Educators in Olpe, Hartford, Reading and surroundings areas invited to participate

PRATT – Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism staff and National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) training instructors will host a NASP Basic Archery Instructor's Workshop at the Olpe High School gym, October 27 at 8:30 a.m. Instructors from Olpe, Hartford, Reading, and surrounding areas are invited to participate in the one-day event to become trained and certified as NASP Archery Instructors.

Kansas entered NASP in 2006 and has since introduced the program to students in grades 4-12 at nearly 220 schools around the state. NASP allows students who might not otherwise engage in traditional sports to participate in an activity that can serve as a life-long pursuit. Apart from participating in school programs, student archers can also compete in state and national tournaments held each year, winning medals, and top scoring archers winning prizes ranging from brand new bows to academic scholarships.

For more information on this event, or to introduce NASP at your school, contact Mike Rader at (620) 672-5911.
