The World Archery 3D Championships features competition in four classes, each with separate divisions for men and women.

In this video, we explain the basic rules that separate the Barebow, Compound, Instinctive and Longbow classes. These classes exist within other organizations, but the World Archery rules for each are unique.

World Archery’s 3D Championships are held every other year in different parts of the world. A competition round features 24 3D animal targets, which archers must shoot two arrows at per round.
