Academy Archery Club is Forsyth County’s leading JOAD archery club. Founded in 2012 to provide area youth an opportunity to learn teamwork, leadership and proper target archery shooting technique. As our student archers progress, the Club will provide many opportunities to participate in fun shoots and tournaments in the local area. In addition to its growing youth program, the Club added Adult Instruction in 2014 and welcome archers of all skill levels to come join the fun!

The Club meets outdoors at Pinecrest Academy in South Forsyth County during the months of April through November.

During the months of January, February and March, the Club meets indoors at the Newpoint Tabernacle Baptist Fellowship Activity Center. The Activity Center is located at 2150 Antioch Road, Cumming, Georgia 30041
