Almost All You Could Want To Know About JOAD Indoor and Outdoor Pins

Your JOAD program will likely participate in the USA Archery JOAD pin program. The Pins are awarded for achievements in archery. Importantly, the pins are won separately for indoor and outdoor achievements as well as the type of bow you shoot (barebow, recurve, compound). That means there are six distinct programs you could be participating in. Most kids would only be in two, indoor or outdoor for their bow type.

The pins are divided into three categories: basic, six star, and olympian. All categories are available to both indoor and outdoor and all three bow types.

Basic Pins

There are eight basic pins denoted by color and accretion of stars.

Six Star

Your kid can earn the “6-Gold” pin when they shoot six 10’s in a row. This can be in consecutive three arrow ends or in a six arrow end.

Olympian Pins

If your kid is a super achiever, there is another class of pins they can pursue — the Olympian Award levels–Bronze, Silver and Gold. An archer reaching these levels is honored with special recognition from the USA Archery office.
