Welcome to the initial National Archery in the Schools Program® web site. The goal of this website is to be a valuable resource for students, faculty administrators and NASP® Archery Instructors. We are looking forward to providing you with the most current and up-to-date information about the National Archery in the Schools Program®.
Designed to teach International style target archery in physical education class 4th-12th grades, core content covers archery history, safety, technique, equipment, mental concentration, core strengthening physical fitness and self-improvement. Before presenting the 2-week archery course, teachers undergo
an 8-hour National Archery in the Schools Program® Basic Archery Instructor Training Program.
Students shoot at 80 cm bulls-eye targets placed before an arrow curtain in their gymnasium. Equipment used is state-of-the art and designed to fit every student. Thanks to support from
the archery industry, the $6,000 equipment 'kits' can be purchased by schools for $3,100 to $3,500 dependant upon which targets and bow hanging units are chosen.
The National Archery in the Schools Program® (NASP®) brings the sport of archery to millions of students in schools across the United States & various other countries. (see the contacts section of this site to learn more!)
