Early in the new year, Archery Guyana will be hosting an International Olympic Judge who will be conducting a Judge’s training Seminar. This event comes on the heels of the Level 1 Coaching training Seminar organized by Archery Guyana whereby 19 National Archery Coaches were certified by the renowned International Olympic Coach Phillip Greaves. Persons interested in becoming involved as Judges in the sport are urged to engage with Archery Guyana early to be able to benefit from the said Judge’s Seminar.
The Minister expressed his commitment to continue working with Archery Guyana especially in taking the sport going into the hinterland areas of Guyana. The Ministry and Archery Guyana agreed to collaborate to build a stronger working relationship in promoting and developing the novel sport for the benefit of all Guyanese.
