The Regional Elite Program and the National Elite Programs were established to identify and develop high performing athletes to represent the United States of America in both U.S. and World competitions. These programs give athletes the opportunity to train, with their peers and personal coaches, throughout the year at various regional camps and/or national training centers under the direction of regional or national head coaching staff.
Please review the USA Archery High Performance Program Guide to learn more about each program and eligibility criteria.
