These categories are eligible for the US Open (all qualify at the same distances and faces).
*** In AR1, women only qualify for US Open.

Each cell contains the male distance in meters (blue), female distance in meters (red), and target diameter in centimeters for a one spot target.

NAA Senior division is equivalent to FITA Senior division.

NAA Master division (aka Master 50+) is equivalent to FITA Master division.

NAA Junior division is equivalent to FITA Junior division.

FITA also recognizes 25 meters distance indoors, and even a combination 18/25 round, but they are rarely used in the US.

Archers who qualify for a particular division automatically are eligible for more competitive divisions if they choose to use them.

For example, cadets are eligible to compete as Junior or Senior, Master 70+ are eligible to compete as Master or Senior as well.
