Opportunities

There are too many opportunities in archery if you want to make your career in this so this post is really beneficial for you.

ARCHERY AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES

Archery was first included in the Olympic Games in 1900. It was also featured on the program in 1904, 1908 and 1920 before a hiatus until 1972 when it returned. It has remained on the Olympic Program ever since, with competition in men’s and women’s individual and team recurve archery.

COMPETITION FORMATS

In this outdoor and indoor target archery includes individual, team and mixed team competitions at international events. World Archery also recognizes a number of competition rounds not or no longer used at international events.

  • Individual
  • Team and mixed team
  • Other

1. Individual Competition Format

Athletes shoot a qualification or ranking round to ascertain seeding in their division: bow style and gender. The ranking round consists of 72 arrows outdoors or 60 arrows indoors, cumulatively scored. The athlete in each division who finishes with the most points is given the top seed, the athletes with the least the lowest seed. Athletes then advance to eliminations and a final of head-to-head matches shot in brackets. In indoor competition, only the top 32 seeded athletes advance. In outdoor competition, the top 104 seeded athletes’ advance, while the top eight seeded athletes are given an automatic bye into the third round.

Recurve matches are decided using the set system. Athletes receive two set points for winning each set of three arrows. If both athletes score the same in a three-arrow set, they both receive one set point. The first athlete to reach six set points wins the match. Compound matches are decided using cumulative scoring. Athletes shoot 15 arrows in five ends of three arrows. The athlete with the highest 15-arrow score wins the match. If a recurve match is tied on five set points or a compound match is tied on cumulative score then the match is decided in a single-arrow shoot-off. Each athlete shoots one arrow and the arrow that lands closest to the middle wins the match. If no winner can be decided, the process is repeated until a winner is found.

The elimination brackets advance until there are four athletes remaining to shoot the semifinals. The losers of the two semifinals compete in a bronze medal match while the winners of the two semifinals compete in the gold medal match to decide who wins the tournament.

2. Team and Mixed Team Format

As well as the individual competition, international events can also include team and mixed team competitions. (Mixed team competition is currently included in outdoor archery only.) Teams comprise three athletes of the same division. It is usually the top scoring three athletes in qualification; however, team managers may choose to substitute athletes. Mixed teams comprise two athletes of the same bow style, one of each gender. It is usually the highest scoring athlete of each gender in qualification, however, team managers may choose to substitute athletes. Teams and mixed teams are seeded for their elimination matches using the total of the individual ranking round scores of their athletes.

Recurve team and mixed team matches are decided using the set system. Teams receive two set points for winning each set of six arrows (two each); mixed teams receive two set points for winning each set of four arrows (two each). If both teams and mixed teams score the same in a six- or four-arrow set, they both receive one set point. The first team or mixed team to reach five set points wins the match.

Compound team and mixed team matches are decided using cumulative scoring. Teams shoot 24 arrows in four ends of six arrows; the team with the highest 24-arrow total wins the match. Mixed teams shoot 16 arrows in four ends of four arrows; the mixed team with the highest 16-arrow total wins the match.

If a recurve team or mixed team match is tied on four set points or a compound match is tied on cumulative score then the match is decided in a shoot-off. Each athlete in the team or mixed team shoots one arrow. The team with the highest score wins the match. If no winner can be decided with each team’s arrow that is closest to the center, then the second closest arrows are decided, then the third. If no winner can be decided, the process is repeated until a winner is found.

 

REGIONAL TRAINING CENTRES (RTCs)

If you want to make a career in archery so you need a proper training. With a view to providing proper training facilities and scientific support to the budding & elite Archers at their nearby places throughout the year, Archery Association of India initiated intensive training program by encouraging the establishment of Regional Archery Centres/ Academies utilizing the existing available infrastructure & sources in the right way. The leading Regional Training Centres for Recurve Archers are as follows:-

  1. TATA Archery Academy, Jamshedpur
  2. Army Sports Institute, Pune
  3. Mittal Champions' Trust, Bangalore

The undermentioned Centre are also being run which have been producing a good number of Archers in both recurve and compound divisions:-

  1. Sports Authority of India, Kolkata
  2. Sports Authority of India, Delhi
  3. Jharkhand Archery Association, Jamshedpur
  4. Andhra Pradesh Archery Association, Hyderabad
  5. Gurukul Prabhat Ashram, Meerut

These centers cover almost all top archers of the county. All the Archery Regional Centres are operational throughout the year. These three pioneer Archery Centres - TATA Archery Academy, Army Sports Institute, Mittal Champions' Trust are imparting training with systematic approach availing the services of a foreign coach. These centers have been arranging regular short duration Training-cum-Competition exposures with the archers of leading archery countries of the World so as to infuse "Shoot to kill Exercise" in them. Though these centers have sophisticated infrastructure and training facilities due to lack of sufficient archery equipment and scientific support, the desired results are still awaited.
