2021 ITAA Indoor State (and National) Tournaments

JOAD: Feb 5, 2021 – Feb 6, 2021

All-Ages: Feb 6, 2021 – Feb 7, 2021

DuPage County Fairgrounds, Wheaton, IL

Format:

Indoor 18 Meter 600 Round — 60 arrows

This year the format is an 18m 600 Round.  (We’re hoping to hold a separate 25m Championship, at another date.)

In the JOAD tournament only, all Bowman and Cub Recurve and Barebow/Basic Bow competitors shoot on a 60cm target face.  In all other circumstances, the 40cm-size will be used (regardless of single or 3-spot).

How do I register?

There are links at the bottom of this page.  But the steps are quite different this year, so I recommend reading about what’s new.

 

What’s new this year?

This year the ITAA State Tournaments are on the same weekend.  The JOAD tournament will have time slots on Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday morning.  The All-ages tournament will have time slots on Saturday afternoon/evening and Sunday.  These are separate tournaments with separate signups, separate scores, and separate awards.

This year USA Archery has arranged to combine its multi-venue indoor nationals tournament with each state’s state championship tournament.  So if you register for both the ITAA State Tournaments and the USAA National Tournaments, your state score will be your nationals score!  So it’s never been easier to shoot USAA Indoor Nationals!

Does that sound like four tournaments are happening?  That’s because they are.  So make sure to follow the registration instructions below to sign up for all four tournaments!
