Lancaster Archery Supply Sponsors USA Archery
Categories: Press Releases
Lancaster Archery Supply is continuing its support of the nation’s top archery program and its world-class athletes in 2017.
Fresh on the heels of last summer’s successful Olympic Games, which saw the United States claim a team silver and an individual bronze medals, the Lancaster, Pa., based archery distributor has signed on to sponsor USA Archery - the official governing body of the sport of archery in the U.S. The mission of USA Archery is to provide the necessary resources to foster strong athlete participation, competition and training in the sport of archery.
Through its sponsorship, Lancaster Archery is supporting compound and recurve archers of all ages as they train for and compete in a variety of top-level tournaments, including national Championships, World Championships, World Cups, Pan American Games and the Olympics.
“U.S. archery saw a great boost during the Olympic Games in Rio, thanks to a strong showing by the U.S. team,” said Rob Kaufhold, Lancaster Archery Supply’s founder and president. “Lancaster Archery Supply is proud to help USA Archery keep the momentum from the Olympics going as they train both recurve and compound archers to compete in national and world competitions over the next four years, ahead of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.”
Lancaster Archery Supply’s sponsorship of USA Archery is multi-faceted. The company has agreed to be an equipment sponsor, which means Lancaster Archery will provide gear and special discounts on products to all USA Archery athletes.
Lancaster Archery also is a National Events Sponsor. So LAS flags will be flown and the company logo will be seen at all USA Archery national competitions, which include the National Target Championships and U.S. Open, National Indoor Championships, JOAD Indoor and Outdoor National Target Championships and all U.S. Archery Team qualifying events.
Finally, Lancaster Archery Supply is a sponsor of the National Teams’ uniforms. This sponsorship means USA Archery athletes can place the LAS logo on their competition jerseys, which are worn at all World Cup and World Championships tournaments.
“Lancaster Archery is excited to continue to work with USA Archery to help grow the sport of archery in the United States. The better the archers are, the more attention they will draw to the sport, which is mutually beneficial for our company and for USA Archery,” Kaufhold said.
Lancaster Archery Supply’s facilities include the Lancaster Archery Academy, which is a year-round training facility for beginner, intermediate and competition archers.
