Recreational Sports


The Archery team was founded by student archers Lisa Franklin and Elizabeth Vallaire in 2006.  We are proud to have been recently accepted as an official sports club team.  The team accepts archers of all experience levels and provides all necessary equipment.

All practices are held on an indoor range located in the HSU Field House.  Shooting distances are in compliance with the National Archery Association standards.

Traveling competitive archers are NAA members and compete in the college division.  Humboldt State has been represented at the California State Indoor Archery Championships since 2007 and at the National Indoor Archery Championships since 2008.  Active HSU archers have consistently placed in the top 20 at both championships.
