South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) announced two upcoming trainings for the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). 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.
Trainings are scheduled for Monday, Sept. 26, in Oacoma and Tuesday, Oct. 11, in Rapid City. The day-long trainings run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Upon successful completion of the training, new schools to the program will be eligible to receive free archery equipment provided by GFP, and all participants will be able to enter their students in the 2017 NASP state tournament.
Teachers wishing to introduce archery into their schools must pre-register for training by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling at 605.220.2130. Space is limited.
