World Archery Americas hosted the first Spanish version of its Technical Delegates Online Training Course on September 6, 8 and 10. It was a success, attracting 91 participants from 16 countries.

Each national federation was encouraged to propose candidates who could take up the role at international events.

Judges, who already act as technical officials, were welcome.

The goal of the course was to educate people to better deliver tournaments, raising the level of competitions across the continent. It consisted of three conferences that covered operational topics both archery specific and more general.

In addition to subjects like transportation, accommodation and food, areas such as results, competition program, venue design and management, ceremonies, judging and topic were touched upon.

World Archery’s medical committee member Dr Carlos Hermes, World Archery Americas’ secretary general Sergio Font and international judge Alex Vecchio were among the speakers.

Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, El Salvador, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Costa Rica, Mexico, Venezuela, Uruguay, Cuba and even Argelia were the federations represented at the three-day event.

The English version of the course will take place November 10-12.
