2023 Federation Update
All ASA State Federation Regional & State Directors and State Representatives,
We want to thank Dee for his dedication to the ASA Federation. Dee’s dedication along with your efforts have allowed ASA to become the leading 3-D organization it is today.
A change of ownership and management often brings about a season of change. Along with Dee and Don’s retirement, we will continue to transition Mike from his daily management of the ASA to the role of a consultant for the foreseeable future. Mike will also continue as the “voice” of the Pro Shoot Down.
As Dee mentioned in his email, Scott Parrott will now be the ASA National Federation Director. Scott has been the Georgia ASA Federation State Director for some time. Scott has shot ASA as a Senior Pro, as well as owned and operated the River Bottom Outdoors ASA club for many years. Scott recently retired after 38 years as a Battalion Chief with the Heard County Fire & Emergency Services.
Scott has agreed to join ASA as a full-time employee directing the ASA Federation as well as assuming the duties of the ASA Pro/Am Tournament Director. In the next few weeks Scott will be contacting each State Director to answer any questions you have as well as discuss your ideas on how we can serve you better as he shares with each of you his vision for the Federation going forward.
Again, we want to extend our sincerest thanks and appreciation to Dee for his stewardship of the Federation which has grown exponentially under his direction and for his commitment to 3-D archery. We now look to ASA’s future as Scott, Jenny, Ken and I look forward to working with each of you in the years to come.
All our best to Dee and Marcia,
Archery Canada Renews Partnership with ASA
OTTAWA, ON – Following ASA (Archery Shooters Association) tours in both Alberta and Ontario, Archery Canada and ASA are thrilled to announce the renewal of their partnership. This comes after the initial agreement in early 2020. As an organization devoted to promoting all types of archery across the country, Archery Canada saw great collaboration with ASA over the last couple years and looks forward to seeing further exciting developments. The ASA has established itself as a leading force in the movement to bring 3D archery to the mainstream.
“The Archery Shooters Association is very proud to continue our affiliation with Archery Canada,” comments Michael Tyrell, President of ASA Archery. “In the last three years, we have worked together to expand 3D competition, in addition to their commitment to supporting all disciplines of archery. Over the last 25 years, ASA has had the pleasure of hosting many of Canada’s best archers. Our classes currently feature two of the very best; in Women’s Pro, Erin McGladdery from Saskatchewan, and in Known Pro, Chris Perkins from Ontario, who along with many others, are showcasing the archery talent in Canada. We look forward to working together for the future of archery in Canada and the USA for many years to come.”
Under the new agreement, Archery Canada becomes the sole representative of ASA in Canada. The organization will continue to promote the ASA format through the provincial and territorial associations, as well as the broader archery community. Supporting development opportunities for 3D archers and encouraging those at the provincial level will remain a priority for the organization as well.
Canadian clubs will have the option to register ASA shoots through the Archery Canada tournament calendar. Registrants with Archery Canada through their provincial or territorial associations will now be able to compete in ASA State Qualifier and State Championship tournaments in the USA exempt from other fees beyond the entry fees. ASA members will have similar access to Canadian ASA qualifiers and championships as they are developed and promoted.
The new agreement does not change Archery Canada’s commitment to following World Archery rules for its major national tournaments, but gives member clubs and associations the opportunity to develop new tournaments following ASA rules and regulations.
Both organizations are looking forward to seeing the development of ASA over the coming years.
