Join us as we explore how archery equipment and technique has evolved into the precision sport of today. Modern materials, such as carbon fiber, have changed the look and performance of today’s bows and arrows. They are able to launch arrows at greater speeds while still maintaining a high degree of accuracy and consistency. We will also take a look at the design work that goes into developing these bows. While advances in archery technology have led to increased performance, the most important piece of archery equipment is still the archers themselves. Shooting technique continues to be studied and developed so that more biomechanically efficient methods can be discovered which will help to reduce injury and improve performance for our athletes. We will take a look at several core concepts that have been key for our archers’ success.
