Collegiate Archery

Ready to Start Your Collegiate Archery Experience?

Many colleges and universities offer USA Archery Collegiate Archery Programs. These programs range from clubs to varsity teams with scholarship opportunities. USA Archery can also help you start a program at your school if they do not yet have one in place.

USA Archery’s Collegiate Archery Program is also a great opportunity for Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD), National Archery in the Schools (NASP), and Scholastic 3-D archers to continue their archery journey!

Enhance Your College Experience

USA Archery’s Collegiate Archery Program is for students enrolled in a college or university. Eligible participants can work to develop fundamental skills while actively preparing for local, regional, and national events in the collegiate division.

The Collegiate Archery Program offers barebow, recurve, compound, and bowhunter divisions. Full-time students in good standing who are enrolled in an accredited university are eligible to join the Collegiate Archery Program and are offered discounted membership rates.

Join An Amazing Community

With the stresses and pressures of a rigorous academic pursuit, archery can be the perfect outlet for college students. Archery gives you a community, friends to last a life-time, opportunities to travel and compete and has many benefits including team building, increased self-confidence and goal setting – skills that help you achieve success both in and out of the classroom.

Track Your Progress

Through our system of rewarding excellence, archers have the opportunity to earn awards for their scores, which become progressively more challenging as the archer’s skill level increases. This program helps archers set goals and measure progress to achieve their personal best.

Gain Recognition

USA Archery appreciates the great efforts our archers make to aim higher in both the classroom and on the archery field. We celebrate top student-athletes with awards including All-Region, All-American, and All-American Academic team honors.


If you are interested in competitive archery, USA Archery sanctions many local, state and regional tournaments and hosts a series of national events each year for indoor, outdoor, field and 3-D archery. USA Archery is also responsible for nominating archers to the U.S. team for the biannual World University Games.
