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.
Whether your interest in archery is purely recreational, or an Olympic, Paralympic or World Championship dream, USA Archery’s Adult Archery Program is designed to help you pursue all that archery has to offer. Click here to start your Adult Archery Program today.

Adult Archery Achievement Program
Similar to JOAD, Adults have the opportunity to shoot for the gold! Through our system of rewarding excellence, students have the opportunity to earn awards for their scores, which become progressively more challenging as the archer’s skill level increases.
A full USA Archery Youth, Adult, or Family membership is required to participate.
