Archery in the Schools Program (OKNASP)

New Information for 2018

 


Schools across the country are discovering an exciting new program that hits the bullseye in meeting the physical education needs of their students. Through the Oklahoma National Archery in the Schools (OKNASP) Program, students have the chance to excel today, tomorrow and throughout a lifetime in the unique sport of archery. The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP), of which OKNASP is a part, is a coordinated effort and partnership between schools, state wildlife agencies and the nation’s archery industry.

In Oklahoma, OKNASP promotes physical education by providing target archery training to the state’s youth.

Designed for 4th-12th graders, the curriculum covers archery history, safety, techniques, equipment, mental concentration and self-improvement.

How can your school join the program? Teachers attend an eight-hour National Archery Association training class taught by certified Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation instructors. They return to their schools fully prepared to teach the two-week archery course to their students.

What is required of teachers? Teachers must simply attend a free one-day workshop conducted by OKNASP certified instructors.  Topics covered will include range set up, running a safe archery range, building student skills, equipment maintenance and more.  If you are interested in attending a workshop, please contact the OKNASP coordinator.  Once a teacher has completed the training course, their school is eligible to purchase an equipment kit.
