As awards are earned, each youth develops archery skills together with greater confidence and ability to perform in competition. Goals also include recognizing fair play, courtesy and good sportsmanship with the emphasis placed on safety and individual performance.

QUALIFYING FOR BADGES JOP - Archers will require two qualifying scores to achieve each level of the JOP program. They will receive a Certificate and sticker for each of these levels.
These rounds are developed by the international Sport Body (FITA). We use a five color target face with ten scoring zones, counting from 10 to 1. Three arrows are shot in an end with 10 ends making up a round of 30 arrows and a possible score of 300.
Competition at the local level may be among the members of the club or with other clubs in the area. Coordinators and coaches will encourage their junior members to participate in local events as these make very good tournament experience. Silvertip Archery has funds to help with travel costs.
