PIERRE, SD (KELO AM) - The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks is pleased to announce upcoming training opportunities through the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP).
The NASP program provides the opportunity for schools in South Dakota to safely incorporate archery in their school curriculum at no cost to the local school district. Home school parents are also encouraged to bring their children to attend this training at no charge.
Trainings are currently scheduled for Rapid City on Sept. 30 and Oacoma on Oct. 2. Each day-long training session will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 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. All participating schools will have the option of entering their students in the 2014 NASP state tournament.
Teachers wishing to introduce archery into their schools must pre-register for training by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 605.220.2130. Space is limited, so registrations should be made as soon as possible.
