How To Shoot a 900 Round

The 900 Round is a long to medium-distance competition that usually can be completed in about two and a half hours. It is shot over three separate distances (60, 50 & 40 yards). It consists of ninety total arrows, thirty at each distance, each worth a maximum of ten points. The maximum score is 10×90=900 points, which is where the name of the round is derived.

The 900 Round is a Target Round (i.e. not a Field Archery Round) meaning an archer shoots at only one target for the entire round and shoots from level ground. Multiple archers will shoot at the same 122cm target during a 900 Round.

A 900 Round consists of 5 ends of 6 arrows shot at three different distances for a total of 90 arrows at a standard 122cm 10-ring target: (5 ends x 6 arrows = 30 arrows) x 3 distances = 90 arrows. The three distances are 60 yards, 50 yards and 40 yards. A perfect score of 90 arrows all hitting the 10 ring would be 900 points.

There is a 5 minute time limit for each end — which is plenty of time to shoot slowly with proper control. There’s no need to rush.

Standard archery whistle commands are used to signal the start and end of the shooting time. Disobeying the whistle commands can result in disqualification, and a zero for your score, so stay safe.

The target face for the 900 Round is a 5 color FITA target face. At all three distances, this target should be 122cm in diameter.

For scoring, each ring from the outside is worth one additional point, except the innermost gold ring. This means that the rings are worth:

White 1 & 2 Points
Black 3 & 4 Points
Blue 5 & 6 Points
Red 7 & 8 Points
Gold 9 & 10 Points

There are some peculiarities with the innermost gold ring (called the “X” ring). “X”s or Spiders, as they as sometimes called, are used for tie-breaking purposes.  It is written on the scorecard as “X”, and is counted as 10 points. If two competing archers attain the same score at the end of the tournament, the victor is decided by who has more “X”s.

Scoring Etiquette

See the main Scoring Etiquette section.

Shooting Layout:
The ground is relatively flat, no trees or landscaping should obstruct the target in the shooting lane.
