WHAT IS HAPPENING?
GET READY FOR OUR BIGGEST EVENT YET! THREE WORLD-CLASS EVENTS WILL TAKE PLACE OVER A SPAN OF 15 DAYS IN SEPTEMBER 2021. THIS IS LIKELY THE ONLY TIME THAT THESE THREE EVENTS WILL EVER TAKE PLACE BACK-TO-BACK IN A SINGLE LOCATION. TOP-RANKED ARCHERS AND DIGNITARIES FROM AROUND THE GLOBE WILL CONVERGE IN YANKTON, SOUTH DAKOTA TO TAKE PART IN THESE PRESTIGIOUS EVENTS.
PROF DR UGUR ERDENER
WORLD ARCHERY PRESIDENT
“On behalf of the athletes and archery community, I’d like to express my thanks to Bruce Cull and his team for taking on the challenge of hosting two hugely important events in a very short space of time. International competition has successfully returned in 2021 and the Yankton hub at the end of the year will ensure we complete this important Olympic season just as positively as it has begun.”

We have the strong support of the Yankton community and the state of South Dakota, and we’re committed to building a safe and secure environment for the world’s best archers to perform at these two marquee international events that will close this exciting season.”
