Information/Questions (generates an email to the Archery Canada Star Coordinator)

BASIC GUIDELINES FOR ALL PINS:

  • In order to qualify for pins, the event must be registered with World Archery, not just Archery Canada. You can determine the registration level by:
    • Asking the host of the tournament what the registration level is
    • Checking the calendar on the World Archery website
    • Checking the calendar on the Archery Canada website
  • One score per pin applied for. This means that if you shoot a 603 at a WA720, you can apply for a Blue pin (or whatever lower value pin you have not yet received). You will not get a Blue, Black, AND White pin—ie, you will not receive 3 pins for the one score.
  • You are only allowed to receive one of each type of pin. ie. You can only ever be awarded one Blue pin, but you could receive a Blue WA Target award and a Blue Silver WA Target Award in your lifetime. You cannot receive one for a WA720 and another for a WA18m.

Recurve

WA Stars are available for archers using recurve or compound bows in World Archery registered Star events (1440-round) and they must be:

Men shooting WA Round: 90m, 70m, 50m, 30m

Women shooting WA Round: 70m, 60m, 50m, 30m

WA Stars are for scores of 1000 (white), 1100 (black), 1200 (blue), 1300 (red), 1350 (gold) and 1400 (purple). The Gold WA Star on a coloured circular background is the Compound Star, whereas for recurve the 1000 pin is just the gold star itself, and the higher ones are on a shield of the relevant colour. An archer may claim only one of each Star, but as the recurve and compound stars are considered different awards archers may claim both the recurve and compound WA Stars if they shoot both bow types.

Claims for 1350 and 1400 FITA Stars are individually processed by World Archery from claims made to World Archery by Archery Canada on behalf of the archer.

SILVER FITA STARS

Silver WA Stars follow the same rules but are only for archers competing in the Cadet or Master categories (Master only for rounds shot on or after 1 April 2010) with:

Cadet Boys and Master Men shooting a WA Round: 70m, 60m, 50m, 30m

Cadet Girls and Master Women shooting a WA Round: 60m, 50m, 40m, 30m

The Silver FITA Stars are identical to the FITA Stars except that any gold colouring on the pins is replaced with silver.

* ARROWHEADS FOR CADET ARCHERS:

Using these tables, Cadet archers shooting their specific round in the Green Arrowhead score range may claim a Green Arrowhead. A score of Brown Arrowhead level or higher means that the archer is eligible to claim a Brown Arrowhead. This also applies to our Intermediate sighted archers shooting from Blue pegs and Intermediate and Cub barebow recurvers shooting from Yellow pegs. No Arrowheads higher than Brown may be claimed unless the athlete is shooting the Open rounds.

Claims for Silver and Gold Arrowheads are individually processed by World Archery from claims made by Archery Canada on behalf of the archer.
