There are 26 qualifying events on the 2021 schedule and the state director will name those events on the schedule when it is published. Shooters must use their scores from a minimum of  five of those events plus the state tournament in order to qualify for Shooter of the Year.


In order for a shooter to be eligible to be awarded SOY recognition, the following conditions must be met:

  1. The shooter must be a member of ASA.

  2. The shooter must shoot in FIVE or more qualifying events in the SAME class.

  3. The shooter must shoot in the state tournament. 


In order for a class to be recognized for SOY, the following conditions must be met:

  1. There must be at least THREE shooters with FIVE or more qualifying scores in the class.

  2. The class must be  listed above.


SOY winners will be calculated using the shooter’s top FIVE scores plus the shooter’s score at the State Tournament.  If the shooter does not participate in the state tournament then he or she is not eligible for the SOY award, however, his or her absence will not affect the award for the class should there be fewer than three shooters at the state tournament.  Should there be a tie between shooters, then the shooter’s cumulative number of 12s from the qualifying events will break the tie.  Should the shooters be tied on both score and number of 12s, then the number of 12s from the 6th highest score will be added to break the tie.
