AGB Progress Awards

Canterbury Archers encourages its new junior and adult members to develop their archery skills through the Archery GB Progress Awards. These awards offer a good starting point and lead towards other individual achievement awards such as the 252 Achievement Scheme and AGB classifications.


The five Archery GB Progress Awards badges (white>black>blue>red>gold) are open to all of the club’s junior and adult archers who submit ONE qualifying score according to the following rules:

  • shooting may be indoors or outdoors;

  • the archer must shoot 36 arrows in ends of 6 arrows (either shot in one session of 36 arrows or in 2 sessions of 18 arrows each);

  • a maximum of 12 ‘sighter’ arrows are allowed per session; 

  • a club scoresheet must be completed accurately with results. The scoresheet needs to give the archer’s first name, surname, the distance shot and the date. Scores, hits and golds must be recorded and totalled, with the scoresheet agreed and countersigned by an experienced (adult) club member;

  • to claim awards, archers must achieve the scores shown in the Appendices (parts 1-4)

  • For juniors, scoring requirements vary according to:

    • bow style (Recurve, Compound, Longbow or Barebow)

    • age

    • gender

    • target face size

    • distance

  • Junior archers may only claim a badge colour once. Missed colours may be claimed when moving up an age group.

  • For adult beginners, Archery GB Progress Awards may only be claimed for scores at 20 yards, using 5-zone scoring on a 122cm face, irrespective of bow style.
