California Central Valley Archery Academy (CCVAA) started as a group of friends and family who came together to bring the noble sport of Olympic Recurve archery to the San Joaquin Central Valley. It has come a long way from shooting in a backyard, to the grand facilities of the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds. CCVAA now has a flourishing Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) program that continues to develop the sport of archery. CCVAA's mission is to build and nurture a community of archers that bring together the love and passion for archery, and to make CCVAA the ultimate archery hang-out place in northern California. Their vision is to develop sustainable programs that support the demands of both recreational and competitive archery and make archery a fun and an inclusive sport. Weekly JOAD classes are offered as well as a Summer Camp.
