February Indoor Tournament

All experience levels welcome
The Hello Yellow Indoor Tournament Series consists of 5 USA Archery sanctioned tournaments held at Sattva Center for Archery Training in Florence, MA. Athletes are invited to register for one or more of the Tournaments in the Series. Archers looking to be eligible for Series Prizes must compete in 2 or more tournaments in the Series.
Each Hello Yellow Indoor tournament is a World Archery (FITA) 600 round. The “600” refers to the best possible score; in order to achieve a 600, an athlete needs to shoot 60 arrows in the 10 ring. Archers shoot 20 ends, 3 arrows at a time, with a 10-minute break after the 10th end.
While USA Archery sanctions each tournament, the Series is not sanctioned. Awards for each tournament are handed out after the last scoring end of each individual tournament. Sattva calculates and announces scores 5-10 minutes after all athletes hand in score cards. No waiting around!
Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
Hello Yellow Tournament Series utilizes a handicap system designed to allow all Disciplines, Age Classes and Gender to compete together. The handicap system rewards archers who improve their scores significantly over the course of the 5 tournaments and levels the playing field between disciplines. A young barebow archer, for example, could win the Series because the handicap will level their performance with a seasoned compound athlete. We developed the handicap here at Sattva based on systems used in archery in Australia, the UK, and in different sports such as Golf.
New to Tournaments
Let us know if you are new to tournaments and we will go out of our way to make sure you feel welcome and informed. Sattva staff offer a pre-tournament orientation designed to walk new or inquisitive tournament archers through the tournament process. The orientation covers: timing system; equipment inspection; scoring; rules and etiquette for tournaments; and an orientation to the Sattva facility. Let the Sattva staff know that you want an orientation when you check in.
We also recommend that you return to the Hello Yellow Tournament Series webpage and scroll to the bottom to read through the FAQs.
What’s my Age Class?
Your age class is based on the age you turn by the end of the calendar year. For example, if you are turning 50 on 10/23/21, then you should be in the age class for 50 year olds. Fifty is also helpful example because, at 50 years old, you can choose to participate in the Senior Class (ages 21-49), or Masters 50+ (over the age of 50). The easiest way to determine your age class is to use USA Archery’s Age Class Calculator: Go to their tournament rules page and then scroll down to find the calculator.
All Hello Yellow tournaments offer a Non-Competitive class designed for those interested in shooting in a tournament but not “quite” ready for the requisite distance or added pressure. You get to choose the distance and target face size in the Non-Competitive class while shooting and scoring by the same rules as everyone else. Non-Competitive athletes are not ranked with those competing for rank. Although prizes are not awarded in the Non-Competitive class, this offers a rich opportunity to boost confidence levels for the hesitant athlete.
Both competitive and non-competitive archers can earn JOAD/AAAP pins during Hello Yellow tournaments.
