Collegiate Membership

There are two types of Membership within USA Archery’s Collegiate Archery Program: Individual and Program Membership.

If there are three or more individuals competing in USA Archery events in the current academic year, those archers will be required to form a Collegiate Archery Program with USA Archery. Exceptions to this rule are allowed in instances where the school does not allow an individual to represent the school in competition, or if the school does not allow a program to be formed.

If there are fewer than three individuals competing from the same school, they are allowed to compete as individuals and should apply for Individual Collegiate Eligibility.
