As we all drag ourselves by the skin, teeth, nail–you get the gist–that are left to us after finals take their due, we here at Trojan Archery cannot help but look back at the past semester with a strong sense of pride. Over the past 4 months, we have introduced hundreds of beginners to the sport of archery, gained dozens of new club members, and have grown as a club and a team.
Now, with the Fall semester over, we turn our sight towards the Spring semester which constitutes the majority of our competitive season. All of our competitive members, old and new, have begun training in earnest for what is shaping up to be a packed competition schedule. We are so serious about it, we even made Bibek shoot on balance balls; because dedication!
All joking aside, Trojan Archery plans on sending competitors to a whopping five tournaments this spring! Though ambitious, this competition schedule and the number of members we are trying to send to each competition means that we need your help and support to keep the competition cost manageable for all of our competitive members.
YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS!
We aim to raise $5000 to cover and/or subsidize registration fees, transportation, and lodging for 20 team members across multiple competitions. Our membership dues can only compensate for a small portion of competition costs, and our team members cannot manage to cover competition expenses on their own. Trojan Archery team members have limited access to funds and, unfortunately, will not be able to compete without YOUR support.
We have the ingredients to bring home individual honors, as well as prestige for USC, but we need your help to get us there. These competitions could be stepping stones for some of our archers on the way to Olympic gold! Every donation is needed and is greatly appreciated.

Until next time, fellow Trojans, have a good winter break and shoot on!
