What is NASP
The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is an in-school program aimed at improving educational performance among students in grades 4th – 12th. Through it, students are learning focus, self-control, discipline, patience, and the life lessons required to be successful in the classroom and in life. For more information about NASP, please visit http://nasp.washingtonarchery.org/home.
Units of Study were written by Education, Conservation, and Target archery experts to meet state and national educational standards. This enabled NASP® to speak the language of educators who are intent on teaching core content throughout the school day. These units were designed for inclusion in a school’s Physical Education curriculum but in a few NASP® schools these archery lessons are presented by history, language, art, and even Spanish teachers.
Instructor Training was developed so teachers in every participating school could be certified to present NASP® lessons that are safe for students, instructors, bystanders, and the facility.
Archery Equipment used in NASP® is highly standardized to be safe, durable, economical, and most importantly, universal fit for almost every student. In NASP® learning the “process” of shooting is stressed far more than arrow scores.
