League Details


League scoring will be 0, 5, 8, 10 and 12 (the same as the scoring for 3D shoots).  This is done to allow archers to compare their performance during league with 3D shoots


3D League

League will be designated for Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Archers interested in League must sign up before league starts for a specific night and pay for the league up front ($60).  There will only be 60 shooters allowed for the Sign-up League. Only those archers signed up will be allowed to shoot at the designated time.  All divisions will be supported (Target, Bowhunter, Traditional).  Upon payment, 12 score cards will be given to the archer.  Only those cards will be used for the archer’s score.


Traditional and Youth League

Traditional League will occur on Tuesday nights at 6:45 PM.  The targets will be setup closer than targets are for Compound League. The Youth 3D League will start at 7:45 and is designed for youth ages 10-18. The targets will remain at the closer distance to ensure a more successful league experience. Archers must register and pay upfront ($60).  The scores in Traditional and Youth Leagues will be recorded separately from the other divisions/classes.

What: Sandhills is changing up their current format for their JOAD Team starting the winter of 2019.  JOAD will be administered by Level II or higher USA Certified Instructors.  JOAD moves from a recreational shooter to an intermediate-advanced level shooter interested in competition.  We will delve deeper into the Steps of Shooting focusing on different steps each session with practice through specific skills and drills.  We will work on affirmations, mental management, journaling, distraction training, and some equipment setup/repair instruction.  As the archer progresses, they will have the opportunity to shoot for predetermined scores based on a matrix set forth by USA Archery.  Once they achieve a specific score, they will earn a pin to place on a lanyard that can be worn on their hip quiver.  Once they have achieved all their lanyard pins, they will have the opportunity to shoot for their bronze, silver and gold Olympian Pins.  A Beginner Archery course is required for JOAD and the archer must have their own equipment.  The archer must also hold a current USA Archery, NFAA or ASA membership to participate.
