Archery events for men were held in the Olympic Games from 1900 to 1920 and for women in 1904 and 1908. In 1972 Olympic Games, it was re-introduced for both men & women and continued thereafter.

The Federation International de Tir a I Arc (FITA) was founded as the International Governing Body for the sports of Archery. The organization implemented standardized rules for competitions which allowed the first World Championship to be held that same year.

There are few areas which need to be improved for the betterment of Archery:-

  1. To increase the number of international exposures to Senior, Junior and Sub-Junior Archers at full cost to Govt.

    It is strongly recommended that the number of foreign exposure at full cost to Govt. for Senior, Junior and Sub-Junior be increased at least up to Commonwealth Games- 2010.

    • Senior Team - 4 World Cup Tournaments plus mandatory competitions in a year.
    • Junior Team - 3 International Tournaments plus mandatory competition in a year.
    • Sub-Junior Team - 1 International Tournament plus mandatory competition in a year.
  2. To provide the services of competent foreign coaches for Recurve and Compound division competitions.

    Two competent foreign coaches for Recurve and Compound Division separately are required at a minimum monthly remuneration of US $ 5000 besides other free facilities, i.e. boarding, lodging, air and local transportation etc.

  3. To ensure the availability of world class equipment to Probables of each categories.

    The identified top 8 men & 8 women Archers under each Category i.e. Sub-Junior, Junior and Senior in both Recurve & Compound be provided with latest equipment and sufficient quantity of consumable items to continue his/her training uninterrupted.

  4. To provide scientific support.

    Coaching the sports persons for high performance is a multifarious task. It includes identifying, planning, communicating, monitoring and evaluating the athlete in a planned and systematic manner. Sport science and coaching they work together effectively and in Archery particularly, where more concentration is required. Sports sciences is the magical factor that ensures success in the pursuit of GOLD at international meets. AAI requires the support of personnel Annexure III in all the centers who could help them in getting better results in International competitions.

  5. To make available the Teaching and Training Gadgets and allied equipment in all Archery Centres

    All Archery Centres should be equipped with the ancillary facilities for better functioning and results.

  6. To Provide psychological and mental training after diagnosis of athlete's psychological status.

    There is a need to develop the psychological profile of each archers measuring the response and adaptation of the athlete to training and different environment and other physiological aspects of Archers.

  7. To implement unified system of coaching methodology.

    There is no unified system of coaching methodology/philosophy. Many coaches have their own system that is not tied in to the high performance plan or based on international statistics.

  8. To upgrade the standard & technical knowledge of our Indian Coaches.

    It can not be denied that the majority of Indian archery coaches are not competent to produce Champions on the world level due to lack of knowledge, advance training method and techniques and changing rules. All SAI and other Coaches should attend at least one Coaches Seminar & Refresher Course under an international Expert each year and undertake a Coaches Ranking Test every alternate year under FITA norms. They are required to attend higher level Course and workshops run by International and Asian Archery Federations.

  9. To develop the Professional Systematic Training Plan.

    There is a need to develop the Professional Systematic Training Plan separately for those elite Archers who have potential and caliber to win Medals in Asian, Commonwealth and Olympic Games.

  10. To spot the untapped talents at the grass root – Talent Identification.

    There should be a reliable Talent Identification System to spot the potential through rigorous physiological and psychological testing that are vital to success. High score in the tournament/trials cannot be the only parameter to tap the talent.

  11. To popularize the game focusing Schools and Colleges.

    It is the need of the hour to conduct competitions in various age categories at School, Inter-School, Inter-Distt School Inter-State School on regular basis which will not only help in generating interest in Archery but also finding the hidden & fresh talents at School and college level. Archery Association of India has a plan to depute some outstanding international archers for moving around schools throughout the country with a view to develop interest amongst students.
