About the JOAD Program:
Our most important asset in archery, just as in life, is our youth.
The NAA'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 Medal archer started out as a JOAD archer.
While the Olympic effort IS important, it is far more important that archery be
a fun and positive experience so 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.
In an effort to help new JOAD parents and new archers to better understand the sport, the following information has been accumulated:
