JOAD at WSC
The executive board is excited to announce that Weymouth Sportsmen’s Club is now a member of the Junior Olympic Archery Development Club (JOAD) with USA Archery. JOAD’s main purpose is to enhance the archery skills of each and every archer that joins the program. This can begin at the young age of 8 through the age of 20. The archer will learn new skills and eventually can compete among their peers within their own club or inter-JOAD club competition.JOAD Archery meets Tuesday’s from 6:30pm to 8pm. There is a $5.00 fee per person for each lesson. Check the calendar for meeting dates. Please feel free to email David Griffith the program director with any questions and to sign up. Come join the fun!

New Beginnings at the Weymouth Sportsmen’s Club
The New Beginnings group decided to try archery at the Weymouth Sportsmen’s Club because they had not tried it before. From the beginning there was alot of arrows on the ground!! However, toward the end of their 6 week session, all arrows were on the target and the groupings were much closer than when they first started out. The group enjoyed their 6 weeks session so much they signed up for another 6 week session thru the fall. The dates are listed on our calendar.

The Junior Program
The Junior program is in full swing. The group meets every Wednesday night 6:30 to 8:00 p.m except during school vacations and snow days. We start off the year with some new rifles! The club has purchased them with the money received through donations in Bob Sinkewicz’s name. Anyone interested in attending can just stop by on a Wednesday night. Contact Dick Striano at 781-749-7271 with any questions or email Dick.
