Why I like Archery?

Why I like Archery?

Morgan McKinney, Reporter

In school there is a lot of sports options like football, baseball, soccer, track, etc. The sport I chose is ¬†Archery. Archery doesn’t involve a ball or running; it involves a bow and arrows. You get a bow at max weight depending on how much you can pull the arrow back. You can have your bow’s weight increased or decreased so you can pull back the string to shoot the arrow with your bow. You get five arrows to shoot, they’re not made out of wood they’re made of metal. In archery you normally shoot a target that is 10 meters away, other times it goes to 15 meters away. The first time you shoot the yellow on a target you feel so good about it.

 

Just like any sport we also meet up with other schools for an archery tournament to see which school will come away with a better score. You’ll need equipment for archery as well, you’ll need a three fingered glove and an arm guard because the string on your bow can cause blister’s to your hands and bruises to your arm. During practice and at a tournament you will be shooting with someone, and in tournaments you’ll have to keep score. Your opponent scores you, you score them. The point is, archery is a really fun sport and that’s why I like it, and to whoever reads this maybe you should join it, too.
