Anyone–regardless of age, gender or athletic ability–can shoot archery. Start by taking an introductory class, then grow from there. Who knows, you could be a future Olympic medalist. Or just someone who enjoys shooting bows and arrows with friends on the weekend.
The choice is up to you! If you’re not the competitive type, archery is still your sport. Archery lets you go at your own pace, and you don’t have to keep score. You can enjoy it for exercise, or just for fun at the range with friends.
Archery is a great sport for building confidence quickly. The feeling of shooting a bow and accomplishing your goal–whether it’s drilling a bull’s eye or executing a great shot–helps you build self-esteem and enjoy a sense of accomplishment. Archery is also great for improving focus, patience and even math skills.
Archery isn’t “one-size-fits-all.” You can shoot a recurve, compound or bare bow. You can even try traditional archery and go Merida-style. Or you can use sights like Olympic archer Khatuna Lorig, or shoot instinctively like Katniss Everdeen. It’s not just about bows and arrows. It’s about the amazing array of accessories you can customize to make your archery experience unique.
