We are starting some new programs!
Adapted Archery is for individuals who have disabilities. We can adapt our equipment for archers who are sight impaired, have mobility impairment, range of movement issues, or missing limbs.We also can adapt our shot cycle for optimal performance, maintaining a safe and efficient form throughout the shot cycle.
Explore Archery is held once a month now, the last Wednesday of each month 6pm - 8pm. This will have a classroom period where we go over the basics about Archery and practice with stretch bands. The last half of this time is spent on the range using our equipment, and playing a few archery games.
Team Building Archery events are for companies who would like a team building event for their employees. We give the team some basic instruction in archery, a bit of practice, and then the fun begins. We have dozens of archery games for individuals to compete against one another, and ways of creating small teams to compete against each other as well.
For any of these please contact Coach Mike for more information at: IslandJOAD@gmail.com
Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a program of USA Archery that teaches archery to young people, provides great opportunities for awarding achievement, and helps archers to enjoy the sport recreationally or progress to the excitement of competition!
JOAD offers both recurve and compound archers the opportunity to learn range safety and proper shooting technique in an environment that also fosters focus, increased self-confidence, and team building skills. JOAD is open to any youth archer aged 8 to 20 and is designed to grow with the youth archer. Introductory JOAD classes teach the fundamentals of proper shooting form; as the young archer develops, they will learn more advanced techniques. (quoted from the USA Archery site)
Currently the Island Archers JOAD meets every Thursday evening at the BISC. in three groups:
Please contact Coach Mike for registration information
Private lessons are also available for the more advanced archers who seek to compete at a higher level.
