X-Terminators JOAD Archery Club, Junior Olympic Archery Development, was started in 2011 by head coach Ron Lucas. We work at teaching anyone who is interested in learning the sport and also to help the youth shooters reach their full potential in this sport. The Club has grown quickly from a few members in 2011 to where we are today. We currently have over 10 archers on our roster and aspirations of new members joining weekly. We hold a JOAD class every Saturday @ 9:00am. Our goal is to ensure that every child has a fun and learning experience while growing their skill/passion for the sport. We encourage anyone to come to a class and give the sport a try.
Our head coach and President, Ron Lucas, is a level 3 NTS coach. He devotes a large amount of his time assisting the kids, either building arrows, giving private lessons or answering any question someone may have when its comes to the sport of archery. With such a large class being held every Sunday, Ron is still able to work with every child on the shooting line. He welcomes every beginner to class and makes them feel at home in the range. He always finds the time to work with the more seasoned archers so they may reach even higher levels of success within this sport. He ensures every child, parent and archer are safe within his range and that everyone leaves with a smile on their face and a love for the sport.

Can’t wait to see what this year has in store for her!
