About Coach Tom

I started in archery for the physical rehabilitation aspect of the sport and found a wonderful community of people.  I got hooked on tournaments and have never looked back. This sport is really all about the archers and exists because of the generosity of shooters that share both knowledge and time. I want to give back to this amazing community and watch our sport grow.  JOAD is the perfect way to help the next generation aim straight and hit life’s targets.
