2011 OAS State Championships

California State Championships & Education Fundraiser!!!

We will be holding our first OAS State Championships in California this year.  This event will serve as a test run for next year when we roll out competitions in all of our other OAS Regions.

In addition to providing an opportunity for youth to compete in archery, we hope that students will be able to raise funds for their school through this event.  We realize that schools are facing more budget cuts and other challenges, so through archery we hope students can make a difference for their school.

The ranking round is our fundraising opportunity.  Students may find people to sponsor them and donate a set amount for every gold a student shoots.  The ranking round is 36 arrows, so there are a possible 36 gold hits (a score of 9 or 10).  A form is provided in the registration packet, but fundraising must follow your school’s procedures and all funds go directly to the school (coaches, please check with your school about fundraising procedures).

 

Who: All California OAS Schools are encouraged to compete.  Schools (Middle and High Schools) may bring as many students as interested.

When: Saturday, May 28th, 2011.  8am to 4:30pm
