S3DA Club- A Club is defined as that anyone can belong to this club, it can be run through an archery shop, archery range, church, home school group, etc.… There are no location parameters. To compete as a club for this division, you will need to have 8 competitors within a single age division, regardless of shooting class or gender, who are part of the same club group (i.e. archery shop, archery range, church, etc.). There is no maximum number of competitors on a club team. The club score will be calculated by adding the top five (5) scores shot by individuals from that team, without consideration of shooting class or gender.

S3DA Team- A Team is defined as all members belonging to a certain school or school district. A team will be comprised of a minimum of 8 competitors within a single age division, regardless of shooting class or gender, who all attend the same school. This would have to be verified by the school superintendent and will be kept on file in the S3DA office. There is no maximum number of competitors on a team. The team score will be calculated by adding the top five (5) scores shot by individuals from that team, again without consideration of shooting class or gender.
