The Missouri National Archery in the Schools Program (MoNASP) helps build stronger, more confident, and accomplished kids. It's modeled on the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP), which began with a simple idea — teach kids the basics of archery as a part of the school curriculum. Since NASP's beginnings in 2002, millions of kids across the nation have participated in the program.
Why MoNASP Works
Nearly everyone — regardless of age, size, or physical ability — can succeed at archery. Kids love archery, and archery helps kids excel.
Statistics show that school archery programs:
- Improve school attendance
- Increase self-esteem
- Increase physical activity
- Relate to subject matter
- Appeal to all students
- Get kids outdoors
- Can become an after-school activity
Missouri National Archery in the Schools Program supports international-style target archery in physical education classes during the school day for grades 4 through 12.
