Youth and adult archers: wax your bowstrings, re-fletch your arrows, and put your game faces on: The JOAD Mail-In Tournament is a GREAT way to test your skills against archers across the country, from the comfort of your home archery range! This tournament runs year-round.

Traditionally one of the most fun and least expensive tournaments of the year, the JOAD Mail-In Tournament Series offers new and experienced youth and adult archers the opportunity to participate in a national competition without ever leaving their home archery range, and at a very low cost.

All archers participating in the Mail-In Tournament series must be a member of either a JOAD or Adult Archery Achievement club. This club must be affiliated with USA Archery and have current membership status. Archers must have at least a Recreational Membership to participate in the tournament.

Students in JOAD as well as Adult Archery Achievement programs are encouraged to participate; archers may also combine to enter a team score for a small additional fee, and join the exciting team competition.


Through these events, archers of all ages and experience levels are able to experience the fun and excitement of a national tournament, see where they would rank in a national competition, and learn valuable team building and goal-setting skills.

All registration fees received from the JOAD Mail-In Tournament Series will be donated to USA Archery to be used for the support of JOAD Programs. For more information, including complete rules, registration forms and contact information, read the information below.
