USA CROSSBOW Inc. has been a recreational crossbow sport organization officially since 1960. When it was established as The National Crossbowmen of the USA (TNC).
In 1999, TNC was incorporated as The National Crossbowmen of the USA, Inc.
In 2017 TNC was officially re-branded as USA CROSSBOW Inc. in an effort to come up to date with other competitive sports in the US with an attempt to appeal to a wider audience.
USA CROSSBOW, Inc. is an organization of people interested in supporting the crossbow sport. Our aim is to perpetuate the history of the crossbow and enhance its use as a sporting instrument for target shooting as well as for hunting. At times we shoot along side of, but not in actual competition with archers. Membership is open to anyone interested in supporting the crossbow sport. It is not necessary to own a crossbow nor that you shoot in actual competition or hunt, although participation in the use of the crossbow is our main objective.
USA CROSSBOW members have the opportunity to compete at many local and regional tournaments, an Indoor and Outdoor National Championships, the World Archery Festival in Las Vegas, the NFAA Indoor National Championships, the WAF Archery Classic, and the International Bowhunting Organization 3D World Championships for sport crossbows.
World Championships (WC) for target crossbow are held every 2 years and the USA has an excellent track record of accomplishments at these events. Team Trials are generally held the year before a WC during the USA CROSSBOW Outdoor National Championships. All USA CROSSBOW members are welcome to shoot in these events.
