Archery Guyana aims to make inroads in Essequibo

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 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 many 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 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.
