The Ohio Archers Association (OAA) is a state chapter of the National Field Archery Association (NFAA). When you join the NFAA, they ask you what state is your local chapter and that is where you indicate you local chapter (State of Membership) is Ohio. This makes you a member of OAA, as well as a member of NFAA. The benefits of your membership are listed on the right.
Membership costs $60/year for a single individual. Family memberships are $60 for the 1st family member, $10 for the 2nd family member and $5 for each additional family member. We also have rates for lifetime adult and lifetime senior members. Important note: NFAA does not mail out membership cards anymore. They will send you an email which will allow you to download a membership card. So keep an eye out for that email and download your membership card.
Whether you are becoming a new member or renewing your existing NFAA/OAA membership, it is handled online by clicking on the following link:

Additional OAA Benefits.
The NFAA does offer free 1-year trial membership to S3DA members. However, it is up to the leader of the local chapter of S3DA to contact NFAA office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 605.260.9279) with the child's information (name, address, sex, contact info, etc.) to create that free 1-year membership. Once created the student will receive all the same benefits like any NFAA member - membership card, magazine, etc. After the first year then the student can renew the membership at standard NFAA rates.
It is up to the chapter leader to start the procedure to create the NFAA membership for the student. The NFAA membership is not automatic just because you are an S3DA member.
Once completed the student/child can register for any of tournaments as a regular NFAA member.
