Greetings Archers,

Happy 2020 Archers! It is hard to believe that this year is already 1/12 over. It will be Christmas again before we blink twice! That being said, we are determined to pack as much archery fun into this year as possible! We got off to a great start with our Educator and Military Appreciation Days. We are so thankful that we were able to honor some of the men and women who have protected our nation and cared for our children. As part of our ongoing commitment to express our gratitude, we now offer a membership discount to all educators and support staff and to all military personnel, active and retired. Make sure to inquire about this when you become a member or renew your membership! Read on for information about our upcoming exciting archery shenanigans!

New Class Offerings!

Central Texas Archery is excited to officially launch our USA Archery JOAD and Adult Achievement Programs!

Read below for more information. Classes will begin in March and be scheduled to best meet the needs of those who register.

JOAD, or Junior Olympic Archery Development, is a nationwide program where certified coaches (Us!) provide instruction for youth archers to help them progress in the sport at their own pace.  You’ll learn important skills, play exciting games and earn awards for developing fundamental skills and scoring achievements. You will also get event preparation for all archery disciplines and we have equipment you can use, before investing in your own!  
Each year at JOAD National Target Championships, youth archers from across the country gather to compete for medals and college scholarships.  Scholarships are offered to top finishing male and female archers in varying recurve, compound and barebow (recurve) divisions.  
JOAD Star Pins are awarded for scoring achievements for shooting outdoor with recurve and/or compound bows.  In addition to the Star Pins (seen above, left), archers can earn the official “6-Gold” pin when they shoot six 10’s in a row…either in a single 6-arrow end or in two consecutive 3-arrow ends.  Star Pins are displayed on a lanyard, that can easily be attached to your quiver!
JOAD Archers can also earn advanced levels of recognition with the Olympian Award levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold (seen above, right).  An archer reaching these levels is honored with special recognition from USA Archery. 
Requirements to Participate: 
  1.  An all access USA Archery Youth Membership ($45.00), Adult Membership ($65.00 per year or $160.00 for 3 years), or Family Membership ($130.00 per year or $320.00 for 3 years) is required.  You can register here: www.usarchery.org
  2. Sign up as a member of our club: Central Texas Archery of Austin!
  3. You must attend a weekly JOAD class at the range.  Cost is $18 per class and includes the cost of 1 lanyard and the Star Pins (1 each, including 8 Star Pins, 6-Gold and a Bronze, Silver & Gold).
