J.O.A.D. Youth Archery
JOAD is a program of USA Archery that is designed to teach archery to young people, over a series of classes taught by T.A.Z. Archery Owner, Professional Archer, and Level 2 Certified coach Tim Zimmerman along with Level 3 Certified Coach Mike Nowotnik, and Level 1 Certified Coach Matthew Woods. Our coaching staff is dedicated to providing a quality archery program for kids whether they are just looking for safe fun in the back yard or chasing their dreams of Olympic Gold.
JOAD offers both 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. T.A.Z. Archery JOAD is open to any youth archer aged 7 to 19 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.
TAZ JOAD members will be able to track progress through the USA Archery Achievement awards for indoors and outdoors. They will be trained to be able to compete at the local, regional, national, and world levels.
Whether your child's interest is purely recreational or an Olympic, Paralympic, or World Championship dream, USA Archery's JOAD program is tailored to help the young archer achieve their goals. Contact us for details
