We WANT to help your school buy the equipment you need to incorporate archery into your physical education curriculum! Please consider sending a grant application our way in the next few weeks. Application information is below.
Equipment Grants Due By December 1, 2011!
For Schools with BAI-Certified Instructors ONLY
Are you BAI trained but don't have the equipment you need to teach National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®) -style archery in your school? Are you willing to work with your community, local archery clubs and/or school to raise part of the funds?
Each year, the Easton Foundation makes it possible for every state and Canadian province to award up to $1000 to 6 local schools towards the purchase of a FULL NASP® school set (about $3000 total.)
As an added bonus, the Colorado Archery in the Schools Program has funding to augment the national program. If you are excited to teach archery and are willing to raise part of the funding for the equipment, we want to work with you.
NASP® Student Survey
What do the participating students think?
NASP®, the Easton Sports Development Foundation, and the University of Florida have teamed to learn more about student attitudes regarding their archery experience. The link below is designed for students to access at home with parent or guardian approval. Almost all of what we know about the effectiveness of NASP® has been obtained from surveys conducted among teachers and their students.
