All archers will shoot a Qualifying Round (18m FITA I Indoor Round) of 60 arrows at 18 meters at a Vertical 3-spot 40cm face. At the completion of the Qualifying Round categories will be cut to 16 archers for the Round Robin matches. In categories with fewer than 16 archers, the category will be cut to 8. If there are fewer than 8 archers in a category, it will be cut to 4. Any position ties will be resolved according to FITA Rule 18.104.22.168. Ties for entrance into the Round Robin matches will be resolved according to FITA Rule 22.214.171.124.1. In categories of 16, each archer will shoot against every other archer in the category once (15 matches). In groups of 8, each archer will shoot against every other archer in the category twice (14 matches). In groups of 4, each archer will shoot against every other archer four times (12 matches).
FITA Rule 126.96.36.199 states Vertical triple faces will be mandatory for the Indoor World Championship. Therefore, the U.S. World Trials format will uphold FITA Rule 188.8.131.52 and make it mandatory that all archers shoot at a Vertical 3-spot 40cm face.
In the effort to keep the event on schedule and save time, archers will be permitted to inspect their targets during the tournament and change them if deemed necessary by the judges.
