The NFAA offers two different types of programs, from general archery programs to more specialized bowhunter programs.


Archery Programs

Local Leagues

Participate in leagues at your local range, meet new people, and have fun shooting your bow! The NFAA offers a complete league program to help local archery clubs start indoor and outdoor leagues with templated scorecards, targets, awards, a handicapping system, and other supplies ready for use. NFAA Clubs and Shops can take advantage of the opportunity to earn extra funds by starting their own local league and tying it to the NFAA National League.

National Leagues

Compete against archers from around the country from your own hometown range! Shoot your scores anywhere or at any NFAA tournament. Ranges are NOT required to be affiliated with the NFAA, but host NFAA Clubs and Shops with certified NFAA ranges are eligible for cash rebates through the NFAA. League Champions in each division are awarded with the prestigious NFAA National League Champion belt buckle. An added bonus? Recognize your outstanding scores by showing off the Scoring Achievement Awards you have earned. The award(s) must be purchased through the NFAA Store before the corresponding award application can be completed.

Club/shop referral program

Earn money for helping to grow archery! Beginning in 2024, NFAA Clubs and Shops are eligible to earn referral funds based on the number of new NFAA members who join the club/shop over the course of a calendar year. NFAA Clubs and Shops are encouraged to recruit through 2024 with the first program funds to be disbursed in 2025.

The NFAA Judge Certification Program is available to educate members on the rules and procedures of NFAA rounds. NFAA members can either become Certified Judges to officiate at the local/state/sectional levels or they can become National Judges to officiate at all NFAA and NFAA Foundation events.
