National Archery in the Schools Program
The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®) is an introductory level program that teaches youth from 4th grade through high school about the lifetime sport of target archery and provides an opportunity to grow their interest through local, state, national and world tournaments. The program is designed to be done during school hours during the physical education class.
Aside from the primary goal of teaching the basic skills needed to learn a traditional, lifetime shooting sport, NASP® aims to improve student motivation, attention, behavior and focus as well as increase their class attendance. The program helps students develop their micro- and macro-motor skills in addition to their listening and observation skills. Furthermore, NASP® has excelled at improving student's overall self-esteem, promoting graduation instead of drop-out.
NASP® offers an 8-hour training to teach teachers how to teach the NASP® curriculum in a positive and rewarding atmosphere.
