Coach Brown was recently in Dakar, Senegal at the Senegalese American Bilingual School (SABS) founded by Stephanie Nails Kane.  This amazing school has a very rich curriculum which now includes archery.  Coach Brown taught the fundamentals of archery, and equipment maintenance and repair to a group of teachers, coaches and archers.  Using equipment Coach Brown brought with him as a donation to their program, he taught them how to shoot better, and to teach/support each other so that they could better train their students.   While in Senegal, Coach Brown also met with another small group of archers and coaches who hope to build a National Senegalese Archery Team.

Each one teach one and sustainability is possible.

On June 14, 2014 Coach Brown organized the Children’s Aid Society sponsored 10th Annual Bronx Community Championship Archery Tournament. Over 90 archers from the Bronx, Brooklyn and Long Island came together to compete a decade of competitive archery in the Bronx.  Although the vast majority of the archers were elementary, middle school and high school students, the actual age range of participants was 6 years old to 77 years old. It was truly an amazing event.Thank you Children’s Aid Society, parents, program directors, volunteers and of course the archers for making this a very memorable event.   See pictures from before the tournament (registration, equipment dispersal) during the tournament (shooting, scoring) balloon contest, and presentation of trophies to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd winners, and Brooklyn Champions.

Arrows were not the only things flying in Ohio.  After the tournament we met some dedicated pilots of miniature remote-controlled airplanes.  Absolutely amazing.

Center Shot Archers learn many useful skills in addition to championship archery.  Here they are constructing the crossbar for the screen that catches arrows that miss the target (a frequent occurrence for beginning archers).

Sacramento, California JOAD Tournament – July 2011


We met some wonderful people in Sacramento.  Maryann, Edward and their daughter Jordan Locklin are remarkable people and Jordan is an outstanding archer.  Since JOAD, Jordan has placed 1st at the State Games of America, Chula Vista, CA, 1st in the Cub Division at the Fall 25 meter Indoor Classic and 1st in the Quest for the Best Olympic Elimination Rounds  in Georgia. Her record this year includes two national and three state championships. WOW!!!! We are very proud of her.
