Coaching in Lethem

Youngsters from St. Ignatius Village, Rupununi, Region 9, were recently treated to a special archery training exercise under the supervision of Archery Guyana's Senior Coach, Robert Singh. Mr Singh, who resides in Georgetown, whilst on a visit to Region 9, collaborated with one of Archery Guyana's assistant coaches, Shunette Thompson to arrange an Archery Clinic in an effort to introduce the shooting techniques of a recurve bow to the residents of Region 9. He utilised rubber stretch bands to initiate the training, after which the actual recurve equipment were used for practice. He explained to the youths the various archery equipment, safety rules, shooting stance, alignment, stance and release.
