The Archery GB Classification and Handicap scheme allows archers of all levels to understand their skill level and progress through the various awards available. From the initial Archer 3rd Class classification, right through to Elite Master Bowman.
The outdoor classification has been revised for 2023 and the system now consists of nine different awards that recognise progression through various milestones. The nine awards are split into three tiers, each with three classifications in it.
• The Archer Tier
is aimed at a wide range of club - level archers
• The Bowman Tier
is aimed at archers who are at the level where they might choose to enter competitions, right the way from club-level events to national level events.
• The Master Bowman Tier
is aimed at archers competing at the highest levels of the sport.
