National Archery in the Schools Program on Capitol Hill
The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) was featured as the theme of the Congressional Sportsman's Foundation breakfast for the Members of Congress and their staff on October 3, 2007 at the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. Ten students from Hidden Valley High School in Roanoke, Virginia, demonstrated their shooting skills and the Eleven Steps to Archery Success with NASP equipment.
This video highlights some of the demonstration, and shows the students working with Congressional Members as they shoot the Genesis bows. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries conducts NASP training for school teachers who are interested in offering archery as part of their curriculum. Virginia currently has over 100 schools that are offering the National Archery in the Schools Program.
