What is NASP?

Ohio’s National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is a school curriculum taught during physical education classes for a two-week period. The program is designed to teach International target archery skills to elementary, middle, and high school students. The program curriculum is already written and meets or exceeds national physical education standards. The core content covers archery safety, equipment, technique, mental concentration, and self-improvement. The program positively influences student attendance, behavior, self-esteem, confidence, and on task behavior. NASP transcends gender, racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds and provides an equal learning opportunity to all students by utilizing standardized equipment, training, and implementation.

Students become a part of something, they feel good about themselves; have improved self-esteem; and improved confidence. For many students that results in increased participation in their school. For many that means increased attendance, improved grades, and a decrease in disciplinary issues.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
