The Spider Cup Series was created to entice local shooters to compete in a competition style archery event. There will be six separate tournaments that will accumulate the overall champions for the year. The idea is to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere, while also giving archers a chance to feel the thrill of competition.

Overall Ranking

 
Overall-Ranking-Icon.png

Every archer will receive a ranking for each tournament shot. To be considered for overall champion an archer MUST shoot at least three tournaments, AND shoot all archery disciplines at least once. If an archer shoots more than three tournaments, the best ranking from each archery discipline will be used to calculate the overall ranking.

For the field and indoor tournaments, the archer’s score from that tournament will determine the tournament ranking. For example if an archer ranks 5th in scoring, that will be the tournament ranking used to calculate the overall ranking.

For the outdoor tournaments, the archer’s tournament ranking will depend on qualification, match play and single arrow average (single arrow average is the average score of each arrow shot during match play). The weight of each factor will be 40% for qualification, 40% for match play and 20% for single arrow average. The tournament ranking will be calculated as such:

  • (Qual. rank * .40) + (MP rank * .40) + (SAA * .20) = Tournament Rank

Match Play Rank: Any archer eliminated before the semi-finals will be ranked according to their single arrow average from the round in which they were eliminated. For example, the archer eliminated in the 1/4 round with the highest SAA among all the eliminated archers will have a match play rank of 5th.

The overall ranking will be calculated by adding the archer’s best tournament ranking from each of the three archery disciplines. Therefore, the best overall ranking an archer can receive is 3.

In the case of a tie, the Archer’s ranking from their best outdoor round will be used as the tiebreaker. If the tie still remains the Single Arrow Average from the same round will be used as the tiebreaker.
