Who we are.

The Professional Archers Association was formed to add credit to the professional ranks. Unlike alot of organizations that just require the shooter to pay a registration fee, we at PAA want to make it so that the Pro label is earned and not bought.
 
Each new member will have to start out at the bottom and work their way up to the top. Each member will start out as an ametuer, no matter what class they shoot. After enough points are earned the shooter will move up to Semi-Pro.
 
To move up to the Pro ranks from here two things will have to occur. One the shooter will have to earn enough points and two, the shooter must shoot the Elite class.
 
The point system will be as follows:
Ametuer - 0 - 499
Semi-Pro - 500 - 999
Pro - 1000 & up
 
Each member will be ranked in the class that they shoot. Points will be awarded on placing and the type of tournament shot.
 
Points for tournaments as follows:

The Professional Archery Association will also be putting on a tour for the 2006 season. We are currently in talks with business to help increase the payout purse for the Elite class and the trophy hand out for the rest of the classes. The businesses that we are looking at are within the archery community and also outside of the archery world. This was done to give archery a wider base of support to help bring professional archery up to the level that other professional sports are at.
 

Points will only be given out twenty places. Any member that finishes out of twentieth place will not recieve any points.. Each member will need to earn 500 points to be able to move up to the next level.
 
** Now through the 2006 season, any member that can show documentation of past tournaments can sumit them for points. Documentation must be offical score sheets from the host club. No other way will be accepted. This offer will end at the end of the 2006 season.

May Your Arrows Fly Straight and True.
