Portion of the Proceeds to support NASP
West Columbia, SC – -(AmmoLand.com)- EOTAC, a subsidiary of Freedom Group, Inc and a company that designs and manufactures high quality tactical, outdoor and shooting sports clothing has been selected to supply team jerseys for the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). In order to further support this dynamic youth sports program, EOTAC has committed to provide a portion of the proceeds back to NASP.
The National Archery in Schools Program annually impacts more than one million fourth – twelfth grade students through an in school archery curriculum. It further compliments youth with a competitive program that culminates with a national tournament in Louisville, KY and a world tournament to be held in October at Disney’s Wide World of Sports®. The most recent NASP National Tournament featured 4,565 student archers, the largest gathering of competitive archers in recorded history.
NASP® is an organization that works with 46 state agencies to implement an archery training curriculum in over 5,000 schools in the U.S. and has expanded to Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. Importantly, research shows that over 30% of NASP® participants express a desire for deeper participation in shooting sports.
“We are honored to supply high quality uniforms for NASP® participants and coaches as we believe that they are the most dynamic youth participation program focused on outdoor sports, said Fernando Coelho, EOTAC President. “We understand that NASP® emphasizes overall life development of these young people and feel that sharp, high quality uniforms can contribute to that goal”, continued Coelho.
“We are pleased to have a well organized, high quality uniform program for NASP® participants”, said Roy Grimes, NASP® President. “We believe this will give our archers every opportunity to have the same look and feel other high end school athletic teams”.
The joint program was coordinated by the Remington Outdoor Foundation to insure that both organizations maximize objectives. The Remington Outdoor Foundation will also be coordinating other programs to further support NASP®.
