COVID-19 GUIDELINES

To follow the current health guidelines of the STATE OF ARIZONA, ARIZONA GAME AND FISH DEPARTMENT, AND BEN AVERY SHOOTING FACILITY; all attendees, including participants, spectators, staff, and coaches will be required to wear a mask at all times when at the 'facility'. The 'facility' includes the parking lot (outside of your vehicle), spectator area, check-in location, equipment inspection, field of play, and vendor areas. The only exception is for archers when they are at the shooting line.

  • Seating will be provided for the athletes with appropriate spacing to observe social distancing requirements.
  • Only 2 archers will be shooting per bale on separate lines.
  • Athletes are not to congregate in groups larger than 10 people. Bales will be set up accordingly.
  • Coaches will not be permitted on the field of play. No coach credentials will be available for this year.
  • Spectators will be restricted to a designated space behind archers seating. Canopies and chairs shall be provided by the spectators. Space is limited for non-athletes so we ask that youth archers travel with 1 family member or adult when possible.
  • Sanitizing of equipment will be completed between sessions.
  • Wash stations and sanitizing stations will be available throughout the range.

If the STATE OF ARIZONA, ARIZONA GAME AND FISH DEPARTMENT, BEN AVERY SHOOTING FACILITY or USA ARCHERY change the policies or restrictions currently in place that will have an impact on the archer or the tournament, then the athlete will be contacted via email.
