01/26/18 – New Archery Format For Regional and State Competitions

January 30, 2018 Archery


To help you plan for upcoming postseason events, this post will cover the format details that the KHSAA will use to govern the Regional and State Archery competitions.

Information for coaches registering for the KHSAA Postseason (Regional and State) Tournaments:

  1. You must access the KHSAA website ( and register ALL of the archers that you want to be eligible to participate in the KHSAA Postseason Tournaments. Only archers listed here are eligible to participate in these events. This includes any potential substitutes.
  2. For the Regional and State Tournaments, two separate tournaments will be conducted, one tournament for boys and one tournament for girls.
  3. The team size for each event will be seven (7) to 12 archers. A school can enter no more than 12 archers in a tournament.
  4. The girls’ tournament is limited to female archers only.
    a. You can register seven (7) to 12 female archers in the high school division group.
    b. If you do not have enough female archers for a girls’ team, you can register them as individuals (under the high school division group), or add them to your boys’ team.
  5. The boys’ tournament may include male and female archers.
    a. You can register seven (7) to 12 male and female archers in the high school division group.
    b. The team must include at least one male archer.
    c. If your school has registered a girls’ team, female archers may not be added to the boys’ team.
    d. If you do not have enough male archers for a boys’ team, you can register them as individuals (under the high school division group). Or add female archers to your boys’ team, provided you have not entered a girls’ team.
  6. Female archers competing in the boys’ tournament will still be eligible for the girls’ individual championship, as their results will be manually combined with the female archers in the girls’ tournament to determine an overall winner. The results on the site will NOT combine the females in the boys’ tournament with the females in the girls’ tournament. Final combined results will be available at following the event.
  7. Female archers that compete in a girls’ regional tournament may not shoot in the boys’ state tournament.
