As we prepare for another year of Tournaments, please keep in mind the USA Archery Dress Code which changed in 2017. There were many Dress Code issues that occurred at Tournaments which could have been easily avoided with a little planning by Archers.
Coaches, Parents, and Archers – Please take the time to read and understand the USA Archery Dress code prior to attending an event in 2018.
The underlying intent of the dress code is to have archers display a professional and athletic image. The 2017 revision has added the restriction of “Leggings (tight fitting / yoga-type stretch pants)”. USA Archery’s interpretation of “athletic image” is along the lines of Professional Golf, NOT Olympic Track and Field.
( Rule of Thumb – Get Dressed and stand in front of the mirror. Touch the Sky, Touch your Toes, if anything Shows, Change Your Clothes. )
Below I have attached a copy of the USA Archery Dress Code, which will be in Effect at all USA Archery Sanctioned events.
Congratulations to our 2017 Iron Archers (Right to Left)
• Wade Flake – Gold
• Eric Bennett – Silver
• Kevin Hensberry – Bronze
• Ken Brunko – Copper
• Ashlyn Merritt – Yellow
• Kim Hicks – Red
• Kiel Amundsen – Blue
• Jacob Hindman – Black
