The Sport


No sport, except perhaps hunting, can lay claim to greater antiquity than archery. And only dance can claim greater longevity as a pastime. Thus archery can be practiced as a competitive sport to the Olympic level as well as a form of recreation.

Target archery is practiced on an open field with archers shooting at targets at various distances ranging from 30 meters to 90 meters outdoors and 18 and 25 meters indoors. There are two types of bows, namely the Recurve or Olympic Bow and the Compound Bow. Men and women compete in separate divisions in each bow category. There are also categories for Junior and Cadet archers. Archery is a sport for all, attracting interest from all age groups and both genders. Our introductory classes accept kids as young as seven and adults as old as retirees.
