The New Waterside Archers 252 award Scheme

The 252 award scheme is open to all WA Members whether they are Senior or Junior, experienced archers or newcomers to the sport. The objective of the scheme is to encourage archers to work on their technique and promote steady improvement at increasing distances by attaining a target score of 252, or greater, at each distance on a minimum of 2 occasions. The distances shot will be 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 and 100 yards and there will be a distinctive different coloured badge available to mark your achievement at each distance.
