What are Beginner Practices?

Beginner Practices are free weekly practices offered exclusively to the Stanford community. These practices are tailored for those new to archery, so there's no experience necessary and all equipment is provided!
Stanford students (both undergraduate and graduate), faculty, and staff, are eligible to sign up. Please note that we can only accomodate a limited number of archers per Beginner Practice and that spots fill quickly. Priority is given to undergraduate students interested in joining the team. Attending a Beginner Practice is the first step in the Recruiting Process, which you can learn more about here.

When & Where

Beginner Practices are held throughout the school year on Friday afternoons at 3pm - 5pm on our range near the IM athletic fields.

If there are no more spots available that week, please sign up the following Monday and we'll make extra effort to find space for you. 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!
