Local Tournaments are Prolific! Insider Volume 1
In June 2002, four months after the launch of the National Archery in the
Schools Program in twenty-one schools, NASP® held its first archery
tournament. That event attracted 40 student archers to the Mercer County, KY Fish & Wildlife Club for an outdoor event. The archers shot from 10 and 20 yards.
Fast forward to 2019 and by the middle of this May more than 330,000
Xổ số hóa ra là thừa Tian ShunNASP® archers will have shot in a minimum of 1,099 local, regional, state, and national NASP® tournaments. The average number of shooter participants at these contests is just a bit over 300 kids! This average is greater than most of the largest tournaments hosted by some archery organizations. These are conservative numbers because they include the tournaments NASP® knows about because they used our tournament software, http://nasptournaments.org
Many of these tournaments are organized by teachers, parents, and
coaches representing some of the 14,000 NASP® schools. They are conducted to provide the students with more fun, competitive practice, and to raise travel funds to support tournament teams. Some schools have raised as much as $30,000 in a spring season to cover travel expenses to state, regional, and national tournaments. It is the goal of some travel team leaders that student archer expenses are held at ZERO!
The average score, out of a possible 300, at local tournaments has
remained at about 220 for female and 225 for male archers. As the tournaments become more difficult to qualify for the scores rise. For instance, the average score at NASP® Nationals is 251 for female and 252 for male archers.
