This system teaches the basic form, technique, with clear and concise steps and goals, and it prepares everyone for the next level of program.

NOVICE-INTERMEDIATE Recreational Classes & Camps
This is the level after the beginning course. We start to teach more of the Olympic Style and technique at this time, and you also get to start using a variety of bows such as the recurve, genesis, and compound bow. We also start moving the targets to different distances for different levels. Archery classes are pretty easy to teach with both novice and intermediate archers as level is based on distance ability with increased technique, mechanics, and focus. Our US Archery Certified Head Coach (he has many other distinctions) actually teaches these recreational levels along with US Archery Certified Assistants Coaches and apprentices.
The Novice level recreational program is an ongoing program that runs throughout the year. You can attend once or twice weekly. All equipment rental fees are still included no charge.
INTERMEDIATE-ADVANCED Recreational Classes & Camps
These classes take you to an awesome level of shooting with deeper concentration in technique and mechanics, while also practicing many different types of competition formats while using a variety of target faces. These classes lead to our JOAD –US Junior Olympic Archery development program and teams.
There is no additional annual fee or level up fees! It takes two days weekly to prepare for JOAD.
