Brooklyn Junior Olympic Archery Development


Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) is a USA Archery program tailored to introducing, developing, and advancing young archers in the sport. Whether a casual hobbyist or Olympic hopeful, participants benefit from increased confidence and discipline while having fun learning archery. JOAD programs across the USA have been successful in having kids put down the electronics and learn a new skill. Gotham Archery will run multiple concurrent JOAD programs and is open to students ages 8-20.

Our JOAD program offers compound, recurve, and traditional shooters the opportunity to learn proper shooting techniques and range safety. Archers will be able to thrive in an environment that nurtures self-confidence, team building skills and the ability to focus on tasks at hand. JOAD at Gotham Archery aims to have our students enjoy archery recreationally, as well as, competitively as a sport if they wish to.

J.O.A.D Scheduling and Pricing Changes
Gotham Archery’s JOAD program will now be offering two distinct classes tailored to meet the diverse needs of our students. At Gotham Archery, we believe in fostering a culture of growth and progression, ensuring that every student, regardless of their skill level, finds their rightful place within our JOAD program. Join us today and experience the epitome of archery education, where innovation meets tradition, and dreams transform into reality.

Introducing the J.O.A.D Club, a hour long experience catered for students who are venturing into the sport of archery for the first time. JOAD Club is also a wonderful option for students who wish to do archery recreationally. Students will be able to immerse themselves into the art of archery under the guidance of our experienced instructors. All JOAD Club students will be exposed to each style of archery that is offered at Gotham, while learning form and archery techniques each week. Students will be able to discover and unlock their true potential in an encouraging and supportive environment. Our goal is to ignite and nurture each student’s individual passion for archery.

For students that have already forged their path in archery we proudly introduce J.O.A.D Advanced. This two hour class is exclusive for students who either have their own equipment (or have been using premium/advanced rental equipment at Gotham before). Students will be joining a community of like minded individuals, honing your techniques under the guidance of our JOAD instructors. JOAD Advanced students will be encouraged to be USA Archery members, which makes them eligible to participate in sanctioned tournaments. USA Archery members will also be eligible to do monthly pin shoots!If you are interested in signing up for JOAD at our Brooklyn location, email – [email protected]
