    As the coach of many JOAD archers - some of whom are your daughter's age, my question would be why are you more interested in her practicing than she is?

    Same experience here.

    And that 12" stab. now allowed by NFAA changes everything. It amounts to approx. 1 arrow spine difference vs. a fita/wa barebow setup.

    Depends on the event, and the year. If you were my student, I'd tell you the first step would be to see if you can qualify for the Jr. Worlds that will be held in Yankton, SD - that would be a...

    Pete, what's your bare shaft doing?

    Regardless of whether I'm string walking or just shooting 3-under while touching the arrow nock, I want good bare shaft flight. When I string walk, I'm usually...

    Glad you enjoyed it. I find it a very challenging, but very fun round to shoot with the barebow.

    I have consistently scored best on the 60cm face at 30 meters. The 80cm face at 50 is usually...

    USArchery JOAD rules follow World Archery barebow rules, with the exception that archers can now use a "Basic Compound" in the barebow division. This essentially means a Genesis bow (ala NASP) shot...

    My advice would be to not listen too close to this coach when it comes to technical items. ;)

    It always surprises me how little most coaches know about recurve setup and tuning. I guess I...

    I may have crossed the line here... Going to have to move to Katy and buy a McMansion now. Oh, and get a full-sized SUV instead of the Rav4. Maybe a minivan. I'll have to think about that. LOL!

    That's a score you should be very proud of. I think 900 for a barebow archer on this round is the equivalent of a 1300 fita for a recurve shooter.

    Out of curiosity (not that it matters one bit)...

    Indeed it is. This is very important in our sport since the wrong choice of words at that wrong time can wreak havoc on an archer's ability to focus and believe in themselves.
