COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - USA Archery (USAA) has received two Multistate Conservation Grants for 2024, allowing for greater support of collegiate programs and to help grow the sport among those from under-represented populations.
These generous grants, courtesy of The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), follow the incredible success of last year’s Multistate Conservation Grant for the Archery is For Everyone! national awareness campaign with Marvel Entertainment, LLC.
For collegiate, USAA will recruit 10 new colleges, and through the grant program provide the programming, equipment and instructor certification necessary to start a successful Collegiate Archery Program.
If you are a collegiate archer, coach, or involved in archery at your community level and know of a college interested in adding an archery program, contact [email protected] for more information.
In addition, USA Archery has received funding to certify and train 30 instructors located in urban and suburban areas, who will also receive program materials and equipment to help support the start-up of a new Explore Archery Program and/or USAA club.
Mary Emmons, USA Archery Chief of Sport Performance and Operations, commented “USAA is grateful to The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) for these grants, which allow USAA to establish new partners, certify new instructors and expand opportunities for youth and collegiate participation nationwide.
“Collegiate archery is a key component in the recruitment and retention of 18-24 year-old athletes beyond their time in college.”
