Here is an article that has come out recently about homeschoolers and NASP. We will check to see if there are any updates before we start a team. New Archery Rules: Harder for Homeschoolers to Compete
Clicking on this link: National Archery in the Schools Program will take you to the website for the archery organization that the team will be pariticipating with. Here is some general information about the season.
NASP curriculum is designed for students in 4th-12th grades to be used in a Physical Education program.
Start of the Season: August of the upcoming school year
Competiton Dates: There are several competitions available from November to March
Students: 12-24 archers with at least 4 of the opposite gender (not sure if this is the same for home schoolers)
Instructor: Needs to be trained with NASP Basic Archery Instructor trainings
Cost: The kit has already been purchased, so the cost will help pay for the competitions. It will have to be set by the instructor.
Credit: This class can count as your PE class for the school year, as long as you have enough hours. This could also just supplement the PE class you are already taking.
Components: The Archery Curriculum is taught as a part of the school curriculum. Teachers must be trained as Basic Archery Instructors or Basic Archery Instructor Trainers. Students learn focus, self-control, discipline, patience, and life lessons.
CHOICE has had one team in the past. If you are interested in starting another team, let us know!
Photos coming soon!
