Jr. Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) Program

JOAD is an ongoing progra''m of USA Archery that is designed to teach archery to young people over a series of classes taught by a certified archery instructor or coach. The program is taught by the staff of Demmer, lead coach being Glen Bennett. Our JOAD program offers both 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. We emphasize the National Training System (NTS) that is taught across the country. JOAD is open to any youth archer and is designed to grow with the archer. Our program coaches kids from beginners to seasoned competitors, some of our shooters even hope to be in the Olympics one day. 

Our program runs from 9:30 a.m.–11:00 am on Saturday mornings.
