Archery for Youth

Find a Club

Let us introduce you to our Junior Olympic Archery Development Program - We call it "JOAD" 

JOAD is a nationwide program of USA Archery that provides youth age 8 to 20 with ongoing archery classes that helps them progress from beginner to advanced level archery, at their own pace.

Archery is where your child not only participates in a sport,  they will develop strong problem solving skills, increase their concentration, build confidence and create friendships that will last a lifetime.

JOAD classes are held at USA Archery clubs across the country. These clubs offer both recurve and compound training and most clubs have rental equipment so that you can try archery first before investing in equipment. Clubs are led by certified instructors and coaches, and all of our clubs are bound by our SafeSport requirements

Whether your child's interest is purely recreational or an Olympic, Paralympic or World Championship dream, USA Archery's JOAD program is tailored to help the young archer achieve their goals.
