About the Club
Archery is a relaxing recreational sport for which the Columbia community has held great interest, and the Archery Club seeks to provide the affiliates of Columbia University with a
safe and friendly environment to learn the sport while fostering a sense of community. As the club is non-competitive and unaffiliated with the team, we accept members of all skill levels, and strongly encourage
those interested but with no experience in archery to join. We provide equipment for those members without their own archery gear and will train inexperienced archers in safety, shooting form and equipment maintenance.
Additionally, the club holds open practices where all members are welcome to come in and practice. To provide our archers with experience with archery competitions, the club prepares and attends several tournaments in the
Spring semester in the collegiate and guest divisions.
