# World archery (Fita) system:

Typically for FITA system is the use of A, B, C or D archers, depending on the number of archers per target. (In case of 2 archers per target A and B are used. 3 archers per target A, B and C are used. 4 archers per target A, B, C and D are used. )

Fita is used for indoor tournaments on 18 meters. Or for outdoor tournaments on 90, 70, 60, 50 and 30 meters. Depending on the situation a different sequence is used. In most situations 4 archers will shoot per target, 2 archers per target at the same time.

Every end is 3 arrows in 2 minutes, however, on the longer distances (90, 70 and 60 meters), two ends will be shot before counting the arrows.

In this case it is possible to shoot 6 arrows in a row in 4 minutes (2x2 minutes) or 2 separate series of 2 minutes per archer. This has impact on the sequence.
