GFP Offers Free Archery Training to Educators

Last Updated by Laura Dimock on

The NASP program allows schools in South Dakota to incorporate archery in their school curriculum safely and at no cost to the local school district. Home school parents are also encouraged to attend the training at no cost.

NASP training is currently scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 2, at the Outdoor Adventure Center in Brookings. The day-long training will begin at 9 a.m. and end by 5 p.m. Upon successful completion of the training, schools new to the program will be eligible to receive free archery equipment provided by GFP. All participants will be able to enter their students in the 2018 NASP state tournament.

Teachers wishing to introduce archery into their schools must pre-register for training by email at outdoorprogramming@gmail.com or by phone at 605.220.2130. Space is limited so registrations should be made as soon as possible.
