What is Para Archery?

Para Archery is one of the oldest parasports.  Since the first para games in Stoke, Madeville, this sport lends itself well to participants with disabilities.

The objective of the sport is to shoot arrows accurately at a target marked with 10 concentric rings. A hit in the centre ring (bull’s eye) scores 10 points, with the following zones decreasing in point value until the outer ring. 

Learn more about para archery on the Paralympic Canada website.
