NASP: Teach Archery to your Students in Grades 4-12

The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is an international-style archery program taught by teachers and delivered to students in physical education classes in grades 4-12.

In most states, the national program is adopted and administered by state wildlife agencies. In California, the program (CalNASP) is administered by CDFW in consult with the Department of Education (DOE).

Teachers are trained by the CDFW-archery instructors to become NASP certified. Classes run from 8-10 hours and are hands-on.

After-school program instructors and other bona-fide youth organizations are invited to participate in NASP training classes, but are not eligible to compete in school-based tournaments.

If you are interested in implementing CalNASP at your school, you may download the CalNASP flyer (PDF) to present the program to school administrators.

Check the training calendar for upcoming classes.
