Competitive team archery and weekly lessons for ages 8 to adult
Big Al’s JOAD Archery Club
Welcome to the web page of Big Al’s Archery’s ‘JOAD’ (Junior Olympic Archery Development) program. JOAD is a nationally recognized program under the USA Archery Association. All JOAD instructors are USA Archery certified and insured. The JOAD program helps a person develop the skills to become a better archer for the sport of target archery. The step by step achievements levels allow the archer to be recognized for his/her progress and compete with archers in the same age group if desired.
The Club meets weekly for each eight week session ending with a “JOAD Shoot for Score” where achievement certificates and badges can be earned. Classes meet Monday, Thursday, and Sunday evenings and Saturday mornings. Membership in the club includes free use of the indoor practice range at Archer’s Paradise Archery Shop in Salisbury, MA anytime the shop is open and includes expert advice from the knowledgeable staff.
*Note: As of January 1, 2014, all JOAD students to earn badges and be insured must be a member of USA Archery! (Click Here to see pdf file of membership levels. Click Here to access membership registration page on USAArchery.org)
