USIAC Competition Format
USCA follows the international FISU competition format.  The format is as follows:
Recurve Division
Qualifying round - 70m on 122cm FITA target  face
Team and Mixed team round - 70m, Academic Target (aka hit/miss)
Elimination matches for individuals - 70m on 122cm FITA target using 'set system'

Compound Division
Qualifying round - 50m on Compound target face (5-10 scoring ring)
Team and Mixed Team round - 50m on Compound hit/miss target
Elimination matches for individuals - 50m on Compound target - regular scoring (no set system)

Bowhunter Division
Qualifying round - 50m on Compound target face (5-10 scoring ring)
Team and Mixed Team round - 50m on Compound hit/miss target face
Elimination matches for individuals - 50m on Compound target - regular scoring (no set system)
This division will receive National titles this year.  This division will not receive All-American, All-Academic honors in 2012 but will receive these honors in 2013 based on a participation formula.  Team round scores do not count toward the Overall Team trial this year.

Basic Bow Division
        Test event - 50m on 122cm target. 
This division will not receive National titles, All-American, All-Academic awards this year. Plaques will be awarded to the top 3.  Unless there are 9 or more archers, there will not be a team round.

Archers competing in the Bowhunter Division - Equipment Rules are posted on the USCA website in the Rules and Procedures Handbook

The USCA Dress code will be enforced - See Rules and Procedures Handbook at www.uscollegiatearchery.org


Small Team Substitution: Per changes in September, small teams who cannot make up either a men's or women's team in a discipline may combine up to two women and compete in the men's division of their respective discipline. This is a FISU allowance that the Board felt was fair to utilize. The board clarified in Feb that it is for all disciplines. A team cannot combine if they have enough to make a team in either gender in a discipline and they cannot sit out a man in order to put in a woman (ie if there are 2 recurve men and 2 recurve women, both men must shoot). Teams may not remove equipment to create a 'new team' as in extra compound archers cannot remove stabilizers and scopes for 12" stabilizer and pins and go into Bow Hunter. They cannot compete in Men's team compound, nor can compound shoot in Bow hunter team. All disciplines must be the same for the small team substitution

World University Team Trials
The World University team is a separate event which requires separate registration and additional fees and requirements.  The WUC team will be selected from the Double 70m round on Friday 18 May and Sat 19 May.  There are documents and deposits required to be received by USCA by strict deadlines. Archers are responsible for knowing and adhering to all rules and requirements.  Failure to do so will result in disqualification or ineligibility. Full information regarding the Trials is posted on the USCA website at www.uscollegiatearchery.org
 

Tournament Field of Play

The U.S. Intercollegiate Archery Championship (USIAC) is a prestigious  national championship event for the official clubs and teams of the US  Collegiate Archery Association (USCA). 

 

Members are vying for many honors and awards both as individuals and as teams.  USCA strives to maintain the decorum and validity of such events as well as maintain required risk management policies for the Association.

 

USCA welcomes alumni, parents, personal coaches, and friends as spectators  to the event. However, just as in other collegiate sporting events, only official USCA member athletes and coaches are permitted beyond the  spectator line at this event. 

Non-members are not permitted on the tournament field and must remain behind the  spectator line. Parents and personal coaches are able to interact with  athletes from that position.

 

If you are competing only for the World Team Trials, you must leave the  field each day when that competition is completed. The spectator area is available for you.

 

USCA has received complaints about large groups gathering in front of the  equipment line. During competitions, team round/mixed team round, and  elimination matches, archers who are not competing at that time must be  behind the equipment line. One coach is permitted in the Coach box  during team rounds.

 

These are World Archery rules. In fairness to all archers in the competition, the rules will be enforced by the Judges.
