Welcome to the Augusta University Jaguar Archery Group Rally Campaign!!!
Hello! Thank you for visiting our Rally Campaign. We are the Augusta University Jaguar Archery Group (AUJAG, the competitive archery team at Augusta University. Founded in October 2015 by a few dedicated students, AUJAG is a student-led Club Sport under Augusta University Campus Recreation. Unlike almost all other archery programs across the country, AUJAG is composed of students from an incredibly diverse array of programs, ranging from various undergraduate majors to graduate and professional programs (including several Medical College of Georgia students)! Currently, our competitive team has 12 members representing the Olympic Recurve, Barebow, and Bowhunter divisions!
Why We're Raising Funds
AUJAG is NOT a varsity sport at Augusta University; this means we receive very little (if any) funding from the university. For those of you who may not be familiar with competitive and target archery, tournament costs are very expensive, especially for teams with 10+ archers. The average tournament entry fee for our collegiate events is around $110 per athlete, and adding travel and hotel costs really starts to bring the cost to compete to a range that can be difficult for college and professional students to afford. As such, we are here hoping you will support us by contributing to our Rally! These funds will help us be able to send all of our team to the National Indoor Collegiate Championships this year!
How We Got Here
Founded by three first-year medical students and our faculty advisor, Dr. Mike Brands in October 2015, AUJAG's mission echoes the mission USA Archery set forth for the Collegiate Archery Program: to spread the passion, excitement, and enjoyment of archery to as many as possible. AUJAG began competing collegiately in January 2016, and with two months, our team had earned two barebow National Indoor Collegiate Championship titles and other placings in the top 10 within the region and nation. Since then, our members have won: a National 3D Collegiate Men's Recurve Team Championship title and Barebow Men's Team Bronze placing, an individual National 3D Collegiate Men's Recurve Bronze placing, several state championship and podium placings, regional awards, podiums, and honors, and more!
Our team would not be as successful as we are without the dedicated work of every member of our team. Specifically, we want to thank: our advisor, Dr. Mike Brands, for all of his help over the past few years and his continued support, our Club Director and Head Coach, Daniel Allen, for all of his work and dedication to helping with any and everything that comes up.
