Carolina Day held a Junior Olympic Archery Development Program (JOAD) led by world-renowned Master Coach Alexander Kirillov and CDS parent Dr. Bob Park. Dr. Park is a USA Archery Certified Level II and has just returned from trying out for the Olympic archery team. Dr. Park has been training and shooting with Coach Kirillov for 10 years.
JOAD is the development program of USA Archery - a branch of the US Olympic Committee - and trains future Olympians. Participants in JOAD train regularly and compete against other archers at local, regional and national levels. Archery is a sport that requires discipline, self-confidence, grit, and determination - all qualities we value in our classrooms and in athletics.
