Woodlands JOAD Archery
WOODLANDS JOAD CLUB
JOAD (Junior Olympic Archery Development) programs are designed to promote archery. JOAD is open to archers between 8 and 20 years and AAP is open to archers 21 and up. All skill levels ranging from recreational to competitive shooters are welcome.
Recurve, Barebow and Compound archers are taught archery range safety, the basic steps of shooting, proper technique, tournament preparation, and other skills required to have success in the sport, in an environment that fosters focus, increase self-confidence, and team building skills.
Woodlands JOAD/AAP practices are for our registered archers to practice together and improve on skills they are working on. Our coaches are available to help archers hone their skills in a group setting. We will practice for upcoming tournaments, go over basic archery skills, play archery games, and have JOAD pin shoots. Archers that join our club MUST have their own equipment.
For indoor season we meet on Sundays from 2-4 pm at Texas Archery Archery, 5833 Treaschwig Rd, Spring, TX 77373.
For outdoor season we meet on Sundays from 2-4 pm at Magnolia Bible Church, 31611 Nichols Sawmill Rd, Magnolia, TX 77355.
New Members are required to attend a 15-minute safety course prior to joining a shooting line. These will be offered 15 minutes before scheduled JOAD practices. The safety course can be coordinated with Coach Scott Booth.
Annual membership to the Woodlands JOAD club is per archer per year. Woodlands JOAD’s membership renews annually in September. Membership must be current to participate in club competitions. This membership fee is in place to cover operating costs such as our annual USA Archery Club registration fee / web fees / range rental fees / storage rental / administration costs, etc. The membership amount is subject to change and will be reviewed annually.
Registration will be closed July – August. Registration opens September 1st.
USA Archery Membership Members MUST join USA Archery. You must purchase a full (not "recreational" status) youth or family membership in USA Archery to participate in the JOAD/AAP program. (The full USA Archery membership allows participation in State, National, and regional tournaments) Visit USA ARCHERY Website for registration, cost and details. Membership is required for tournament competition and access to coach insurance coverage.
SafeSport USA Archery requires that each adult involved in a JOAD program, even to the extent of just coming to the range and being present (and therefore around the kids) needs to complete the SafeSport online training. Training for everyone must be complete by the end October. Once finished email your certificate to Coach Scott Booth
