Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a program of USA Archery that is designed to teach archery to young people, over a series of classes taught by a certified archery instructor or coach. JOAD offers both recurve and compound archers the opportunity to learn range safety and proper shooting technique in an environment that also fosters focus, increased self-confidence, and team building skills. JOAD is open to any youth archer aged 8 to 20 and is designed to grow with the youth archer.

Both recurve and compound bows are used in club activities and in tournaments. Whether your child's interest is purely recreational or an Olympic, Paralympic or World Championship dream, USA Archery's JOAD program is tailored to help the young archer achieve their goals.

Our club is also sanctioned to administer this program to adults (21+yrs) and seniors. - AADP         Similar in scope to USA Archery’s Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) program, the Adult Archery Development Program (AADP) is a logical “next step” for adult archers pursuing this lifetime sport.

What does the Adult Archery Program offer the archer? In addition to receiving clear instruction and coaching via our National Training System, membership in an archery program provides unique benefits to adults, including the opportunity to make new friends, a great upper-body workout, the chance to build self-confidence and learn team-building skills. Through our system of rewarding excellence, students have the opportunity to earn awards for their scores, which become progressively more challenging to achieve as the archer’s skill level increases.

** Multi-session/program discount is applied to the lesser value programming. Ex. A family is registered for the Indoor program at current program rates but an individual from that family also wishes to participate in extra sessions. The single person membership would receive the 50% discount on second addition session time they wish to join and 75% off the third or more. Ex. (Regular Family Rate + Individual Rate (50% off) + Individual Rate 75% off (same archer).
