Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a program for youth archers 8-20 years old. Participants in the JOAD program can enjoy the sport recreationally or progress to the excitement of competition. The JOAD program offers barebow, basic compound, recurve, and compound archers the opportunity to learn range safety and proper shooting technique in an environment that also fosters increased self-confidence and team-building skills.
