What is after NASP?
Join, or develop, a local JOAD club.
This is Junior Olympic Archery Development, ages 9 – 20
This program is outside of the limitations of
school sanctioning and equipment limitations!
Largely dedicated to develop “target archery” shooting and competition, utilizing the National Training System (NTS), sanctioned by USA Archery (governing body for our USA Olympic Team). All disciplines of equipment and games of archery are introduced (i.e. 3D, Field, etc) for indoors and outdoors. Learn to shoot, mentally compete, and earn awards! Open to ALL ability levels. Your club offers you friends to practice with and adventures to share! You may become part of the club’s competitive team and advance further!
Archers compete world-wide in the “sport” of Archery, through a system of tournaments led by World Archery (formerly FITA). This includes not only the Olympics, but World Cup, collegiate, national and state amateur tournaments. This is a path to college scholarships and leads to a circuit of pro ($) competition events.
By coach’s recommendation (USA Level 2+ Instructor), a student participates in an annual training program with regular workouts, designed specifically to develop competitive youth archers. If you’ve decided that archery is your sport; then this is the program for you. The emphasis is total development of the archery athlete — shooting technique, shooting and mental skills, competition rules, tournament preparation, strength and cardiovascular training, equipment care, tuning and maintenance.
You work with the coach to complete a comprehensive evaluation, and then develop a master training plan based on your goals, availability, and commitment. You’ll be face-to-face with the coach three or more times each month, and between coaching sessions, you’ll follow a personalized schedule of training routines. This training requires a commitment of 3 or more hours per week.
