Competition

The Trojan Archery Team attends multiple competitions each academic year, most of which occur in the spring semester. The four most common of these are:

  • California State Indoor Championship
  • National Indoor Championship
  • West Regional Outdoor Collegiate Tournament
  • National Outdoor Collegiate Championship

Indoor competitions are at a distance of 18 meters. The California State Indoor Championship is a great competition for beginners.

Outdoor competitions range from 30 meters to 90 meters. It is recommended to shoot at a minimum weight of 30 lbs to make the distance and combat wind resistance. Outdoor competitions also include team rounds, where the team’s overall score is considered.

Team members can compete in any of these competitions so long as the Team Captain and Head Coach approve. A team member’s form and score are considered relative to the style and level of competition.

If enough interest is shown, teams may be formed for Compound or Barebow archery.
