Warrior Resiliency Top Shot Archery Event
September 28 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Archery is an activity that has been around for centuries and has been used for various purposes, including hunting and combat. However, in recent years, it has gained popularity as a recreational activity and even as a form of therapy. For military veterans, archery can be an excellent way to promote physical and mental well-being. Whether you were a Special Operations Marine or Personnel Specialist, you can get into the sport and reap the benefits. One of the therapeutic benefits of archery is that it can help to promote physical fitness. Shooting a bow requires some upper body strength and core stability, which can help to improve overall fitness. Archery can provide a low-impact way to work on strength and flexibility without putting excessive stress on the body. In addition to physical benefits, and perhaps more importantly, archery can also promote mental wellness. Shooting a bow requires a great deal of focus and concentration, which can help to clear the mind and reduce stress. This can be especially beneficial for veterans who may be dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other mental health issues. Archery can provide a way to focus the mind and relax, which can help to reduce anxiety and improve overall well-being.
