“Three Countries Compete at the 2019 NASP® All-Star Championship in Music City”

 The finest archers among countries participating in the National Archery in the Schools Program were invited to compete at the 2019 National Archery in the School’s Program All-Star Championship at Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee.  The All-Star event was one of six events that took place July 26th-27 at the NASP® Open Championship. All eleven countries that participate in NASP@ to include: USA, United Kingdom, Canada, British Virgin Isles, Australia, New Zealand, Mongolia, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Zimbabwe were invited to the All-Star event on July 26th.  Canada and the USA were present in Nashville and shot both Bullseye and 3D formats. Namibia, while still in Africa, competed ,and submitted their results electronically.

The All-Star event was at full spectator capacity as the best shooters from these countries “gathered” to showcase their archery talents. Just like at the National Tournament that advanced them to this championship, each archer used Genesis Bows and Easton Aluminum Arrows, designed specifically for NASP® to compete. Bows are free from sights, stabilizers, and other aides to keep the playing field identical and affordable to every archer, just like the NASP® archery class they take at school. Archers shot the same format they shoot at every NASP® tournament, with five practice arrows at both ten and fifteen-meter shooting lines, followed by fifteen scored arrows at those distances. Archers have two minutes to shoot their “end” of five arrows and the highest possible score for an archer is 300, both for Bulls-eye and the NASP®/IBO 3D Challenge. The scores from bullseye and 3D were summed to produce final results and rank. The overall male and female scores and team scores for the USA, Canada, and Namibia are as follows:

Overall Male—USA & the All-Star Championship
Drew Crump, an 8th grader from St. Johns and St. Athanasius Schools, Iowa. Score-592/600

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.
