Program

ALAS is a part of the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) that is designed to introduce students in grades 4-12 to international target style archery. As the name states, the program is designed to be taught as part of the in-school curriculum. Most commonly the program is integrated into the schools PE program and is taught within the schools gymnasium.  Once exposed to the program many schools develop after school programs and archery clubs. Students at schools that teach the ALAS curriculum are then eligible to compete in State, National, and even World tournaments.

The sport of archery is a great way to get students involved in not only a life long sport, but also in their school, and into the outdoors. ALAS is program that looks to inspire confidence through the focus and discipline that sport of archery requires and the results speak for themselves. Nationwide over 16 million students have participated in the National Archery in the Schools program in its first 15 years. Just last year over 2.4 million students participated in NASP, more than participated in Little Leauge!
