The NASP program is rapidly growing and gaining popularity among both students and educators. It was introduced into 17 Ohio schools in 2004. More than 400 Ohio schools now have teachers certified to instruct target archery.
The first NASP program was launched in Kentucky in 2002. Since that date 48 U.S. states, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and Australia have adopted it.
NASP teaches target archery to elementary, middle and high school students, right in the school gym. The curriculum covers archery, safety, equipment, technique, concentration skills and self-improvement.
When students are introduced to the sport of archery, the in-school educational component is only the beginning. Many NASP-participating schools then start after-school programs and archery teams.
