An ASA state qualifier qualifies shooters for the ASA state championship. A state qualifier is very similar to most 3D shoots that you have attended. The main difference is that ASA classes and ASA rules are used. ASA qualifiers are scheduled over two days (Saturday and Sunday), but shooters only shoot one day. The two day scheduling is designed to make the shoot more available to the shooters. For example....some shooters may need to work on Saturday and some shooters may choose to attend church on Sunday. If a shooter shoots their scoring round on Saturday they are welcome to come back and shoot a fun (practice) round at a reduced fee on Sunday. If a shooter shoots a fun (practice) round on Saturday they are not eligible to shoot a scoring round on Sunday.

See all Questions & Answers from Iowa ASA Federation Facebook page answered by Mike & Tracy Smith, Iowa ASA State Directors:
Q1:How many qualifiers does a shooter have to attend to be eligible for the state championship?
A1: Shooting one state qualifier will qualify you for state. You may shoot as many as you want. You can still win prize money at any and all qualifiers.
From the Federation rules: All shooters eligible to participate in ASA State Championships will have qualified by shooting in at least one State Qualifier or in a designated Multi-State Qualifier for that state. State Qualifier Byes and all youth classes ( middle school, elementary school and junior eagle) are exempt from qualifying in their State Championship only.
Q2: so you can shoot 1 state shoot and get a invite for metropolis asa shoot ?
A2: You can qualify for the ASA Classic (national event) two ways. 1. By shooting your state championship. Which requires you to shoot at least one state qualifier. 2. By shooting two national Pro/Am events.
ASA CLASSIC CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING:
Professionals: Participate in three Pro/Am events.
Semi-Pros and Amateurs: Participate in two Pro/Am events or by qualifying and competing in their respective ASA Federation State Championship.
All Middle School, Elementary School and Junior Eagle competitors are eligible to participate in the Classic without qualifying.
ASA reserves the right to extend "at-large" invitations in all classes to shooters who are deemed worthy of competing, but who may have been prevented from regular qualifying due to their individual circumstances.
Q3: I know you said the State Championship shoots will be with Delta mckenzie targets, but will the qualifying shoots have the Delta mckenzie targets, or will it be whatever they have?
A3: The Federation rules state that any brand target can be used for an ASA qualifier.....even targets with center 12s only. The host club is responsible for supplying and setting targets. We realize most clubs in Iowa have Rinehart targets. We want the Iowa shooters to experience the ASA format so for this year the plan is for Tracy and I to supply the targets (McKenzie Targets) for the events.
Q4: Hi Mike and Tracy. I just want to confirm that an ASA membership is not required in order to shoot in one of the state qualifiers, but an ASA membership IS required to shoot in the Iowa ASA State Championship?
A4: That is correct!
Q5: Can I shoot in more than one state qualifier?
A5: You only need to shoot one state qualifier to qualify for the state championship. Just because you shoot one and qualify for the state championship does not mean that you cannot shoot other qualifiers. We award cash paybacks and shooters are still eligible to win cash awards at any and all state qualifiers.
Q6: What if I shoot in a multi-state qualifier?
A6: When you shoot a multi state qualifier you qualify for the ASA state championships in both states or in some instances 3 states.
Q7: How about the cash payouts?
A7: Last time we continued discussing state qualifiers and we mentioned entry fees.
Now let's talk about the cash payout for all $25.00 entry fees.
Here is how the cash payout is divided per class.
1-5 shooters in a class- 1 place (100% to 1st place)
6-10 shooters in a class - 2 places (split 70%/30%)
11-15 shooters in a class - 3 places (split 50%/30%/20%)
16-20 shooters in a class- 4 places (split 40%/30%/20%/10%)
21 and above shooters in a class - 5 places (split 33%/27%/20%/13%)
From a $25.00 entry fee $10 goes to the shooter payout, $10.00 goes to the host club and $5 goes to ASA.
Let's say there are 10 shooters in the Known 45 class. 10 shooters x $10.00 per shooter = $100.00 in the shooter payout for this class.
70% to 1st place = $70.00
30% to 2nd place = $30.00
