Archery Guyana introduces sport in Region 2

Saturday, Mar 16

Archery Guyana, the sole governing body of archery in Guyana, proudly announces the launch of its highly anticipated Archery Instructor Course in Essequibo, Region 2. With a commitment to fostering skill development, promoting the sport of Archery throughout Guyana and community engagement, this initiative signifies a significant step forward in the promotion and expansion of archery throughout the region.

At the simple Opening ceremony at the start of the morning of Saturday March 16, 2024 at Lake Mainstay, Essequibo, Region 2, President of Archery Guyana, Mrs. Vidushi Persaud- McKinnon welcomed the 22 passionate individuals eager to delve into the world of archery instruction. This comprehensive programme tailored by Archery Guyana's experienced National Coaches and professionals, will equip participants with the knowledge, techniques, and leadership skills necessary to effectively teach and promote archery in the various schools and within their communities in Essequibo.

"Archery Guyana is thrilled to bring this enriching opportunity to the vibrant region of Essequibo," stated President Vidushi Persaud-McKinnon. "We firmly believe that empowering individuals with the expertise to instruct others not only enhances their own proficiency since a few participants already recreationally enjoy the sport but also serves as a catalyst for the widespread enjoyment and appreciation of archery through the PE Teachers and community leaders."

The Archery Instructor Course will cover a wide array of topics, including safety protocols, equipment, shooting techniques, coaching methodologies, training tools, shooting process, WADA, para-archery, full form draw, PVC bow-making, target stand making, and setting a field. Through a combination of classroom instruction, practical demonstrations, and hands- on experience, participants will emerge from the programme as certified Archery Instructors, ready to inspire and guide others on their archery journey.

In this regard, sincere thanks are expressed to Service Guyana for supporting this initiative to introduce the sport to Region 2. Service Guyana, a leading provider of HVAC and Energy Efficiency Solutions, has teamed up with Archery Guyana, to bring the exhilarating sport of archery to Essequibo.

The Board of Directors wishes to acknowledge and thank the Chief Executive Officer of Service Guyana, Mr. Sheikh Mujeeb Ahmad, Mr. Steve Ninvalle, Director of Sport and the National Sports Commission, Essequibo Sports Organiser Ms. Wazeeda Bacchus, Mr. Samuel Arjoon and the Team at Guyana Beverages Inc., Oasis Water, Mr. Dilip Singh, WD’s Hotel and Mall located at Lot 110 Charity, Essequibo Coast.
