  • PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS:

    EXPLORE ARCHERY:

      • A USA Archery program.  Explore Archery is an innovative education program focused on introducing beginners of all ages and abilities to the lifelong sport of archery.  The explore Archery program is a multi session, progressive, instructional Archery program constructed in 6 week sessions.  Archery is that sport that you need to continuously practice at in order to become proficient.  Each new session comes with different lesson plans! As with all individual sports-each archer develops at different paces. The explore Archery program begins the Archer at 5 yards distances and develops them up to 15 yards as they continuously learn to hit the bull’s-eye consistently. Once an Archer is consistently hitting bull’s eyes at 15 yards they may be recommended for the JOAD Program. 
      • CLASSES OFFERED MON 5:00; Tues. 5:00; Thurs. 4:00, 5:00
      JOAD:

      Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a year round program of USA Archery that helps archers to enjoy the sport recreationally or progress to the excitement of competition! JOAD offers barebow, recurve and compound archers the opportunity to learn range safety and proper shooting technique in an environment that also fosters focus, increased self-confidence, and team building skills. JOAD is open to any youth archer aged 8 to 20 and is designed to grow with the youth archer. Introductory JOAD classes teach the fundamentals of proper shooting form; as the young archer develops, they will learn more advanced techniques and earn achievement awards. Parent participation in the Booster club is necessary for the successful participation of each student and will help eliminate competition fees/expenses.
