    ABSTRACT: Objective: This research was carried out in order to determine the hand and eye dominance (left-hand dominant or right-hand dominant) of the women participating in Turkish senior women’s archery championship and to find out whether there were any differences among the scores gained by the archers as general total and at the end of their 1st and 2nd 50-m target-based shootings when using compound bow. Method: 44 elite-level women archers under the Turkish Federation of Archery participated in the research. We determined the hand dominance and eye dominance of all participants. To determine hand and eye dominance, participants completed the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory-Short Form. According to that, 5 of the archers were left-hand dominant whereas 39 of them were right-hand dominant. A mini survey form was used in order to determine certain bio-motor (age, height, weight and sports age) characteristics of the archers. Results: Laterality might be one of the most significant factors for the archers to become successful. Thus, considering that left-hand dominant archers might gain competitive edge in the archer selection process, these archers can be considered to be advantageous for being selected. Sportive success can be enhanced if trainers attach a particular importance to and support these archers and if they consider this situation particularly during target-based shooting trainings. Furthermore, taking into consideration that left-hand dominant persons are more successful that right-hand dominant persons in certain sports branches, it can be said that, such persons must not be forced to use their right hand.
