The ITAA is proud to hold this 2023 ITAA State Championships.  This is one of the best changes to compete against archers from Illinois and traveling from other states!  Registration is now open.  The registration links are posted at the bottom.  You may register for any or all 3 events (if age eligible), but each registration needs to be done separately.


All USA Archery sanctioned events adhere to the USAA Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies.  As with past tournaments, all coaches and event volunteers must demonstrate current SafeSport status before the event.

Reporting any concerning or unsafe conduct to the Center for SafeSport can be done at the USA Archery SafeSport resources web site.

Event Overview:

Our Indoor State Championships are back to being a combination of events. This year we have five events!:

  • JOAD 18 Meter State Championships: Friday evening
  • All-Ages 18 Meter State Championships: Saturday morning
  • All-Ages 25 Meter State Championship: Sunday morning (Northern venue only)

JOAD archers are always welcome to compete in the All-Ages tournament.  We recommend that all youth archers get advice from their instructors about readiness and volume of competition arrows.

If you’re available to help set up or tear down, we can use extra hands.


The early-bird fee for each 18 Meter event (Championship + Elimination Round) is $55 before Jan 28th, and $75 after that.

The fee for the Sunday 25 Meter event is $45 before January 28th, and $65 after that.

The northern venue is at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton.  We have used this for several years in a row now.

The southern venue is at Rigneys School of Archery in Glenarm, near Springfield.  They also hosted last year and have been participants for a long time.

The format for the JOAD Championships event is an 18 meter JOAD 600 Round.  The JOAD Round allows for the larger 60cm target for younger non-compound archers.

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).

The format for the All-Ages Championship event is 60 arrows at a standard 4-color World Archery target.

On Saturday afternoon there will be an elimination round head-to-head bracket event.  All participants in either of the JOAD or the All-Ages Championship events are eligible to compete in the elimination round.  The entry fee for either championship event covers entry into this round, as well.

If you are shooting at the southern venue and would like to participate in the elimination round the following day or the 25 Meter round Sunday, you can definitely do that.

We hope everyone is excited about the new format, the more participation we have in the new events the more likely we will continue to host them in the future.

If you have questions about events in general, your club leaders can steer you in a good direction.  Otherwise reach out to us at info@illinoistargetarchery.org


Skilled photography is difficult and time-consuming.  We highly appreciate volunteers lending their skills to our events.  Photos help spread the fun of archery beyond our community.  If you’re willing to be an event photographer, please reach out to info@illinoistargetarchery.org so that we can get credentials and protocols in place.

We’re still working on replacing our Shutterfly for showing photos.
