EVENT RULES

1.     Two whistle blasts = archers to the line. One whistle blast starts shooting and the clock. Three blasts = retrieve arrows and score. Five or more blasts = Emergency; stop shooting. STOP IMMEDIATELY.

2.     You, the archer, are responsible for your equipment to comply with NFAA rules. It is also your responsibility to confirm you are shooting in the correct style and division. If you are registered in the wrong division or style, this must be corrected prior to shooting your first arrow for score. Archers may only register in ONE division, ONE style, and ONE location and will remain in the same division for the duration of the event. Archers that register in more than one location or division will have the additional registrations disqualified and will forfeit any registration fees paid.

3.     Maximum arrow shaft diameter allowed in NFAA competition will be 0.422 inches, with point diameter not to exceed 0.425 inches. The shaft diameter will include any wrap placed on the arrow and will include the size of the nock and the nock insert. If the arrow wrap, nock, or nock adapter exceed 0.422 inches in diameter and are embedded in the scoring area of the target, the arrow shall not be scored and will be reshot.

4.     No archer shall draw a bow in any manner that if accidentally released could fly beyond a safety zone or a safety arrangement over shoot area, backstop, etc. A warning will be given on the first instance. Second instance will require removal of archer from event.

5.     Important for 2020! Protests arising at any tournament location will be discussed and ruled upon by a national committee consisting of the Tournament Director, NFAA President, One (1) councilman, and two (2) Directors, available during all scheduled event dates. The Councilman and Directors will be chosen at random by the Tournament Director. A list of the members of this committee will be published on the event website.

6.     Any individual wishing to file a protest against another archer must inform that individual in the presence of a tournament official (at their event location) that a protest will be filed. Both individuals have the right to be present (via phone) during the meeting of the protest committee. All protests must be submitted within one hour after the line on which the alleged offense occurred. A $50.00 National protest fee must accompany the written protest, which will be refunded if the protest is upheld. No protest that is filed after the time limit will be considered or acted on.

7.     Important for 2020! Electronic scoring will be utilized for all event locations. In the event that data service or a device is not available at the location or for a scoring group, it will be the archer’s responsibility to follow the alternative directions. The electronic scoring will be considered an official form of scoring and failure to comply may result in disqualification of that day’s scores. Event staff will be available during all event dates to assist with electronic scoring.

8.     Important for 2020! For Junior divisions, an archer’s age will be determined by their actual birth date and their physical age as of the first day of the originally scheduled competition, March 21, 2020. For Adult & Senior divisions, an archer’s age will be determined by their actual birth date and their physical age as of the first day of the newly scheduled competition, December 3, 2020.

9.     Any equipment that impairs the hearing of the competitor will not be allowed on the shooting line. This is a safety issue and will be enforced.

SCORING RULES

1.     Each archer will shoot one standard NFAA Indoor Round each day, for two days during their registered event dates. Each standard round will consist of 60 arrows shot at a distance of 20 yards. Cubs will shoot at 10 yards. Each round shall consist of twelve ends of five arrows per end.

2.     Target:

a.     The target shall be 40 cm. in diameter and shall be of a dull blue color. The spot shall be two white rings with blue X in center ring. All inscribed scoring rings shall be white.

b.     The bullseye shall be 8 cm. in diameter with a 4 cm. X-ring.

c.     If using the NFAA Indoor Five Spot Target: An archer may shoot any of the 5 spots in any order and shoot as many arrows into any one spot as the archer desires, not to exceed the prescribed number of arrows per end. Scoring shall be five points for the combined 4 cm. X-ring and 8 cm. white ring and four points for the combined 12 cm. and 16 cm. blue rings.

3.     An archer must straddle the shooting line.  A disabled archer shooting from a chair or wheelchair will place the chair legs or wheels straddling the shooting line.

4.     The time limit shall be four minutes per end.

5.     In the event of equipment failure, the archer will have fifteen minutes repair time without holding up the tournament. One practice end will be allowed. The archer shall be allowed to shoot any arrows he or she did not shoot during the fifteen minutes repair time, after the final end.

6.     Prior to each shooting line there will be 2 ends of official practice on your assigned target. Scoring begins immediately after the two practice ends; no additional practice ends will be shot.

7.     Scoring:

a.     The scoring is 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 from the spot out.

b.     Important for 2020!  X-rings shall be counted and used as tie breakers and will be considered part of the official score. Additionally, inside-out X-rings will be counted and only used in the case of a tie-breaker for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in the Championship flight.

If a tie still remains, additional tie breakers will be as follows: 1st day inside-out x-count; 2nd day inside-out x-count; 1st day – first end dropped inside-out x (ends 1-12); 2nd day – first end dropped inside-out x (ends 1-12).

c.     Archer shall record X’s, inside-out X’s, and the numeric value of each arrow in each scoring box before touching or drawing any arrows from the target.  No archer may touch the target face before all arrows are scored.

d.     An arrow cutting two rings shall be scored in the ring of greater value. Scoring is determined by the position of the shaft. In all NFAA Rounds, an arrow shaft need only touch the line to be counted in the area of next higher value.

e.     In the event the scoring ring has become distorted due to torn or missing paper, the scorer shall visually reconstruct the natural arc of the scoring ring to determine the value of the arrow(s).

f.      Witnessed bounce outs or arrows passing completely through the target will be re-shot.

