What is JOAD?  

Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a program of USA Archery that teaches archery to young people, provides great opportunities for awarding achievement, and helps archers to enjoy the sport recreationally or progress to the excitement of competition!

JOAD offers 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.

What will I learn?

Shooters of all ages and skill levels are welcome! The focus of this program is not only to develop those who already compete, but also to generate interest for those who have not yet competed. With weekly classes, hard work and a passion for archery, you can be on a team of competitive JOAD archers.

CVA’s JOAD Training Program will teach mental focus and competitive mindset for archers of any level of experience. Learn proper shooting form to build strength and consistency whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced shooter. Veteran teammates will share their experiences to build a strong, supportive team

Learning how to properly care for your equipment is just as important as learning how to shoot it. Coach Ken will explain set-up, breakdown, maintenance and repair of your equipment and help you get it fine tuned. Personal equipment for the Sunday sessions is encouraged, but not required. CVA can supply equipment to beginners.

Adult Pin Achievement Program

 

CVA offers the Adult Pin Achievement Program to adult archers that are interested in participating.

Adult Star Pins are awarded for scoring achievements, much in the same way that the JOAD program offers achievement pins.  Archers can earn Stars Pins for shooting indoors and/or outdoors with recurve and/or compound bows.

Each Star Pin is a different color, and each has a successive number of stars on it to represent the increasing challenge in earning that particular award pin. In order to allow the greatest flexibility in terms of indoors/outdoors, recurve or compound, each pin can be earned in a variety of ways.

CVA offers the Adult Indoor Achievement program; current facilities do not allow for the Outdoor program to be offered at this time. 

Archers can shoot for their next achievement during CVA’s weekly 300 round, held each Saturday during the Public Open Session. The round starts promptly at 11am, so be warmed up and ready to shoot!  If you compete at a sanctioned 300 round event, save your scorecard!  Show it to a Coach at the Public Sessions…you might have earned your next achievement!

The program is sponsored by USA Archery.  A valid USA Archery membership is required to participate in the JOAD pin program.  USA Archery Membership information can be found hereThere is also a $10 yearly fee to join the program.

In addition to Star Pins, Adult Archers can earn the official "6-Gold" pin when they shoot six 10's in a row, either in a single 6 arrow end, or in two consecutive 3-arrow ends.

Adult Archers can earn advanced levels of recognition with the Olympian Award Levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold. An archer reaching these levels is honored with special recognition from USA Archery.
