252 Scheme Awards

Award Scheme to increase the shooting distances

The 252 scheme consists of shooting 3 dozen arrows at increasing distances with a 9-based scoring (5 zone).  If you wish to register for the 252 Scheme please contact the Junior Representative.  Please click here to download the Score Sheet -> 252 Scheme Score Sheet.

Distance Progression but 5 Zone Scoring

The 252 badges are awards for achieving a score of 252 at different distances in the outdoor season.

Why 252? Although different bow types shoot different numbers of arrows to achieve the score, the original idea for recurve bows was to get all the archers 36 arrows within the red or gold zone of the target. With 5 zone scoring this would mean if every arrow went in the red – it would add up to 252.

For a Recurve archer to achieve a score of at least 252 for three dozen arrows requires an average score of 84 per dozen, equivalent to 7 or red zone per arrow. The number of arrows shot to achieve the score of 252 varies according to bow type.

252 Rules & Framework

  • AGB Rules of Shooting to apply.
  • The attempt for the 252 score must be the first shoot of the day.
  • 36 arrows (3 doz) for recurve bows, 30 arrows (2.5 doz) for compound, 60 arrows (5 dozen) for recurve barebow or 72 arrows (6 dozen) for longbow, flatbow and traditional recurve to be shot at the specified distance using a 122cm target face and GNAS five zone scoring. The required number of arrows may be shot alone or as the first arrows of a longer round.
  • Six sighter arrows are permitted which will not count towards the final score.
  • Once the archer has achieved the minimum required score, the 252 badge may be awarded for that distance on application to the records officer.
  • There is no restriction on the order of distances in which  badges are obtained (i.e. a 30yd badge may be obtained before a shorter distance is attempted, which may then be obtained at a later date).
  • You can only claim one 252 score per day.
  • Scores can be recorded on a separate sheet, as part of a club round or as the first scores arrows of a larger round.
  • It is the responsibility of the archer concerned to make a claim on the correct score card witnessed by at least one other archer, who will record the scores and sign and print their name on completion.
  • The claim should be brought to the attention of the Records Officer, who will be responsible for verifying the scores and claims; and ensuring that the true spirit of the award scheme has been complied with.

The awards for the average club archer are achievable but not easy at the longer distances. This makes it challenging for all but the very best club shooters.

Table of Awards and Distances

After 6 sighters, you shoot 3 dozen arrows on a 122cm face at your chosen distance. The round can be shot at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 yds with the aim of scoring 252 or better (that’s recurve, alternative scores apply for other bow types). If you achieve the score twice you can claim a badge.
