As one of the largest sports club on campus, Cal Archery allows every student to experience different types of archery.
Archery Club members, from beginners to seasoned members, come to club practices to work on techniques, free shoot, or simply hang out with friends. California Archery is dedicated to teaching students from the ground up to shoot competitively, while also creating space for both competitive and recreational archers.
For those who are interested in becoming better archers, the club holds a weekly Sunday morning training class called ASCENT. ASCENT lasts throughout the duration of a semester, and covers everything from learning correct stance when shooting, to exploring all of the different archery divisions available.
California Archery has a rich history of developing talented athletes. In 2013, California Archery was awarded 10 individual honors and 6 team awards. The Cal Archery team has consistently placed within the top 3 teams in the Western Collegiate Region for Outdoor Archery Season, winning the second place prize in 2023. The team won National Outdoor Collegiate Championships in 2017 in both the Male and Female Team Barebow division, as well as winning in 2023 in the Mixed Team Barebow division.
Direct admission to the team will be assessed based on prior competitive experience. ASCENT classes, however, are open for anyone to join, regardless of experience. Upon successful completion of a semester of ASCENT, archers in this program who have displayed consistent participation and a strong interest in competing will be granted an invitation to join the team.
We primarily have a competitive team, but allow members to be active in a recreational capacity as well. We generally let all members participate on weekdays, and save weekends for competitive team practice and ASCENT classes.
