Scholastic state archery tourney in Kokomo, March 7
Indiana’s second annual National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) state tournament is March 7, at Johanning Civic Center in Kokomo.
More than 180 students representing eight schools participated in the inaugural tournament last year. This year’s tournament has 23 schools represented and nearly 500 students participating in this unique program.
Doors open at 7 a.m. Flight times are 8 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., with a shoot-off to follow the third flight. An award ceremony is scheduled at the end of the competition. Admission is free.
The tournament would not be possible without the generosity of many groups, organizations and businesses. The Indiana Field Archery Association will be providing its expertise in running the tournament along with many volunteers and Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officers. The Indiana Hunter Education Association is the underwriting sponsor for the tournament.
Supported as a joint venture between school corporations throughout Indiana and the DNR, NASP provides international target archery training in Indiana’s physical educational classes, grades 4-12. NASP supports student education and introduces many life skills through the lifelong sport of archery.
“It is our hope that this will lead to many new indoor and outdoor activities,” Indiana NASP coordinator Tim Beck said.
Tournament competition is open only to schools that have received the archery training provided by the DNR Law Enforcement Division.
The program is supported and often funded through local school corporations, the Indiana Hunter Education Association, individual donations, conservation organizations and corporate sponsors such as the National Wild Turkey Federation.
