252 Award Scheme
Aim4sport AC is keen to encourage all members to develop their archery and have therefore introduced a 252 Award Scheme.
The 252 award scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and recognise your achievements.
After 6 sighters, you shoot 3 dozen arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance. The round can be shot at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yds/meters. With the aim of scoring 252 or better (alternative scores apply for other bow types). If you achieve the score twice you can claim a badge.
It is an award scheme in use at many archery clubs in the UK and applies to all archers, irrespective of age, ability or bow type (scores differ by bow type).
- Six sighters to be followed immediately by three dozen scored arrows.
- 5-zone scoring (Gold = 9, Red = 7, Blue = 5, Black = 3, White = 1) using a 122cm target face.
- The three dozen arrows may be shot alone or as the first three dozen of a longer Imperial round.
- Badges must be claimed in sequence.
- Scores need to be achieved twice to qualify for the award.
- Qualifying scores for a given distance must be shot on different days
- To make an award claim 2 signed and witnessed score sheets needs to be submitted to the club’s Records Officer.
The awards are as follows
|Distance (yds/meters.)||Award||Recurve Score||Compound Score||Longbow Score||Barebow Score|
Badges will be presented to successful archers at a club competition following submission of 2 scorecards, or can be collected from the records officer if unable to attend the competition.
