Archery Guyana affiliates new school club: ISA Archers

Tuesday, Mar 5

On March 5, 2024, Archery Guyana, the governing body of Archery in Guyana and the sole entity affiliated to World Archery, the international governing body for the Olympic sport of archery, granted affiliate status to “ISA Archers”. This is a part of Archery Guyana’s mandate as a national member association from World Archery to administer the sport at a local level.

Archery Guyana has been working to introduce the sport of archery into schools for some time now and have since facilitated the creation of and development of school clubs. President of Archery Guyana, Mrs. Vidushi Persaud-McKinnon noted that Archery Guyana from its inception envisioned developing the sport within the school environment with the aim of discovering and encouraging athletes from the primary levels all the way to the university levels. Thereby ensuring the widest possible participation in its effort to find the best Archer to represent Guyana internationally and specifically in the Olympic games. Archery Guyana commits to providing the necessary training for instructors and certified coaches, both junior and senior. With this in mind, Archery Guyana sees archery as an additional event at school sports; Inter-house, Inter-schools and Nationals, thereby fostering a competitive spirit among students and the camaraderie that archery is internationally known for.

Principal of ISA Academy located on East Street, Mr. Akram Hussain expressed his delight in having Archery in his school and welcomed the introduction of this Club.
