Judge Certification Course

posted Sep 7, 2011, 3:13 PM by Director USCAA   [ updated Sep 7, 2011, 5:17 PM by Webmaster USCAA ]

US Collegiate Archery has developed an online certification Judge Program for USCA members.  The purpose of the Judge Certification Program is to establish a pool of qualified judges who will support USCA at all levels of tournaments. 

Clubs may certify any current and active member as a USCA Judge which then alleviates the need to find an outside judge when conducting a local tournament.  For the Regional Intercollegiate Archery Championships (WRIAC, ERIAC, NRIAC, and SRIAC), USIAC and 3D USIAC, USCA will provide a list of certified judges who not only know and understand FITA rules, but who also have a working knowledge of the unique nature of college archery.

For 2011, all current USCA members, including athletes, coaches, and supporting members may take the course without any cost.  Members who pass the certification course are eligible to judge USCA competitions at local, state, regional and national events. Judges who are certified through other organizations may take the course at USCA's discretion and upon passing will receive a free USCA shirt when they judge at a USCA competition.

  • ·         Judges are required to be a minimum of 18 years of age.
  • ·         The certification is good for two years.
  • ·         Renewal will require passing an online quiz.
  • ·         Clubs may receive two free Judge shirts by having two members certified.  Additional shirts can be purchased for $25
  • ·         New judges who do not have any prior experience judging must 'shadow' a certified USCA judge for 1 event before judging on their own.
