Registration Open for Regional JOAD Camps and USA Archery Debuts High Performance Camps
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Archery has opened
registration for two archery camp opportunities: Regional Junior Olympic
Archery Development (JOAD) Camps, and the newly announced High Performance
The Regional JOAD Camps will focus on introducing archers to
the National Training System (NTS) and offering attendees a positive learning
experience that focuses on improving skill sets in a fun-focused team
environment. The Regional JOAD Camps are geared toward students who are
interested in taking the “next step” toward becoming competitive archers.
The High Performance Camps are being debuted in 2013 as a
way to bridge the gap between Regional JOAD Camps and Junior Dream Team (JDT)
Camps, and will take place at Olympic Training Centers. These camps have
minimum qualifying criteria, detailed below, and are focused on introducing
more experienced archers to the National Training System.
Complete information, including registration and contact
details, are noted below.
Regional Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) Camps are
designed to introduce archers to the National Training System and provide an
opportunity to interact with an Elite coaching staff and other archers who are
also dedicated to taking the "next step" as competitors.
During the camp archers will learn and practice:
The National Training System (NTS) shot cycle and shooting form
Learn and complete goal setting exercises
Learn how to better prepare for tournaments
Undergo video analysis and critiquing by Regional and Elite Coaches
Learn advanced training and practice techniques that they can use at
The goals of the Regional JOAD Camps are to raise each
attending archer's level of expertise so that they will be better prepared for
tournament competition, teach training techniques that will reinforce the
lessons learned at camp, and to instill in each archer the confidence they need
to train for and perform better at any level of competition. JOAD Camps are a
great learning experience for any archer that is looking to better their skill
sets, develop strong friendships, and have fun!
The cost of the camp is $300.00. Archers are responsible for
bringing their own equipment and for their own transportation and lodging
costs. It is recommended that all traveling archers and parents stay at the
host hotel, but it is not mandatory.
