JOAD/AAAP are fun and challenging ways to become part of the Sattva community while building your skills as an archer athlete.
The Junior Olympic Archery Development Program (JOAD) and the Adult Archery Achievement Program (AAAP) are programs of USA Archery, offered at Sattva Center for Archery Training. JOAD is for ages 8 – 20; AAAP is for ages 21 and older. Coaching provided through JOAD/AAAP guides intermediate and advanced athletes towards enjoying the sport recreationally or progressing towards the excitement of competition.
You may be familiar with the practice of martial arts students earning different color belts to symbolize a level of achievement. Similarly, in JOAD/AAAP, participants are given opportunities to demonstrate how their skills have progressed under tournament like conditions in an event called a “Pin Shoot”. Archers compare their scores achieved during a Pin Shoot with a national scoring matrix and, if a certain score is achieved to earn the next level, a new Pin is earned. Pins are collected on lanyards and become symbols of dedication, persistence, skill and achievement.
Whether you or your child’s interest is purely recreational or an Olympic, Paralympic or World Championship dream, USA Archery’s JOAD/AAAP programs are tailored to help you achieve your goals.
Sattva’s JOAD/AAAP program runs year-round, indoors and out, in 10-week intervals.
