2023 Competitive Advantage SHOWDOWN


The CA Showdown is the only USAT style outdoor event in Michigan. The USAT series is a circuit of events held across the nation to select the United States Archery Team. No event in Michigans currently provides and opportunity to practice for this intensive season.

This event offers an excellent opportunity for NASP and S3DA archers to experience an outdoor tournament with the inclusion of the Basic compound and PINS divisions.

Also for the first time at any event, we are offering special Developmental divisions for archers who would like to shoot a competition but may not be quite ready for the distances required for their regular category. Developmental divisions will be awarded medals, and will participate in match play if they have two or more archers. They will not have Grand Champion matches or be eligible for event records.


The Competitive Advantage SHOWDOWN takes place over 2 days, June 24th & 25th

This event is sanctioned by USA Archery, the organization recognized by the U.S. Olympic Committee as the National Governing Body of the Olympic sport of archery.  USA Archery is responsible for selecting and training men’s and women’s teams to represent the United States in Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, and Pan American Games, as well as World Championships, World Cups, and other international competitions.

The Competitive Advantage SHOWDOWN complies fully with both World Archery (the international governing body for the sport of archery for World Archery Championships, Olympic Games, and World Games, among others) and USA Archery rules. This event has been registered as a STAR FITA.

Free water provided for archers. Tents may be set up beginning at 6pm on Friday.


The tournament format is a 72 arrow Qualification Round on the first day, Day two features an additional 36 arrow qualification in the am followed by a cut to the top 8 per division for elimination match play.  Awards will be provided for the top 3 individuals in the elimination round for each class listed in the Division Classes below.
