JOAD Star Pins for USA Archery Achievements

JOAD Achievement Award Star Pins are awarded for scoring achievements. Archers can earn JOAD Achievement Award Stars Pins for shooting indoors and/or outdoors with a barebow, basic compound, fixed pins, recurve, and/or compound bows. A current USA Archery and JOAD membership is required to participate in the Achievement Awards Program. In addition to Star Pins, JOAD archers can earn the official "6-Gold" pin when they shoot six 10's in a row - either in a single 6 arrow end, or in two consecutive 3-arrow ends.
