    I just shot my first ATA shoot this new season... When I put my scores on my card, how do I figure my average? Do I add last seasons average to my latest shoot scores or is it a new season that starts with this score?
    Hope this is clear what I'm asking. I asked 2 people at Redlands Saturday and they were new and didn't know, so I'm hoping this helps others also.

    Thanks in advance. Rod

    Rod,

    New season, new scores. With the ATA, you don't carry anything forward from the old target year.

    Regards,

    Only this 2012 target year scores are used to figure this years average. The person who classifies you should/will/may use a combination of this years and past years scores to classify you for the current shoot.

    Yes, in ATA the current Target Year is used for the Averages while in PITA the last 1000 targets in Singles and last 800 targets in Doubles are used for the averages and this can span several Target Years.

    Rod,
    When the new target year starts, your present target year average starts
    from scratch.
    As an example, 2011 singles average was 91.5 over x number of shoots.
    You start 2012 and shoot two rounds of singles. One round is 92 and the
    next is a 94. That would give you a new average of 93 for 2012. Then
    as the target year goes along, your average will change accordingly.
    Hope this helps. The rulebook has which class you'll be put in according
    to average and known ability.
    A far fetched example would be if we looked at Big Leo, a AAA class shooter.
    Lets say he goes out for the first time in 2012 and shoots an 85 in singles.
    He'll still be a AAA class and not D class because of known ability.

    While your average starts over.. Most everyone I know that sits at the table to classify shooters will look at last years average and use in in assigning you to a class.

    My first single score this target year was a very high for me 98. So now I'm AA?

    Not necessarily.

    What was your average for 2011?

    What are your last 5 to 10 scores?
