Ace Archers JOAD
Ace Archers, Inc. sponsors the Ace Archers JOAD club. A JOAD club is one of the developmental arms of USA Archery to produce and maintain tournament archers in Olympic Style Recurve Bows, Compound Bows, Barebows and Traditional Bows. Ace Archers JOAD include both a JOAD program (8 years old through 20 years old) and the Adult Archery Program (over 20 years old) of USA Archery. To become a member of Ace Archers JOAD you must be a member of USA Archery and then select Ace Archers JOAD as your local club. At least once a month we hold a scoring round where the club members can earn their next JOAD or AAP rank.
Ace Archers JOAD includes Team Aces, an advanced group of tournament archers training to successfully compete in local and national tournaments. Team Aces meets at least once a week, on Sundays, from 9:10 am to noon for the indoor season (Mid-August through March) at Ace Archers, Inc. and during the outdoor season (April through Mid-August) we meet outdoors at Mansfield’s Memorial Park Practice Field. All members of Ace Archers JOAD are welcome to come shoot outdoors at the Memorial Park Practice field (you must have you own equipment).
