In this page, you will find resources for scoring and information about the official shooting rounds.

Scoring

When shooting, scoring falls under two different categories:

  • 5 zone scoring
    • Scores are assigned to coloured ring groups, with the score for the lowest scored ring being used.
      • An arrow in the white rings is worth 1
      • An arrow in the black rings is worth 3
      • An arrow in the blue rings is worth 5
      • An arrow in the red rings is worth 7
      • An arrow in the gold rings is worth 9
  • 10 zone scoring
    • Scores are assigned the ring value.

There are several resources available to assist you in scoring rounds you shoot.
If your preference is for having something paper based, there are templates for both indoor and outdoor round scoring in our club documents.
If you are a mobile user, there are several mobile apps that you can use for this purpose.
Here are some based on member recommendations and some research:

Please note that these are recommendations. You don’t have to use them.
