World Archery events range from the international to national, from multi-nationality to localised. All are run to the same (or similar) set of rules, and all feature archers performing, and competing, at their highest level. International events are awarded to bid cities, coordinated and managed by World Archery directly, world ranking events are coordinated by its continental associations and world record status by its national member associations.
Some items of archery equipment require specialised skills and knowledge to produce. World Archery’s licensing programme ensures these items are produced to the standard required for use at World Archery events.Licensed Target Face Manufacturers
Target faces used at World Archery world record and world ranking level events and above must be produced by one of the following licensed manufacturers.
World Archery’s Beginner Awards Programme was created to reward people learning archery at different intervals of their development. The awards are available to purchase from World Archery’s online store by archery clubs, coaches and national federations.
There are seven awards in the programme, each recommended to be given after learners have reached milestones in score, skill and archery knowledge.
Coaches will find the complete curriculum required to run the Beginner Awards Programme in the manual available in the downloads section of this page.
