Want to know what a bull's eye feels like? Infected with the post-Hunger Games archery fever? Champion archer from the day you were born? Never touched a bow in your life -- but can't wait to get your hands on one?
If you answered 'yes' to any of the above, then you need to do two things: contact us and join Princeton Archery. Now. We provide equipment and coaching to people of all levels -- most of our recruits who have never touched a bow before joining the team end their season competing in Indoor Nationals. All it takes is dedication. And a little fun.
Our team, re-founded in 2012 by Anjalie Field '15, is currently made up of 30 Princeton undergraduate and graduate students. This year, we plan to recruit around 15 more.
The team is active from September through May each year. Typical competitions include the Ivy Archery Invitational [founded and currently hosted by us], USAA Indoor and Outdoor Nationals, and several invitationals and state competitions around New Jersey.
There are team practices everyday at Wa-Xo-Be Archers, an archery range at Monmouth Junction. Two hours of practice per week are required, but some people on the team even practice for twenty hours a week [and then usually go on to become All Americans]. Aside from practice, we do a ton of fun things like movie nights and weekly Sunday brunches.
If you are interested in giving archery a shot and getting in on that archery love, reach out to our President Shriya Sekhsaria '18 [email@example.com] for more details.
