WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT:  The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is an international-style target archery program for students in grades 4-12.  It is taught during the regular school hours, often by the physical education teacher.  NASP is now taught in 46 states and five countries.  Over 4.6 million students have participated in the program since its beginning in 2002.  NASP allows students to experience success in school and has the ability to improve self-esteem, behavior, grades and attendance.



The Missouri Department of Conservation began coordinating NASP in Missouri in 2007.  The number of schools participating in MoNASP has doubled each year, growing from 20 to 49 in 2008 and from 49 to 100 in 2009.  Currently 101 Missouri schools and more than 16,000 students participate in the program. The first MoNASP State tournament took place last year at Linn State Technical College with 17 schools and 274 students participating.  This year’s tournament again will be held at the Activity Center at Linn State Technical College in Linn, MO on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010.  Almost 700 student archers are expected to participate.



CONTACT PERSON: Interviews and site visits should be coordinated through Kevin Lohraff, MDC Outdoor Skills Education Coordinator and Missouri NASP Coordinator, 573-522-4115, ext.3294
