When do you practice?

Rapids Archery JOAD meets in three sessions throughout the year. The winter session runs from January through the end of March; the summer session runs from the end of May through the beginning of August; and the fall session runs from September to the beginning of December. The winter and fall sessions are indoors and the summer session is outdoors.

Our indoor sessions are broken into two groups with each group meeting for 1½ hours each week. The emphasis with the first group is on basic skill development using the 12 National Training System (NTS) steps. Archers in the second group are members of the Bandit Team or more advanced archers who have mastered the NTS at a level that allows them to begin refining their form and competing at a higher level.
