What are Beginner Practices?
Beginner Practices are free weekly practices offered only to the Stanford community. Stanford students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty, and staff are invited to come learn how to shoot. Equipment is provided - all you need to do is sign up, receive confirmation, and show up!
Please note that priority is given to undergraduate and subseqeuntly, graduate students. We usually have a couple open slots for faculty and staff nearer to the end of each quarter.
How Do I Sign up?
When & Where Beginner Practices are generally held throughout the school year on Friday afternoons at 3pm - 5pm on our range near the IM athletic fields.

Sign ups fill up fast We usually open sign-ups at the beginning of the week (Monday) for the Friday practice. They fill up quickly, and you will receive a confirmation email if you have reserved a spot in our Beginner Practice. If you don't get in one week, keep on signing up, and we'll do our best to accomodate as many people as possible. We receive many sign-ups toward the beginning of the quarter, so do not get discouraged if you don't get into the first few.
Let me know when sign ups open!
If you are a Stanford student and would like to receive a notification when beginner practice sign ups open, please subscribe to our beginner practice mailing list.
Sign ups are full for this week, but please sign up again next week if there was not enough room for you this week. Thank you for your interest!
What should I wear? Any comfortable clothing, except for baggy clothes, which may get caught by the string. If the weather is wet, shoes or rain boots are recommended. A tight-fitting sweater or jacket to keep you warm might be a good idea.
