Parents

Parents of current Minnehaha JOAD students are encouraged to become Level 1 and/or Level 2 coaches. The more coaches we have the better we can teach our kids to help them to improve and advance their archery skills with more 1 on 1 time. Parents who coach and shoot with their children at hosted shoots and tournaments bring a new aspect of fun to the sport. There is no requirement for coaches to attend every class during an 8 week session nor must coaches participate in every session. Coaches also have first preference when registering their children in JOAD session classes.

interested individuals, please email JOAD@minnehaha-archers.com and provide basic information and Certification Level preference ( 1 or 2). 
 An email will be sent to all participants with further instructions prior to Dec 17th.
