Archery: Course Description

Professors Cheryl Silva and Jarek Koniusz teach the 'Archery' OpenCourseWare. As part of the MIT Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation department, the course teaches basic indoor archery skills including form, competition rules and safety. Class notes discuss proper stance, specifically noting that when fully drawn back, the archer will feel tension in the rhomboid back muscle rather than the pulling arm. This undergraduate-level course is ideal for any student interested in taking up this challenging and contemplative sport.

Course materials available for download include lecture notes and video files demonstrating archery techniques. To find out more about this class, visit the beginning archery course page.
