He announced the project of a development center in Puerto Rico, being its main goal to provide assistance and orientation to the Caribbean Region, mainly to countries which have recently initiated archery as a sport.

He spoke, with great satisfaction, of the success of the “VIVA AMERICA” Program, where on behalf of Coparco and great support, 22 spaces for athletes were obtained, all of which took part in the Youth and Cadet World Championship in Merida, Mexico. In that championship a supported athlete from the Americas, Paris Goico, from Dominican Republic, won a Gold medal.

COMMITTES REPORTS

Judges Committee

Sergio Font, the Judges Committee’s President, emphasized the wonderful work of all judges in every World Ranking event, and informed that on Canada’s request, a Coparco supported Continental Judge Course will be held in 2007 in the city of Toronto.

Mr. Font also informed that up to this date there is a list of 43 Coparco Judges, and that thanks to the level of Judges in the Americas, all events are better and archers know rules more and are better prepared to take part in world class events.

All judges are encouraged to keep on preparing and to maintain their quality for the benefit of the region.

 

Development Committee

Maria Emma Gaviria, President of the Development Committee, presented a report containing the summary of activities held through out the continent.  She expressed the Committee’s intention of determining the situation of each one of the countries, requesting information through a survey.  Answers received, however, have been very few.  All Coparco members were urged to cooperate on the matter, expecting, therefore, better feedback in the future from all countries.  The President mentioned existing plans for high performance support to all countries, aimed at increasing the America’s technical level.  The project has already been presented to FITA, where it’s still under discussion.  The basic idea is to provide help in a more elaborate manner, which will require a higher investment of both, time and resources, in each planed support visit to different countries, and a monitoring program to boost up the provided assistance.  This high performance projects are expected to start next year, after justifying before FITA the need to make them a short term reality.

 

Rules and Regulations Committee

Guillermo Jiménez, President of this Committee, was commended for his great effort on revising the COPARCO Constitution.  Mark Miller was also thanked for his contribution, through his knowledge and experience, on revising and approving the Coparco Constitution.  Sergio Font was also mentioned as the mediator through out the agile and efficient analysis and approval process.

 

The changes made to the Constitution approved in the 2005 Assembly were ratified.

New member of Coparco

The admittance of the Aruba Archery Federation as a member of the Pan-American Archery Confederation was approved unanimously.

 

Judge Re-qualification System

Sergio Font explained that the continental judge re-qualification system format will be similar to FITA’s.  It will be activated in 2007 with the following terms:

·        Continental judges who achieved their rank in 2005 and 2006 will not have to re-qualify in 2007.

·        Continental judges who achieved their rank before 2000 and have not worked in World Ranking tournaments after 2000, will be excluded from COPARCO’s list.

·        Continental judges who achieved their rank between 2000 and 2004 will take a written exam prepared by the COPARCO Judges Committee in 2007.

·        Judges who pass the exam mentioned above will be re-accredited as Continental judges.  Those who do not approve it will have the opportunity to take a second test.

More detailed information on re-qualification will be sent to the judges involved and their National Federations.

The approval of the National Federations will also be requested, as well as their guarantee of participation of their judges in national events.  

The judge re-qualification proposal was submitted to vote and was approved by majority.  

 

The importance of development work at college level was mentioned.  Charlie Díaz, from Guatemala, offered to do a full research on the subject and present a plan or proposal for 2008.

 

The importance of young archers and cadets for COPARCO’s future was also emphasized, and therefore, programs to raise their level must be our priority. 

 

Otton Baquerizo, from Ecuador, mentioned the importance of having each Federation verify the approval of the National Federation of every participating athlete during international events.  The organizing country is responsible for requesting such approval from all competitors.  As a suggestion, the registration forms should include the signature of the President or General Secretary of the Federation of each participating country.  The idea is to promote respect to hierarchy and authority among the athletes, and to avoid any inconveniences.

 

It was agreed that the next Congress will take place in El Salvador during the month of October, before the Continental Classifying event for the Olympic Games.  

 

With no other matter to discuss, all members present were thanked for their participation and the Congress was adjourned at 7:15 p.m.
