Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) - National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP)
Matching grants to Minnesota schools and nonprofit organizations for training, equipment, and supplies for student archery programs. Funding is intended to increase youth access to high-quality equipment and training as they participate in innovative school and after-school archery programs.
As part of a national effort, Archery in the Schools is a collaborative undertaking between the state Department of Natural Resources and local schools to establish two-week archery units in Minnesota schools.
The Olympic-style target archery program has a core content that covers archery history, safety, technique, equipment, mental concentration, and self improvement. Before teaching the course, instructors must undergo the National Archery Association Level 1 archery training program and be certified instructors.
Schools use either existing archery equipment or purchase new archery equipment packages at a discounted price. Financial assistance for equipment packages may be available from the DNR or other organizations.
For a detailed list of the equipment available and storage requirements please see: https://files.dnr.state.mn.us/fish_wildlife/outreach/nasp/application_process.pdf#page=2
