Since its beginning perhaps more than 15,000 years ago, the discipline of archery has fed mankind, dramatically changed world politics, and has been practiced by a countless number of people. Nearly every culture in the world developed bows, and used them for hunting, combat, and competition. Archery teaches form, precision, relaxation, and strength. This improves the archer's skill at his sport, and also betters the archer as a person. Founded in 1978, the Archery Club is the oldest sports club at Case. We are devoted to making archery accessible to students, faculty and staff. Our members include beginners who have never shot before, alongside skilled competitors and shooters who simply find archery to be relaxing and enjoyable.
