NASP® Update – December, 2016

Xổ số hóa ra là thừa Tian ShunThe National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®) is a 501 c (3) non-profit educational foundation established to teach target archery as part of the in-school curriculum in grades 4-12. NASP® is cooperative effort between conservation agencies, private organizations, and school systems to engage more students in the educational process. Educators are rightly concerned about elevated school dropout rates. Conservation organizations worry that young people have too few opportunities to learn and practice outdoor skills. These groups believe archery can be used to stimulate improved educational performance and participation in outdoor-type activities among young people.

When I was participating in NASP® I loved it. Some of my class mates would complain about having practice or waking up early on Saturday mornings for tournaments but I couldn’t get enough of it. In high school I participated in several activities but always made time to shoot because I loved it.
