Achievement Awards

JOAD Stars Pins
JOAD Stars pins are awarded for scoring achievements. JOAD archers can earn Stars Pins for shooting indoors and/or outdoors with recurve and/or compound bows.

Each Stars Pin is a different color, and each has a successive number of stars on it to represent the increasing challenge in earning that particular award pin.

In order to allow for the greatest flexibility in terms of indoors/outdoors, recurve or compound, each pin can be earned in a variety of ways.

Following the Stars Pins, JOAD archers can achieve even higher "Olympian" awards.


JOAD Achievement Lanyards
JOAD Archers can now display their Stars pins on lanyards designed for their archery specialty. Each lanyard holds all Stars pins as well as the optional 6-Star Gold pin (see below).

6-Star Gold Pin
Your JOAD archers can earn the official “6-Gold” pin when they shoot six 10’s in a row—either in a single 6-arrow end, or in two
consecutive 3-arrow ends.

Olympian Awards
Youth archers can earn advanced levels of recognition with the Olympian Award levels--Bronze, Silver and Gold.

An archer reaching these levels is honored with special recognition from the USA Archery office.
