Aim of this study is to assess the distribution of targeted arrows between the zones of the target and quantity of the errors. A total of 18 athletes, seven females (age: 16.66 +/- 3.44; training age: 5.88 +/- 2.92) and 11 males (age: 22.33 +/- 12.95; training age: 4.11 +/- 2.80) were included in the study. Performances of the athletes were recorded with a digital camera, data were evaluated after being transferred to digital media. The differences in the number of arrows hitting the target and their distance from the center were assessed according to the zones, using the one-sided ANOVA test and the chi-square test. The number of arrows hitting the yellow zone have a statistically significant difference in their distribution percentage between the zones (p<0.05). Distribution of the total number of arrows between zones was statistically significantly different (p<0.05). The percentages of the arrows hitting the upper zone and the lower zone within the yellow ring were statistically significantly different. (C) 2014 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
