The Para and Vision Impaired Program will have three main aims, ·      Develop and engage with our current Para and Vision Impaired members ·      Introduce new Para and Vision Impaired athletes to the sport of Archery ·      Identify, develop and prepare Para and Vision Impaired people for World Championships and the 2016 and 2020 Paralympic Games The Para and Vision Impaired Committee Chair, Dr Tom Wild would like to highlight an excerpt from the Archery Australia Board News, October, 2013: We are pleased to formally announce the creation of this Committee, which will be chaired by Dr Tom Wild and include Kevin Faulkner and Hazel Hockley as members.
