is designed for archers to get their feet wet in Field Archery Competition. For this reason rules have been modified to accommodate beginning athletes:

INDIVIDUAL COMPETITION FORMAT

Athletes shoot 16 targets over two rounds for qualification. Round one consists of 8 target set at marked distances and round two consists of 8 targets set at unmarked or unknown distances.


Compound and recurve athlete shoot three arrows per target from first pegs (furthest away) while barebow athlete shoot three arrows per target from second pegs (closer).

Athletes are ranked on the total of their 16-target qualification round. The top scoring athletes in each division advance to the first elimination round (number of advancing athletes will be determined based on participation numbers), where they shoot three arrows each at 6 marked targets.


Athletes are then ranked on the total of their 6-target first elimination round. The top scoring athletes in each division advance to the second elimination round, where they shoot three arrows each at five marked targets. Athletes are then ranked on the total of their five-target second elimination. The top scorer of the two athletes that did not advance will be the bronze medal winner. The top scoring four athletes in each division advance to the semifinals.


The losers of the two semifinals compete in a silver medal match while the winners of the two semifinals compete in the gold medal match to decide who wins the tournament.

Tied matches are decided with a shoot-off. Each athlete shoots one arrow and the arrow that lands closest to the middle wins the match. If no winner can be decided, the process is repeated until a winner is found.
