NAA Senior division is equivalent to FITA Senior 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.
