48 states, 15,000 schools, 20 million student participants to date… If your mission is like ours, to advance archery by growing participation, then supporting organizations like the National Archery in the Schools Program is simply responsible. Our industry relies on those who inspire others to care about preserving wildlife and equip those people to stay involved in lifelong sports such as archery, fishing, and hunting. NASP® is one of those organizations, and undoubtedly one of the single largest.
Here at Morrell Targets, we are active in archery development. We’ve seen from the beginning of NASP, the impact it would have on kids through archery. By NASP Introducing kids to archery, a much broader mindset in archery has developed. NASP kids make better students, and it opens the doors to future archers, sportsmen, and ladies.

The NASP® program has consistently demonstrated an ability to positively impact the lives of millions of kids and young adults. Archery is a fun and inclusive way to teach the value of preparation, practice, and focus. These lessons go far beyond the archery range and extend into the classroom and community. We at Easton are proud to support the NASP staff and countless volunteers who make all this happen.

Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) believes in the importance of providing shooting sports opportunities to youth and has supported the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) for over a decade. “SCIF’s American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) has trained close to 2,000 educators in NASP, said Dan Brooks, Director of Education, “and follow-up surveys from our participants show they value the NASP instruction as one of the top two components of our conservation education program.” This is a testament to the strength of the NASP curriculum and its impact on youth shooting sports.

NASP makes archery accessible to youth all over US and other countries who may not have an opportunity to be exposed otherwise. Not only are they helping grow our industry by creating an early love for the sport, but NASP celebrates students scholastic achievements and positive behavior. NASP is an amazing organization which promotes positivity, self-confidence and community.
Gordon Composites – Avient strongly support NASP.
When Roy Grimes and his team at NASP reached out to Lancaster Archery during the summer of 2013 we knew it was an opportunity to serve the NASP community that we needed to support. The mission to grow the sport of archery while improving student’s educational performance resonated with us. It quickly became evident that we shared the same passion and drive as we began to work with Michelle and the dedicated folks at NASP. It’s been an honor to be associated and support such a positive and influential organization.

American Whitetail is committed to the future of archery, and our youth is that future. Having been an avid archer, as well as involved in the archery industry for over 40 years, I know that the best program to promote and introduce our great sport to youngsters is the National Archery In The School Program. Kids learn the value of hard work to achieve a goal, while acquiring a life long skill. We support NASP in every way we can, because NASP gives kids a future, as well as the sport of archery.

As hunters, harvesters, outdoorsmen and women, we at SITKA Gear recognize the value of a life lived in connection with the ecosystem.
