Group and Corporate Lessons
The Stanford Archery Program now hosts group and corporate archery events! These two-hour sessions for groups of 10-20 people of any age provide a quick and fun introduction to archery in a casual, low-stress environment—perfect for corporate team-building, student group bonding, birthday parties, or familiy reunions. (If your group is smaller than 10 or larger than 15, contact us as we may still be able to accommodate you. For groups with less than 10 people, there is a flat fee of $300.) No prior experience is necessary, and all equipment will be provided for you. Your group will receive personalized instruction from members of the nationally ranked Stanford team; all of our instructors are certified coaches by the National Archery Association.
Pricing + When
$30 per person—includes range time and all equipment. There are no additional charges or taxes.
If the number of people in the group is less than 10, then there is a $300 flat fee. Stanford Archery accepts cash and personal checks. Checks should be made payable to "Stanford Archery."
We unfortunately cannot provide group lessons during the month of March and bulk of April. The next available date for group lessons is April 19th.
Sessions last two hours and can be scheduled on SATURDAYS ONLY. Because the team practices Sunday through Friday we cannot accommodate any other day, but send us an email if it is a problem and we may be able to figure something out. with good possible dates for you to set up a time!
Frequently Asked Questions
No one in my group has any archery experience. Should we still come? Absolutely! In fact, we know that very few people have shot before, so our sessions are tailored to the needs of complete beginners at any age. Of course, archers who do have experience are more than welcome too!
What should we wear? Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting dirty (the range can be muddy if it's rained recently). Please do NOT wear baggy clothing, as it will hinder your shooting. You may want to wear sunscreen. And if it's chilly, you may want to bring a long-sleeved shirt. Additionally, if you have long hair, please tie it back.
Is there a minimum age? Yes. Children less than 9 should not be shooting in a group for various reasons. If your child is under 9, then we would suggest a private lesson to see if they can properly handle our bows without too much strain and under the watchful eye of a coach.
Can it be held in another location? No. For liability reasons and logistics, we can only hold an event at our range located on Stanford campus. Driving directions and map can be found here.
Can you host group lessons on days other than Saturdays? No. It is extremely hard to find enough coaches to staff on the weekdays since we are taking classes, and we also cannot host them on Sundays because we use the field for the whole entire day.
