Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD)
Allied Sportsmen Club is a supporter of the Junior Olympic Archery Development program.
The JOAD program runs on Saturday Mornings in two lines.
A 9am line and a 11:00 am line.
All new students or students under 10 years old will be in the 9am-10:30 am line.
All students 10+ years will be in the 11am-1:00pm line.
All students should arrive no later than 15 minutes before the line begins. There is no minimum age as long as the student listens and pays attention to the rules.
The dress code is relaxed. No baggy shirts (catches the string), no excess skin showing, no boxers/underwear showing. Sneakers or closed toe shoes are recommended especially for outdoor shooting. Jeans, shorts, tank tops (no cleavage) are perfectly acceptable.
We offer instruction in many styles of shooting. Whatever skill or interest we can accommodate most children.
- Olympic Style Recurve for competition, recreation, 3-D, and hunting
- Compound style for competition, recreation, 3-D, and hunting
- Traditional (bare bow) style for competition, recreation, 3-D, and hunting
The cost to shoot is $5.00 per week. Equipment is provided on site if the student doesn't have their own. When a student is ready to purchase their first bow we are able to recommend the proper equipment to fit the student.

The NY SAFE Act is a direct threat to all sportsmen and sporting clubs. It eliminates the sale of ammo beginning January 2014. It severely restricts the private sales of rifles and shotguns. (Pistol sales were previously restricted through licensing) It will eventually eliminate the passing on of firearms upon the death of a current firearm owner if not stopped. And it simply is an infringement of Second Amendment Rights. Allied Sportsmen Club supports SCOPE's efforts to
