Practice Sessions

To attend any practice session, you must complete the following:

IMLeagues Participation Form
Before you attend any practice, USC requires you to join our club on IMLeagues and complete the Club Sports Participation Form. It only takes 5 minutes. For a refresher on how to join our team on IMLeagues, click here.

At the top there should be a green box with a link to the form. If it says Verified, you’re good, but if it says Required, please click and complete the form. This is what a verified form looks like. If you need help, bring your insurance information to practice and we’ll walk you through it.

NOTE: Practices are subject to change due to weather, instructor/coach availability, or other circumstances. Any changes will be announced in advance.


Open Practice (All Levels)

When: 5:00-8:00 PM Wednesday/Friday
Where: PED South Gym

Each semester, the first two weeks of Open Practice are dedicated to introductory safety and instruction for beginners. Completion of the safety lesson is required to attend subsequent practices! Additional safety lessons may be scheduled if enough interest is garnered throughout the semester.

Following the first two weeks, each Open Practice will feature a new topic in our archery curriculum.

Instructional Sessions (All Levels)

When: 6:00 – 8:00 PM (Time subject to change based on session)
Where: PED South Gym

Instructional sessions covering a wide range of topics in archery will instead be offered through educational staff. These sessions are typically open to all club members, though they may be more competition oriented. Instructional Classes will be covered through our coaching staff going over a wide range of topics such as the shot cycle, equipment, fitness, mental management, and more.

For more information, please see our club announcement emails.

Team Practice (Intermediate/Advanced)

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00 – 10:00 PM
Where: Rancho Park Archery Range

When: Sundays 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Where: Pasadena Roving Archers Range

After you pay dues to become an official club member, and after sufficient experience at Open Practice, you can express your interest in becoming part of the Competitive Team. During Team Practices, you will receive direct guidance from our certified coaches on advance equipment and technique in preparation for competitions.

USC, UCSD, UCLA, etc. Joint Practice (All Levels)

Joint Practice takes place on occasional weekends at other college campuses around Southern California.

For example, the USC and UCSD teams participate in fun ice-breakers and team building exercises, and support each other in strengthening archery skills.

Carpools are arranged to assure as many archers are able to go as possible. All levels of experience are welcome, but you MUST have completed the safety lesson at a previous practice to attend this one.
