MORE ABOUT NASP
The National Archery in the Schools Program is an in-school archery curriculum that meets all education department standards. Only schools that are certified in NASP through the Georgia DNR are qualified to compete in the Georgia tournament. Schools in more than 100 counties in Georgia are NASP-certified.
The program promotes instruction in international-style target archery to improve educational performance and participation in shooting sports. Research has shown that the program, administered through a minimum two-week course during the school year, improves class attendance and behavior. NASP universal-fit bows make it possible for students of all sizes and genders to succeed in archery while raising self-esteem levels and improving hand-eye coordination during physical activity.
NASP is taught in 47 states and 10 countries. To date, more than 12 million students have gone through the program.
