STAY UP TO DATE
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Archery is happy to announce 2019 Ann Hoyt/Jim Easton Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) Grant recipients. JOAD Clubs in good standing can request grant funds for items such as target stands, archery equipment, general supplies and coaching certifications. The grant is designed to assist clubs by providing resources for long-term equipment usage and club development.
Congratulations to the following clubs that received grant funds:
Kenneth Conway, City of Yuma Recreation Coordinator and Certified Archery Instructor commented, “While our city has provided a youth outreach archery program that serves middle schools in the community for the past five years, it has only been two years since the inaugural USA Archery JOAD program launched.Amazingly, our program has introduced over 2,000 students to archery every year since 2014. We offer an instructive, inclusive, and safe place to grow their competence in the international sport of archery and their mastery for Olympic-level competition.
“With our recent Ann Hoyt/Jim Easton JOAD grant award, we are able to better serve budding archers, continue our robust outreach efforts especially among minority youth, and help further develop those with a drive to compete.Thank you so very much for your generous financial support, which helps us to achieve such results!”< Back to All News
