Wake Forest Archery was founded in 2009. The club started with only a few bows and a single target.
Today, we have many club members and several “varsity” (competitive) members. We have our own storage unit, club bows, targets, 3D targets, and more. We are proud to be a no-cut club open to all Wake Forest students, providing access to coaching, equipment, storage, and a field. We have varsity members who compete in all 4 official USA Archery collegiate divisions: target compound, bowhunter, traditional, and olympic recurve. We travel to 3-6 competitions a year and have brought home numerous medals in past years.

For those who wish to join the competition team, we strive to teach them the technique and skills to adequately prepare them for competitions each semester.
