Archery

The very heart of archery is learning a step-by-step method for drawing a bow and shooting an arrow. Even the youngest archers quickly learn this core technique of Archery by slowing down and focusing on one step at a time, they are more successful at putting arrows in the middle of the target.

At Kalvi School ,Archery is available in indoor and outdoor settings, and this appeals to many audiences, come rain or sunshine. There are many different styles of archery, including target archery (as seen at the Olympic and Paralympic Games), field archery - which is enjoyed on a wooded course outdoors - and 3D archery, for shooting foam animal targets .Practicing and competing with a team and/or coach teaches students respect, sportsmanship and teamwork. Archers are bound to respect the sport's rules, as well as each other and tournament organizers. Whether solo or as a team, archers interact while honing their goals and determination.

When archers make mistakes, they are taught that the solution is to analyze their steps and focus on improving one thing at a time. This is a great recipe for success on the archery field, in the classroom, and in life.

During outdoor tournaments, archers absorb all-natural Vitamin D from the sun for bone health. Regardless of the setting, archery builds core, chest, back and shoulder muscles. Case in point: drawing 40 arrows at 25 pounds each equals 1,000 pounds of weight.

Archers walk as much as 5 miles through the course of one tournament. All that walking improves heart health, muscle tone and leg strength.

Drawing a bow strengthens core muscles, which improves archers' balance and stability. In turn, balance and stability improve posture, hand-eye coordination, and the chances of hitting the target.

With a gamut of benefits for the archer,Kalvi School believes in encouraging the students to try their skills in Archery.
