JOAD

* All Information Taken from USA archery official website

Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a program of USA Archery that helps archers  to enjoy the sport recreationally or progress to the excitement of competition!

JOAD offers barebow, 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. JOAD is open to all ages and is designed to grow with the youth archer through adults. Introductory JOAD classes teach the fundamentals of proper shooting form; as the archer develops, they will learn more advanced techniques and earn achievement awards.

Youth:

Joad Star Pins

JOAD Star Pins are awarded for scoring achievements. JOAD archers can earn Stars Pins for shooting indoors and/or outdoors with barebow, basic compound recurve and/or compound bows. A current USA Archery Youth, Adult, or Family membership is required to participate in the Achievement Awards Program, as outlined in the Club Membership Form.

In addition to Star Pins, JOAD 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.

Joad Achievement Lanyards

JOAD Archers can display their Stars Pins on lanyards designed for their archery specialty. Each lanyard holds all Stars pins as well as the optional 6- Star Gold pin.

Olympian Awards

JOAD 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 the USA Archery Office.

Adult Star Pins

Adult Star Pins are awarded for scoring achievements. Adult archers can earn Stars Pins for shooting indoors and/or outdoors with recurve and/or compound bows. A full USA Archery Youth, Adult, or Family membership option is required to participate in the Achievement program, as required in the Club Terms and Conditions Agreement.

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.

In addition to Star Pins, JOAD 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.
