Archery Development Programs – JOAD/AAP

Junior Olympic Archery Development & Adult Archery Program

Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) and Adult Archery Program (AAP) are USA Archery programs that teach archery to students of all ages;  JOAD youth between the ages of 9 and 20 and AAP adults from 21 to 121. The Kennesaw Archery Club is proud to be a part of this program, offering everything from beginner instruction to national competitions for both recurve and compound archers.

As a student of our program, the archer will learn range safety, proper shooting form, advanced techniques, and tournament preparation under the guidance of USA Archery Level 2, and higher, certified instructors and coaches. The environment is designed to foster focus, increase self-confidence, and encourage team building.

Archers earn Star Pin  awards though the Star Pin Achievement Program for achieving scores shooting either recurve or compound bows at various distances and difficulties.

Participation in these programs is optional and there is an annual fee. You must be a member of the Kennesaw Archery Club and hold a full (youth, adult, or family) membership in USA Archery to join the program. The basic “recreational” USA Archery membership is not eligible.
