252 Award Scheme

252 Award Scheme

Aire Valley Archers is keen to encourage all members to develop their archery and have therefore introduced a 252 Award Scheme.

252 award scheme

The 252 award scheme is designed to help you practice your shooting at different distances and recognise your achievements.

A 252 must be the first or part of the first round shot on that day.

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 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 bowtype).

The Rules:

  • 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 and same bowstyles.
  • 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:
