How Do I Make the Cadet US Archery Team?

To make the Cadet USAT, you need to be ranked using a ranking system. The NRS is examined in this post for Seniors. For Cadets, it changes a bit.

  1. Average of the athlete’s placement in the ranking and elimination rounds at Outdoor US JOAD National Championships
  2. The final placement in the qualifying round will be used for all USAT Qualifier Series

Events

To be part of the USAT Cadet team, you need to attend these events:

  1. Outdoor US JOAD National Championships Mandatory Event
  2. USAT Qualifier Series Events Minimum Of Two Events

If you complete more than two events in that year, the best qualifying round finishes will be used for the Cadet USAT Rankings.

Example

JOAD Nationals

Ranking Round: 4
Olympic Round: 6
Average Rank: 5

USAT Qualifier 1

2nd

USAT Qualifier 2

1rst

USAT Qualifier 3

4th

Final Ranking Score

5 + 1 + 2 = 8 (did not use 4th place finish)

Lower is better

So Who Makes the USAT Cadet Team

  1. The final top five ranked Cadet archers, per class and division and who are still eligible to compete in the Cadet division the following year.
  2. The final rankings will be released after all USAT Qualifier Series Events and Outdoor US JOAD National Championships

What Are the Other Requirements?

  1. A valid USAA Membership is required at the time of the event in order to receive any Cadet USAT Ranking points.
  2. Cadet archers must be a member of a JOAD club to be eligible.
  3. USAA members in good standing
  4. U.S. citizen
