The Archery year is split in to an indoor and an outdoor season. The Indoor
season runs from the start of the academic year in Michaelmas (October) until
the end of Lent (March). After this we move outdoors for the duration of Easter
term and the Easter and summer vacations.
Information about session times, locations, and dates for all of these time
periods can be found below.
In Michaelmas and Lent we shoot indoors at the University of Cambridge Sports
Centre at West Cambridge and at the Elizabeth Way Rifle Range, the entrance to
which is on the Cutter Ferry Path. Directions to both of these venues can be
found from the interactive maps below. The sports centre are open to all
members, whilst use of the rifle range is restricted to members who have paid
range fees, as detailed in the membership form.
We will be shooting Friday sessions in the Sports Hall from 11 October
2019 to 6 December 2019 and again from 17
January 2020 to 13 March 2020. The beginner's course
on Sundays runs from 20 October 2019 to 1 December
2019 and we will have normal Sunday sessions from 19 January
2020 to 8 March 2020.
Strength and conditioning sessions will run throughout each terms from
10 October 2019 to 5 December 2019, then from
16 January 2020 to 12 March 2020 and from
23 April 2020 to 11 June 2020.

In Easter term we shoot outdoors on Churchill College sports fields, situated
in the grounds of the college. We use the top field near the Astronomy
Department and set up beside the college chapel. Directions can be found from
the interactive map below.
We have regular sessions throughout the week as listed below, where members
will always be present to open up. In the event of inclement (bad) weather and
the session being cancelled, an email will be sent to the outdoor shooting
mailing list before 2pm that day, so please ensure you are signed up to this.

During the vacation periods shooting continues as we have a large number of postgraduate and staff members. However, sessions may no longer follow the regular schedule and are instead arranged between members by use of a vacation mailing list. If you are around Cambridge in any of the vacations and wish to shoot, you can sign up by clicking here, and searching for soc-cub-vacation.
During the outdoor vacation periods we will be using the schedule of regular sessions outlined above for Easter Term.
