Coaches’ Need to Know Information
Coaches’ Shoot Off – To give more coaches a chance to participate, we will have our Coaches’ Shoot Off each day after the last flight is over. Coaches will have a chance at their own friendly bullseye competition, all while supporting youth archery. The top three highest scoring coaches from all three days will receive a prize. Coaches will get a practice round of five arrows at 10 meters. From 10 meters, each coach will shoot four arrows of the same color and one arrow of a different color, which is worth double the points to help break ties. Coaches will score each other. Your $10 donation to participate supports youth archery. You can register at Coaches’ Check In.
Check in / Coaches’ Information – While not required, we highly encourage all teams to pay their registration fees before the tournament ($30 for bullseye and $20 for 3D) online or by mail at PO Box 366, Jefferson City, MO 65102.

Coaches’ Check In will be inside the Branson Convention Center at the top of the escalator on the second floor next to the windows overlooking Branson Landing. Coaches will receive their scorecards and two coach lanyards for entry into the tournament. If you haven’t paid your registration fees online or by mail, you will be asked to pay at Coaches Check In. We will have invoices and/or receipts available for each school. Coaches’ Check In will be open on Wednesday, March 16 from 4-6 p.m. and opens Thursday through Saturday at 7 a.m.
