Program Structure

Boys and girls in JOAD who shoot either recurve or compound bows, enjoy state, regional and national
championships in indoor and outdoor target archery. The Achievement levels were designed to provide a
challenge to youth. Success at each level is dependent on the individual"s skill and willingness to
apply themselves. Each archer can advance at his or her own pace. Pins, certificates or cloth bars are
awarded for achievement levels up to Bronze Olympian. JoAD members who achieve the Olympian awards
receive them with special recognition from the US Archery Association.

Achievement Award Program

The JOAD qualifying rounds and achievement levels were designed to provide a challenge for youth in archery achievement. Success at each level is dependent on the individuals skill and effort. Each archer can advance at his or her pace, progressing to the next goal after completing the previous level. Cloth bars are awarded for achievement levels from Yeoman to the rank of Gold Olympian. All JOAD members who attain the rank of Olympian become eligible for selection to the JOAD National Olympic Teams. These teams are given an all expense paid trip by the NAA to the National JOAD Championships.

Adult Archery Achievement Program

The United States Archery Association has recently updated their Adult Archery Achievement Program.
This program allows adults to learn proper shooting technique, achieve awards based on score, and pursue
competition if they wish. It is run similar to the Junior Olympic Archery Development Program (JOAD), but
with higher goals that offer a challenge for the adult beginner (20+) as well as the experienced archer. During
the League, participants receive clear instruction and coaching by a certified coach or instructor.
Archers using recurve, compound or traditional bows have the opportunity to earn awards for their scores which
become progressively more challenging to achieve as the archer's skill level increases.

Many of our parents want to shoot with their kids as a family. This program includes instruction, equipment
(except compound bows), scoring and awards. Adults earn certificates for each level of achievement in Indoor
and Outdoor rounds. For the Indoor program, adults may shoot traditional, barebow, recurve or their own
compound bows. Adults shoot at 18 m and 40 cm targets indoors. Compound shooters score the inner ten ring.
Outdoor distances, are at 30 m, 50 m, and 70 m.

The cost pre-paid for eight weeks

Members -- $64.00
Non-member -- $80.00

We allow you ten weeks to shoot eight sessions.

We offer this program on Friday evenings from 5:30 - 7:30 PM.
