All OAA member clubs are required to have at minimum two (2) certified Club Judges, this is to ensure all events being hosted at the club are being run in conjunction with OAA Rules and Guidelines. If your club is looking at hosting the O.A.A. Indoor Championships, your club will have to have a minimum of one Club Judge to host the event. The Associationâ€™s goal is to have a minimum of one Judge at each club to make the clubs safer and the archers more knowledgeable of the different type of competitionâ€™s rules.
