NOTE: Membership gives you access to our club and amenities, but it doesn’t include practices nor use of our equipment. Archery practices are ongoing on a rolling basis meaning the level of archery experience does not matter when the archer joins our club because our practices teach those without experience i.e. beginners as well as intermediate and advance.

JOAD offers barebow, recurve, and compound archers the opportunity to learn range safety and proper shooting technique in an environment that also fosters focus, increased self-confidence, and team-building skills. JOAD is open to any youth archer aged 8 to 20 and is designed to grow with the youth archer.

Adult Archery Program (AAP): $30 | What does the Adult Archery Program offer the archer? In addition to receiving clear instruction and coaching via our National Training System, membership in an archery program provides unique benefits to adults, including the opportunity to continue to advance in the sport of archery, earn pins and ribbons, a great upper-body workout, the chance to build self-confidence, and learn team-building skills.

WORKING MEMBER VS NON-WORKING MEMBER

Non-Working Member: If you are unable to volunteer time to support the SMA Club, then your membership is either a Non-Working Individual or Non-Working Family.

The additional fee is $100 for Non-Working Individual and $180 for a Non-Working Family of 4.
