WSC's Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) program is open to
all archers ages 8 to18. The program is intended to provide the necessary guidance
for the recreational archer who is interested in archery purely for the
enjoyment of shooting a bow and arrow.
The JOAD program is an achievement program. A system of qualifying rounds and achievement levels were designed to
provide a challenge for youth in archery achievement. Success at each level is
dependent on the individual's skill and willingness to apply themselves. Each
archer can advance at his or her own pace, progressing to the next level after
completing the previous level.
Our most important asset in archery, just as in life, is our youth. The WSC's JOAD (Junior Olympic Archery Development) program promotes the sport of archery
with young people. It stresses qetting a bow in hand quickly (instead of
boring the kid with lectures), yet doing so safely, and focuses on the positive
aspects of the sport.
The USA's last Olympic Gold and Silver Medal archers started out as JOAD archers. While the Olympic effort IS important, JOAD
recognizes that it is far more important that archery be a fun and positive
experience such that the young archer will continue to enjoy the sport
throughout life. The JOAD coach knows this and strives to promote success and
a positive attitude. Archery is a sport for a lifetime.
JOAD is held each Saturday morning 10:00 AM to Noon at our 24 lane indoor archery facility from fall until spring. Check our
Events Calendar for specific
dates and times. This program is open to members and the general public.
Fee: $2.00 per participant per session- fee includes use of
equipment, bows, arrows and quivers.
