Education is part of Minnehaha Archers Inc.'s mission, our club has a deep background in archery education. Beginning archery classes have been taught for over 50 years at our club by volunteer members.

Junior Olympic Archery Development -JOAD is a new program implemented in 2013 at Minnehaha Archers Inc. JOAD and open to any youth archer aged 8 to 17 and is designed to grow with the youth archer.

JOAD is a nationwide program of USA Archery that provides kids and teens with ongoing archery classes that help the archer progress from beginner to advanced level archery, at their own pace.

As a student of our JOAD program, the archer will learn range safety, proper shooting form, advanced techniques, and tournament preparation under the guidance of USA Archery Level 1 - 2 and 3 certified instructors and coaches.

The environment is designed to foster focus, increase self-confidence, and encourage team building.
