JOAD Archery

JOAD Archery is an advanced training class for archers who own their equipment and range in age from 10 – 20 years.

JOAD Archery teaches archery to young people, awarding achievement and helps them to enjoy the sport recreationally or progress to competition level. We offer training to both compound and recurve shooters, promoting range safety, and proper shooting technique in an environment that fosters focus, increased self confidence, and team building skills.

We currently have 14 Level Two Certified Instructors with USA Archery. Our instructors are kid friendly and have taken Safe Sport training.


Our JOAD Teams meet on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6-7pm. Our team members must be a member of Maryland State Game and Fish, Maryland Archery Association, and USA Archery. Awards are handled through USA Archery with kids advancing at their own pace. New members can come into the program in November.

Costs & Equipment

The total cost is $110.00 per year.
Equipment can be expensive, sometime costing upwards of $1,000. However we recommend lower costing equipment or try to procure better equipment at a lower price, allowing the archer to grow with the bow.