g.     Hits on the wrong target will be scored as misses.

h.     When an arrow is dropped while the archer is in the act of shooting, he/she may shoot another arrow in place of the dropped arrow if any portion of the dropped arrow is within ten feet of the shooting line.

i.       If an archer shoots more than the prescribed number of arrows in an end, the excess arrow or arrows of higher value will not be scored. A penalty of one scoring ring (1 point and 1 X if applicable) will be assessed for each arrow shot over the prescribed number of arrows.

j.       If an archer shoots less than the prescribed number of arrows in one end he/she may shoot his/her remaining arrows if the omission is discovered before the end is officially completed; otherwise they shall be scored as misses.

k.     The target group, which generally consists of four archers, will select a score caller, two scorekeepers, and a target captain. The target captain shall be the judge of disputed arrows on his/her target.  When a captain’s arrows are in question, the majority of the group shall decide the status of the target captain’s arrows.  When a line judge has been appointed and an appeal is made to the line judge, the line judges call will be final.

l.       Scorecards must have all totals correct and in the proper place. Both score keepers and the archer must sign the scorecard. A scorecard submitted with incorrect total(s) may be disqualified.

m.   Important for 2020! Colored scorecards should be turned in to the tournament official (at each location) within 30 minutes of the end of the assigned round. White scorecards should be kept by the archer until the official scores are posted at the conclusion of ALL location dates (approximately December 28, 2020).  In the rare occasion that a scorecard is misplaced, it is the archer’s responsibility to submit a copy of their white scorecard for score verification. All scoring on the official scorecards must be completed in ink. Any changes on the official scorecard must be agreed upon and initialed by all archers in the scoring group. Any archer turning in an incorrect scorecard will be subject to disqualification.

Once registration closes for each event, the host location will receive a list of registrants with their contact information. They will be responsible for assigning line times and notifying the archers.

Some clubs may post their scheduled shooting times in advance on their event website or Facebook event. Others may not decide until registration closes in late November. Please reach out to your host location directly for more information.

Electronic scoring will be done on an individual's smartphone or tablet (IOS and Android). Scores can be input after each end of scoring or they can be input altogether at the conclusion of the round. The NFAA will also provide an alternative method for the few individuals who do not have access to a device. No results will be final until all official scorecards have been received.

Scoring FAQ

Scoring Quick Guide

Frequently Asked Questions: Online Scoring

IANSEO ScoreKeeper can be downloaded from Google Play (Android) or the Apple AppStore (iPhone or iPad).

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.ianseo.scorekeeperlite

Apple: https://itunes.apple.com/app/ianseo-scorekeeper-lite/id912947613

You will not be able to pull up your scorecard on the Scorekeeper app until you receive your paper scorecard at your shooting location. Once you receive your scorecard, please follow the directions below.

1. Start the Scorekeeper app on a device and the screen below should be displayed.

2. Have your scorecard available for this step! Click the Scan QR button and scan one of the square QR codes (Day 1 - left side; Day 2 - right side) located at the bottom of the scorecard; please pay attention to the distance (1st or 2nd round/distance = 1st or 2nd day).

3. If all the information in the QR code is correct, a screen similar to the one below will be shown.

4. Make a quick verification of the information displayed. It should match the information on your scorecard.

5. Press the Save button to continue and, after that, press the Yes button to confirm the values.

At this point, you are ready for scoring!

1. If you have already setup a previous tournament or a previous round through the App, click on Menu (top right).

2. Press Setup and allow the App to go back to the Setup screen.

3. Next click the Scan QR button and scan the QR code on your scorecard.

4. If all the information in the QR code is correct, a screen similar to the one below will be shown. (insert screenshot of Competition page)

5. Make a quick verification of the information displayed. It should match the information on your scorecard.

6. Press the Save button to continue and, after that, press the Yes button to confirm the values.

At this point, you are ready for scoring!

During the setup or the scoring process, if there is any problem with data connection (public Wi-Fi or personal data), a screen similar to this one below will appear. You can go ahead shooting and scoring on paper. As soon as the problem of connection is solved, you can use the App and insert all the arrow values already scored.

If a single value needs to be changed, that value can be selected by clicking on it (will highlight red). After the last archer has been scored for the end, a summary of the end is shown. In the summary screen, it is possible to change an archer score for the current end by clicking on the archer name.

At this point, you can change scorecard (Edit Scores) or go ahead with the next end (Continue).

During the setup or the scoring process, if there is any problem with data connection (public Wi-Fi or personal data), a screen similar to this one below will appear. You can go ahead shooting and scoring and, as soon as the problem of connection is solved, you can use the App and insert all the arrow values already scored.
A screen will popup that prompts you that the "end is locked and cannot be changed". This means that the session is locked and the archer cannot score. This situation happens if the shooting time allowed for your round has either ended or has not started. It is important that you use the app to input your scores during the time frame of your event.
Check with another person on your scoring team to see if they will allow you to input your scores into the app with your QR code at the end of the round when they are finished with their own. You can also check with another family member (spouse, parent, child, grandchild) to see if you can use their device during the round or after. Your club may also have a device that you can borrow. The electronic scoring will be considered an official form of scoring and failure to comply may result in disqualification of that day's scores.
You will NOT be inputting inside-out x's on the scoring app. These will be available for tie-break on the physical scorecards only (XO = inside-out x).
