Outdoor Championship


Fusion Archery and USA Archery Arizona
2016 Arizona State JOAD Outdoor Championship
April 30th, 2016 - Star FITA registered

LOCATION:  Ben Avery Shooting Facility, FITA Range, Phoenix, Arizona

TOURNAMENT RULES:  USA ARCHERY including USAA World Archery rules effective April 1, 2016 will be enforced.  Noted exceptions below

Dress Code:  USA Archery Dress Code

In an effort to be more inclusive and to eliminate potential issues in welcoming new archers to USA Archery events, the USA Archery Board of Directors passed a revision to the current dress code. The revised dress code addresses the desired outcome and dictates less regarding specific colors allowed during competition. The general feel was to be sure our athletes presented themselves and the sport in a professional manner without dictating the specifics. The new dress code is effective Monday, May 31, 2010. 

USAA Dress Code: 

1. All athletes and coaches must present a professional, athletic appearance while on the field. (Torn, ripped or badly faded clothing articles are not allowed.) Clothing may be of any color. 

2. No camo or blue denim (jeans) may be worn at target events. Accessories such as trim on shirts, caps, quivers, armguards, footwear, etc., are permitted to be camo. At field events, denim may be worn but camo may not be worn.

3. Shorts, skorts and skirts must not be shorter than finger tip length while standing normally.

4. Men and women are required to wear upper garments covering the front and back of the body and covering the midriff when at full draw. Women's upper garments shall have a minimum strap of 3" or sleeves. Men's upper garments shall have short or long sleeves.

5. Sport/athletic shoes are recommended to all athletes and coaches during target events. Shoes must cover the entire foot. 6. At no time will any athlete or coach wear any article bearing any image or language to be considered offensive to others.
