USA – -( US and International response from educators and coaches to NASP’s new Academic Archer program explodes to over 1000 students entered into the program!

Educators from over 25 US states and Canadian Provinces have implemented the NASP Academic Archer Program with their students.

Since its inception in 2002, NASP has always aimed to become a motivating force and provide safe access to the shooting sports for students in grades 4-12.

“We are so excited about the obvious popularity of Academic Archer in such a short period of time…Teachers and Coaches obviously want to use AA to motivate and recognize their high achieving students, and motivate others that need a little push,” said NASP® President Roy Grimes.

Dr. Tommy Floyd – NASP Vice President and General Manager said, “It’s a great example of how NASP continues to grow, and support educators and coaches with a program to engage students in their primary goal – higher academic achievement in the classroom! The educators and coaches that have already enrolled their students in the program, realize that with AA, NASP is even more closely aligned to increasing success for students through motivation and recognition of excellence in the classroom! Imagine the excitement at NASP nationals when these archers are recognized for their academic proficiency!”

As recommended by the NASP Student and Educator Advisory Council back in November of 2015, Academic Archer was recently launched on the NASP website and designed to provide a platform for local schools to use in-school archery as a motivator for classroom achievement.

“Imagine the excitement at NASP nationals when these archers are recognized for their academic prowess!”
