Abstract: This study aimed to determine the effect of water consumption levels on dehydration status and archery accuracy on archery athletes in the Banyumas Regency. This research was based on the observations and experiences of the researchers, who found that there was still a lack of awareness among archery athletes in Banyumas Regency to meet their hydration requirements properly. In addition, there were still many archery athletes in Banyumas Regency who did not carry enough drinking water during practice.The research design is experimental research using quasi-experimental research methods. The design used in this research was “one group pretest-posttest” design. Furthermore, the instruments used included tests and measurements of water consumption levels using BFNB Quis, dehydration status using the PURI (check your own urine) method, and archery accuracy by shooting at a distance of 30 meters with 36 arrows. The population in this study were 35 archery athletes in Banyumas Regency in the standard bow and recurve division, with a sample of 20 people shooting in the standard bow and recurve division. Data analysis technique using paired sample t-test. The results of the study obtained a t-value for archery accuracy (15.215) > t-table (1.72472) and a p-value (0.00) < 0.05. The results of the t-test on dehydration status showed that the t-count value was greater than the t-table value, and t-count (5.2580) > t-table (1.72472), and the paired sample t-test value sig. 0.00 < 0.05. These concluded that the H0 was rejected and Ha was accepted, meaning there was a significant difference between the pretest and posttest values. This study's results showed that there was an effect of the level of water consumption on dehydration status and archery accuracy in archery athletes in Banyumas Regency.
