OASIS Archery Science Institute of Stockton, formerly known as the 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.
In 2018, owner and nationally accredited coach, Wayne Macasaet, had made the decision to leave the fairgrounds and expand even further, including a new brand change to incorporate the ideals of “everything archery.” Today, CCVAA is now known as OASIS Archery Science Institute of Stockton and resides on a five-acre facility, which includes multiple ranges, parking, and indoor service facilities. Future plans and developments include a store, multiple indoor facilities for daily use and rental, a sit-down cafe, and an additional five- to ten-acre expansion.
OASIS now has a flourishing Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) program that continues to develop the sport of archery. OASIS's mission is to build and nurture a community of archers that bring together the love and passion for archery, and to make OASIS 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.
