Adult Archery Program

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.
