2020 ITAA All-Ages Indoor State Championship – (Updated with Results)



The Rcherz.com results do not include the Belleville location results for this event.  

2020 ITAA Indoor State Championship – Final results


Congratulations to the 38 new state record holders shooting excellent scores in this event!  See the state records and your own historical scores over on the score explorer tool on the State Records Page.

21 scores exceeded the USAA national record scores.  A few of these are archers setting new scores in categories that have no record, but most are true record-breakers.  National Records claims must be received within 5 days of the event.  Resources for making a claim are on the USA Archery National Records page.

(Because not everyone exceeding the national record score submits a claim, some of our state records are higher scores than the national record.  I only check the state record setting scores.  It’s always worth checking your category’s national record, as you may want to submit a national record claim even if there is a higher ITAA state record -TK)

The ITAA is proud to hold this 2020 All-ages State Championship.  This is one of the best changes to compete against archers from Illinois and traveling from other states!  Choose a venue and a date to show off your stuff! Registration is now open.  The registration links are at the bottom.

The format for this indoor event is a World Archery Combined Round – a World Archery 18m 600 Round and a World Archery 25m 600 round.

This is 60 arrows at a standard 4-color World Archery target (40cm for the 18m round, 60cm for the 25m round).  Shooters can choose to shoot either or both of these days.  Awards are given for each event separately and for a combined aggregate champion in each category.

      • Strictly Archery, Shorewood

Choose north or south, and in the north choose any of the 25m venues.  The scores will be combined together statewide. 18m State Champions will be announced at the end of February 15th. 25m State Champions will be posted to the web site and Rcherz as soon as the scores are gathered.

  • NEW FOR THIS YEAR: All 3-spot targets will be vertical 3-spot targets.  This is what all World Archery format tournaments are moving to.  During registration you will need to choose whether to use a single spot target or a 3-spot target, so we can arrange archers on a bale correctly.  
  • All age, gender, and bow style  categories will comply with USA Archery guidelines.
  • All compound competitors use the inner 10-Ring for scoring.
  • Medal awards will be presented to the first three places in each category on each shoot, and for 1st place on the combined aggregate event.
  •  TOURNAMENT FEE       $35.00 each day (Registrations within the final two weeks are an additional $10  Register after Feb 1st = $45.00)
    • Payments are online for the northern venue, and cash or Check on site for the southern venue.
      • Cancellations up to Feb 1st will receive a full refund less 20%.  After Feb 1st there will be no refunds.
  • Arrive 1 hour before your start time for equipment inspection.
  • Arrow size must be 23/64 inches or smaller in diameter.  (Note: 2317s are too large, and cannot be used.)
  • The USA Archery dress code will be enforced. (Summary here)
  • Out of state shooters are welcome and eligible for medals.
  • If you shoot a good score, get your paper scorecard signed by a judge before you leave the event.  I recommend researching the national records before events, so you know if you have broken the record score.  (25m and Combined Rounds are not commonly shot, so records are very reachable in those formats.)  National record submissions must be made very quickly after an event.
  • This year’s event is sanctioned for national records, but not world records as is has been in the past.  We hope to resume that again next year.
  • For more information about what to expect at an ITAA event, read this helpful tournament primer.
  • The shooting line for each time slot has a maximum of number of spaces.  After that, registration for that line will be closed.
  • For 25m indoor shooting at a single 60cm target face, two archers may use the same target face.  So you may be sharing a face with an archer on the other A/B line.
  • A double-line 600 round takes around 3 hours shooting time to complete.  With early arrival for check-in, shooting, and tear-down, plan on the Saturday 600 to require around 5 hours of time in your day.
  • You may register multiple times to participate in multiple equipment categories, but not multiple age categories.  You may choose an age category that is ostensibly more competitive than your natural one, (i.e. shooters younger than senior can choose a higher category up to senior, shooters older than senior can choose a younger category down to senior), but you may only compete in a total of one age category.  Family discounts do not apply to categories beyond an archer’s first category.
  • Priority for registration will be given to an archer’s first category sign-up.  If space runs short, multi-category sign-ups will be removed to make space.  We usually fill the northern venue sessions.  Archers are encouraged to register for an additional category in the southern venue sessions.

The State Indoor Championship will be requiring one of the membership options for participation.  This means either having an full or temporary USA Archery membership, or a full NFAA membership.  Temporary memberships can be arranged on-site during check-in or online ahead of time.  Please be prepared to show your physical membership card at check-in.  (This is much easier to handle ahead of time.  Please let Tony know if you run into any difficulty.) All shooters will be eligible for medals regardless of registry method.  Shooters submitting claims for national record scores are required to carry USA Archery membership.   USA Archery Age Categories for 2020:

  • If you were born in 2008 or more recently, you are a Bowman
  • If you were born in 2006 or 2007, you are a Cub
  • If you were born in 2003, 2004 or 2005, you are a Cadet
  • If you were born in 2000, 2001, or 2002, you are a Junior
  • If you were born between 1971 and 1999, you are a Senior
  • If you were born between 1961 and 1970, you are a Master 50+
  • If you were born between 1951 and 1960, you are a Master 60+
  • If you were born between 1941 and 1950, you are a Master 70+



Setup of a big event can take nearly as long as the event does, and extra hands during setup can make it an easier process.  If you have time on the night before the northern 18m to set up at DuPage, contact Randy at info@illinoistargetarchery.org .



Registration is now open.  The registration links are at the bottom. The Indoor State Championship is always our most complicated event to organize, because there are so many pieces to it. As always, you can sign up for either venue (or both, if you’re competing in multiple equipment categories).

Southern Venue – February 1-2nd

Northern Venue – February 15-16th
