A proposed Junior Archery Programme, Schools Programme and Para-Archery Propgramme was discussed. Plans are also being made to pursue more Outreach programmes.
Early in the new year, Archery Guyana will be hosting an International Olympic Coach in Guyana for 10 days to conduct a coaching clinic. Persons interested in becoming involved in the sport are urged to do so before so they can learn and be able to benefit from the said Coaching.
The Minister expressed his commitment to working with Archery Guyana and that he looks forward to working with Archery Guyana in promoting and developing the novel sport in Guyana.
