Open September 1st – April 1st
NASP® cares about learning in the classroom!
The Academic Archer program was established to recognize student success in the classroom as well as on the archery range. We know that once introduced, students love shooting NASP®. Educators can use this love of archery to promote and recognize better outcomes in the classroom. Many times, students who are on the “bubble” of performing better academically find archery as the reason to give the extra effort needed to succeed academically.
No tournament participation required.
Participating schools can utilize the downloadable Academic Archer certificates to recognize their student-archers during their annual academic awards ceremonies.
How did AA get started? In November of 2015, National NASP® leadership and a group of NASP® educators and students met to discuss ways to further enhance the almost 20 year old program. One recommendation was to establish a uniform incentive and recognition format to recognize and promote academic achievement among participating NASP® students.
ATTN: NASP® COACHES – an indicator has been added to your archer list page to denote Academic Archers for this season. This indicator will display the AA image next to any archer who has been designated as an Academic Archer for the current school year. This will make it easier for you to identify your AA Archers. This indicator can be changed by editing the archer and checking the box for Academic Archer.
