As the title says - I'm looking for information about which collegiate archery programs also operate JOAD programs.
I know of UC Berkeley and Stanford - are there others?

Thanks!

Try contacting your state archery association, they should have more information on this.

Another source is US Collegiate Archery: http://www.uscollegiatearchery.org/

From USCA, you can look up registered college archery programs and then contact the individuals involved for more information.

Hi Victor,

Thanks for the suggestions. From my internet searches it looks like this isn't very common - the two that I identified already that are here in the Bay Area, and also perhaps Michigan State (anyone know about that?). We'll keep looking.

I wouldn't expect such a program to be very prevalent. Universities can be extremely strict when it comes to liability issues. As a result, they usually limit college archery programs to just people directly affiliated with the college.

I know what you mean about the caution on the part of the university. We sure saw that when we were getting the club up and running a few years ago. The club is thinking of either a regular weekly program or perhaps going with a "clinic" model (heck, our Lacrosse team has a set of clinics called "youth attack and defense" and "high school attack and defense"; it's hard to imagine archery being scarier than that, liability-wise!).

Yes we have one at the Demmer Center at Michigan State University. I coach the MSU team and the JOAD kids. I have kids that are on the team that work there and also help out with the JOAD program. We have had 2 kids from our program that have made JDT-R and JDT-C. We also have 2 girls on USAT. They both work there at the Demmer Center and go to Michigan State.

The big issue with collegiate clubs running JOAD clubs as well is in the mixing in of minors. That opens up a large amount of liability that most colleges aren't going to want to be involved.

Every person goes thru back round screening thru MSU police. Everyone must take safe sport training. And everyone is at least level 1 instructor. The club does not run JOAD. The shooting sports and education center does. The MSU team shoots there.
