The course gathered 17 participants from Benin, Cameroon and Niger at the headquarters of the host National Olympic Committee. It was conducted by Pascal COLMAIRE, WA Development & Education Director, assisted by Paul ZINSOU, WA Development Agent for West Africa, and organised by Amadou SOUMALIA, Technical Director of FENITA.
The programme was dense because, before it started, most trainees received an adjustment in their archery skills. Aside the adjustment difficulties, the participants enjoyed very much the content provided and simulated some of the exercises.
The course ended on 28 August 2013 and will be followed by several events such as a Judges Course, the International West African Archery Tournament (TIZOCATA), a meeting of all participating nations and finally will conclude with a workshop on how to produce archery equipment with local materials.
The equipment produced will be then given to FENITA in order to organise archery activities for the youth of Niger in view of the recent partnership agreement between World Archery and OlympAfrica.
