This program was created in order to address the needs of progressing athletes from the beginning stages of development to the advance and elite level. Its mission is to enhance high-quality intermediate sports programs for talented youth to maximize their potential in archery.

In order to complete the mission of training talented and motivated young athletes, we work closely with them in putting together their own equipment, preparing them for tournaments, learning the scoring system and rules and conducts of the sport. We also tailor a training schedule to fit other activities in which the athlete is involved; For example, school, after-school activities, other sports or work. Two instructors will be working with the athlete independently to maximize proper training.

The training focuses on five things: Form and Shooting Technique, Physical and Mental Preparation, Equipment set-up, Tournament Readiness, and Character.



Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a program of USA Archery that helps archers to enjoy the sport recreationally or progress to the excitement of competition!

JOAD offers barebow, 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. Introductory JOAD classes teach the fundamentals of proper shooting form; as the young archer develops, they will learn more advanced techniques and earn achievement awards.




The Adult Archery Program is a program of USA Archery that allows adults to learn proper shooting technique, achieve awards based on score, and pursue competition if they wish, during a series of classes taught by a certified coach or instructor. Similar in scope to USA Archery’s Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) program, the Adult Archery Program 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, and the chance to build self-confidence, and learn team-building skills.
