New to Stanford Archery?
For the Stanford students, faculty, and staff... We offer free practices for complete beginners where we teach how to shoot a bow. This is only open to the Stanford community, and if you are a Stanford student, this is the best way to join the team. To find out more, please read about our Beginner Practices.
For the surrounding community...We offer programs for anyone to learn archery! Please see our community programs page to see which of our numerous programs is right for you.
In all our programs, all equipment is provided at no additional cost! That includes the bow, arrows, and safety gear. All coaches are at least Level I certified by the National Archery Association (NAA), and many are NAA Level II certified coaches.
Archery is a safe activity that children as young as 9 years old can enjoy. Safety is our primary concern, so we enforce a set of strict rules to ensure everyone's safety on the range. These rules meet the safety standards set by the NAA.
