Hey FC Archers,
Archery classes will officially restart this Friday, September 11th. All spots are reserved and you should have received a confirmation message about your time and dates slots. Our first lesson will focus on developing a solid Stance.
How can I improve my archery stance?
The foot that is behind the shooting line must remain parallel to the shooting line or slightly rotated a couple of degrees toward “down-range”. If the foot is rotated away from the target or opposite of the direction of shooting you will apply excessive loads on the knee and prohibit proper hip alignment.
The foot that is forward or down-range of the shooting line should be parallel to the line or slightly pointing in the direction of the target down-range. If your feet are spaced too close together or spaced too wide apart then you will become bilaterally unstable – meaning you will experience more swaying of the upper body and have less ability to hold your aim.
If your body weight is properly distributed, your feet should give you the sensation of being well planted firmly on the ground and you will experience less of a rocking sensation.
Posture is among the critical aspects of archery form and execution.
Proper archery posture facilitates better power transmission from your core muscles which gives you the strength to perform the shot execution many times over while maintaining consistent results without excess fatigue.
See you on the range,
