International sports have a duty of care to international athletes to offer training, education and life skills that improve knowledge and help in the transition period at the end of a career. The International Olympic Committee operates a number of free and online platforms that support these initiatives.
Target archery is the most recognisable format of modern archery. It takes place both outdoors and indoors, over distances of up to 90 metres and using the traditional five-colour, 10-ring target.
International target archery includes two bowstyles: recurve and compound. Recurve target archery is included on the Olympic Programme, compound target archery is featured at the World Games and both are included in the Paralympic Games.
Target archery is practised in clubs in over 150 countries around the world and is a fast growing sport.
World Archery Congress elects a number of permanent committees, ad hoc committees and commissions to focus on the governance of certain areas of World Archery’s operations. International athletes also elect members to an Athletes Committee.Boards Permanent committees Ad hoc committees Other areas of coordination
