Tournament Rules and Classes

RMAA 3D Rules

All archers are required to know the rules that go along with their class.

  • An open class means you shoot what you bring.
  • Open fixed pins class means the sight on the bow has fixed pins that will not be moved at all during the competition. Magnification is not permitted. Clarifiers or verifiers in the peep are not considered magnification and are permitted. A front stabilizer or a system including quick releases, enhancers, and/or weights may be used, but may not exceed twelve inches (12”) in total length from the tip of the stabilizer/system to the point of attachment on the front of the riser. A single rear stabilizer up to twelve inches (12”) in length (including weights) may be used regardless of the point of attachment to the bow. 
  • Open pins class means A moveable sight may be used without being locked down. All other Pins rules will apply. (see above)
  • Just For Fun Class – This class is considered an “open class”; you can shoot any type of equipment. You will be able to pick who you want to shoot with up to 5 people max. However, Shooters that choose this class will not have their scores counted towards any class standings and you will not be eligible for awards.
  • Shoot within a 2’ radius of the stake, unless stated otherwise in the shooter’s meeting before the event.
  • We are willing to offer any of these classes in Unknown as long as there are a minimum of 3 archers who want to shoot the class.
  • If a class does not have 3 shooters, it may be absorbed into the closest class available.
  • Pro Shootoff for the top 5
  • Shoot-offs at the 4th 3D – In addition to Pro’s shoot-offs, we will expand the shoot-offs to some of the larger classes at the discretion of the board.
