REGISTER NOW for 2012 CA State Championships

Registration is now open for our 2012 CA State Championships!

This year Glendale High School will be hosting the event in their Moyse Football Stadium.  Glendale has been building a strong team so the home-court advantage will be an extra bonus.

The competition is two days.  The first day, Saturday, is open to all OAS archers and is an opportunity for archers to earn individual and team medals.  The second day, Sunday, is our League Championships where schools compete as a 10 archer team using our League Match format.

WHEN:  Saturday and Sunday, May 5th and 6th, 2012 (8am-4pm each day)

WHERE: Glendale High School, Moyse Football Stadium
(parking at corner of Broadway and Verdugo)
1440 E. Broadway, Glendale , CA 91205

A complete schedule can be seen HERE or seen below.

An example fundraising form has also been included in the registration packet.  We know that many schools are facing more budget cuts so we hope that this competition can serve as an opportunity for students to raise funds for their school.  All fundraising should follow your school’s guidelines and all donations should go directly to the school.

The Early Registration Deadline is Monday, April 9th, 2012, so get your registration packets completed soon!
