Youth Award Pins

General Information

Youth badges and pins can be achieved at any major outdoor tournament where a junior has competed at their relevant World Archery (WA) or Youth distance or above. The postal round badge system can also be claimed through club shoots.

Badges and pins may be claimed as long as the archer shoots in their correct age group or a higher age group at a registered major tournament or national event.

Costs

Each badge and pin costs $10.

The postal round badge system is the only exception, with the starter badge and ribbon costing $10 and each bar $5.

Payment can be paid in cash, cheque, or via online banking (Kiwibank 38-9015-0468141-01 include ‘Surname’ and ‘Youth Pins’ in payment details)

Claiming

Each claim form must be accompanied by an original or copy of the scoresheet. The claim form should be filled out correctly, and more than one claim can be made per claim form. The scoresheet must be signed by all parties, with perfects clearly outlined by the judge, and the claims entered into the claim box. If the scoresheet does not have a claim box the claims should be written somewhere on the scoresheet. The exception is the postal badge system where the claim form only needs to be signed by the club Youth coordinator.

All badges can be claimed only once, unless claiming for a broken badge. In this case the badge should either be posted back or a photo should be sent to the Youth Awards Registrar. A replacement will be sent. If badges are lost (or stolen) an archer is able to purchase new replacement badges or pins.

Those shooting in the Cadet and Junior divisions are also eligible to claim WA badges and pins.

Claims are to be sent to: [email protected]
