Archery is a great sport for boosting your mental and physical health and fitness. However, it also has a number of other benefits, improving patience and teaching safety.
- Archery can be done by able bodied and disabled people. People with the most severe disabilities and even the blind, using special tactile equipment are able to join in.
- While it is a fun sport, archery is also physically demanding and those wishing to progress may want to think about improving upper body strength for greater control.
- Archers require not only some physical strength, but also mental fitness, and archers develop their focus, flexibility, and attention skills.
- People from many walks of life enjoy archery. Almost every age group can participate, and children as young as 8 have taken well to the sport, while it is not unheard of for people in their 80s to be shooting competitively. It also teaches the benefits of teamwork in some cases with some competitions involving groups of people.
- Archery is particularly useful for youngsters as it teaches them the benefits of patience.
- Archery provides great satisfaction in combining both mental and physical attributes to good effect. Whatever the results at the target, every archer is able to draw satisfaction to a lesser or greater extent, from having won a personal mental battle.
- Archery teaches everyone to be responsible for one another and also for the equipment they are using.
