Archery Classifications are a guide to your overall level of shooting ability and
can be used as a long term guide to how you are progressing.
There are 7 levels of classification starting at 'Archer' Class - through 3rd, 2nd
and 1st Class Archer, then to the 'Bowmen' classes. Ending with Master Bowmen & Grand
The archery Handicap system can be used as a guide to your current
level of shooting ability,and can also be easily used to compare your
scores when shooting different distanced rounds.
Handicaps start at 100 and go down to zero - The lower the number the better
- basically If your handicap number drops then you are shooting more
consistently higher scores.
This is a simplified explanation and will depend on your bowtype and age
