Trosper Archery Club hosts a JOAD program that provides young men and women an opportunity to safely learn to shoot, win awards for their achievements, and complete with others their age. Nationally, USA Archery’s JOAD Clubs have contributed significantly to filling spots on the US Olympic Archery Teams–many recent US Olympic team members began shooting as JOAD club members.
Beginning archers of all ages are always welcome to come to the JOAD sessions to work on their form and learn from our coaches. Trosper Archery was some amazing coaches including: Jane Johnson, Sid Reed, Chuck Morgan, Joe & Stacy Goodwin, and Betsy Kulakowski just to name a few.
Price and Equipment
The class is $5 per student per day.
This price includes the use of all necessary equipment to shoot safely including a recurve bow, arrows, a quiver, an arm guard, and a finger tab. Students are welcome to bring their own equipment, including compound equipment, but it will need to be inspected by a coach before you can shoot.
