2015 JOAD State Championship



With the continuing explosion of JOAD throughout the state, the ITAA is pleased to invite you to the 2015 JOAD Indoor state championship.  This event is an opportunity to really test your mettle against other competitors and other JOAD teams from all over.



Results are posted here!

Event Summary:

On the January 17th, the ITAA held its Indoor State JOAD Championship as a 600 round. This event featured 113 youth shooters, all decked out in their team colors and shirts. Our JOAD teams from all over the state (and some neighboring states) have been working hard all indoor season, and this was a great opportunity to show off their skills.
In addition to the individual competitions, we also held a team competition, with each JOAD club being represented by their highest scoring male and female competitor in each bow style of Barebow, Recurve, and Compound. This year the winning club was TAZ JOAD from Woodstock.
Congratulations to our new JOAD champions!
