Welcome San Diego Archers

San Diego Archers

SDA is a very active club, sponsoring two shoots a month and three major tournaments a year. A 28 target 3D Round on the first Sunday of the month and a Club Championship Qualifying Round (28 target Animal, Field or Hunter Round) on the third Sunday of each month.

Each June SDA hosts the “King Arthur’s Day Tournament”, a 40 target novelty shoot with a medieval theme.

Would you like to attend SDA tournaments for free?
SDA holds a work party at our ranges each month. Contact us to see whether there are work party positions available before the next tournament and attend your next SDA shoot for free!

Flying Pig Tournament Results – 1 March 2020

Thank you to EVERYONE who joined us and generously donated their time & money to the San Diego Archers fundraiser to benefit Triple B Adventures. We raised just under $2300 from registration fees, concessions, Flying Pig mulligans & prizes.
The San Diego Archers have matched this 100% and will donate $4584 to the Triple B Adventures

Triple B Adventures is a registered 501(c)(3) organization that offers active duty military and veterans a chance to reconnect with fellow vets who also feel alone, unconnected, and isolated. It is a chance for them to get together in a scenic environment and fresh air to share in stories, laughter and veteran humor without judgment. Specifically, the program addresses the strained and broken transitional system and aims to limit veteran struggles thereby reducing veteran suicides.

The San Diego Archers would like to offer a special thank you for donations from:

La Mesa Lumber
Performance Archery
Bow & Arrow Shop
Archery House
Lionheart Academy
Thank you again to all the volunteers who helped with registration, managing the donations, target set up & take down. We couldn’t do this fun event without you!

SUNDAY, March 15, 2020

The Field Round includes:
28 2D Paper Field Targets
4 Arrows per Target
Maximum Score: 560

The Field Round is a field archery tournament of 28 2D paper targets, firing 4 arrows per target from WHITE colored stakes for a total of 112 arrows.  There are 3 scoring zones on each target. Each arrow scores either 3 points for the black outer ring, 4 for the white middle ring or 5 the black bull’s eye. There is a center X ring to the inner 5 point zone.

Add up each arrow’s score to give a total score out of a maximum 560.

Field Rounds are at ‘even’ (5 yds) distances up to 80 yards, with the shortest distances measured in feet.

Targets may have different shooting positions:

1) All four arrows shot from one marked stake.

2) “Fan”: Each arrow shot from a different marked stake spread in a fan pattern, with each stake at the same distance to the target.

3) “Walk Up”: Each arrow shot from a different marked stake at decreasing distances to the target. For example, one arrow each at 45, 40, 35, 30 yards, or two arrows each at 45 and 40 yards.

For Youths:

  • Under 15, the longest distance is 50 yards.
  • For Cubs, under 12, the longest distance is 30 yards.
