Founded in 2002 by Keith Coleman and David Lu, the Stanford Archery Program has developed rapidly as a recreational club sport with a mission to do its competitive best; bring safe, Olympic-style archery to the community; and have fun. In four of the six years the team has competed, the team placed at least third in the nation. Our women's recurve team has also won back-to-back gold medals, earning the titles of National Champions in 2006 and 2007.
Stanford Archery is a premier non-varsity collegiate archery program. The team is comprised of Stanford undergraduates and graduate students under the direction of former U.S. national team member Francis Parchaso.
Our fast growing and comprehensive program not only competes, but also actively promotes archery within the Stanford community and the surrounding areas. From private coaching lessons to Junior Olympic Archery Development, the team teaches the essential elements and form of the sport to hundreds every year. At the same time, the team is actively recruiting from the Stanford student body to expand our reaches and potential, both within ourselves and the community.
If you are a Stanford undergraduate or graduate student, and are interested in joining the team, please visit our recruiting page for more information.
