Olympian Award Winners
Similar to the belt system in martial arts, These "Ranks or Pins " symbolize the archers proficiency within the sport. JOAD and AADP have their own individual requirements. The highest levels are referred to as "Olympian", but don't mean that those who achieve this level are destined for the games. Never the less, this is still a significant achievement. Only an estimated, 2 percent of archers nationwide achieve the level of Bronze Olympian. Reaching Gold is something that only potential professional archers and actual future Olympians are likely to achieve.
