Awards

All archers love badges! Part of the joy in archery is the personal challenge to improve your scores, through lots of practice and experience. Archery GB, CUB, and other archery bodies appreciate this and reward improvement with a variety of different awards and badges. Here is a guide to the main awards and badges you can claim if you so wish. Read on to see what is relevant to you, give it a go, and start collecting those badges to mark of your progress in our great sport. Information about any badges or awards not listed here can be obtained from the club records officer or governing body websites. If you know what badge you need information about, select it from the following list.

CUB Badges

FITATarget

The CUB badges award steady improvement in scores from beginner all the way to highly advanced archer. They may be obtained from the club records officer upon presentation of a qualifying score shot in competition or on an official club target day.

Classifications

Archery GB provides a series of different classifications to reward performance. These can be obtained by achieving three scores of the requisite standard (found in the Archery GB rules of shooting) during one season. Outdoors the classifications are as follows:

Indoors the classifications run from A-H.

Classifications up to and including Bowman are managed at a club level, and scores can come from any officially scored round. Those above are awarded by Archery GB directly, and scores must be shot at record status tournaments. If you wish to make a claim for any classifications, please contact the club records officer.

Handicap

Handicaps provide archers with a great way to monitor both overall progress and performance over the season, and can be calculated for both indoors and outdoors. They also allow all archers to compete as equals by providing an allowance for each round.

By monitoring all officially scored rounds from competitions over a season you can calculate, track, and improve your handicap. It is important that you use every score to get a true reflection of your shooting and progress.

If you wish to take part in the handicap scheme please contact the club records officer.
