Official rounds of the Florida Archery Association

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.  EVENTUALLY ALL OF OUR ROUNDS WILL BE HERE IN DETAIL.

Rounds are ordered by the typical seasons that FAA shoots.  State Championships are usually held Indoor (both)  (last weekend in January, first two weekends in February unless it is being held with the Sectional), International (early April), FITA Field (late April), Field (Memorial Day weekend), Sunshine State Games (June),  Unmarked 3-D (August), FITA (September), Target (900)  (October) and Marked 3-D (December).

 
Indoor Round.
1.The standard round shall consist of the 60 arrows shot at 20 yds in 12 ends of 5 arrows each with your target face being moved from top to bottom and from left to right after the sixth end.  The archers shooting the upper target shoot first.  Archers have 4 minutes to shot 5 arrows (any arrows not shot in the allotted time period are counted as missed).
2The Indoor target is blue with a white spot.  The archer has a choice of two different faces when shooting the Indoor round.  You may select a Five spot face or a single spot face.  Once an archer has selected a target face they may not change to the other type during that round.  The five spot face contains only the spot, five ring and four ring.  Any arrow not in a scoring area is counted as a miss.  The single spot contains scoring for the spot, five, four three, two and one.


FITA Indoor Round.
1.  FAA currently shoots a Fita I consisting of 60 arrows shot at 18 meters.
2.  There are 20 ends of 3 arrows each shot in two minutes.
3.  600 is a perfect score.
4.  Targets are scored 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1.  Compound shooters use the "x" ring for a 10 ring and the rest of the gold is scored as a 9.   Recurve shooters use the two inner rings as a 10 and the outer gold ring as a 9.
5.  Archer has a choice of shooting a single spot or a three spot multicolor face.
