The past four years the NASP World Tournament has been held in Orlando Florida at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Walt Disney World. The NASP World Tournament has enjoyed great participation by archers from 25 States, Canada, Africa and New Zealand. We thank our previous hosts and appreciate their dedication and hard work assisting with the production and operation of our first four World Tournaments.
However, NASP has decided, for many logistical reasons, that it is time to relocate the World Tournament. After conducting a survey seeking the input and guidance of our Coaches and Teachers, NASP has decided the location for the 2013 NASP World Championship will be St. Louis Missouri. This location is more geographically centralized in the Country. It remains equally accessible for all our attendees from other Countries. Provides plenty of off-site attractions and is more financially friendly to all attendees. The new location also allows for a scheduling adjustment that we have been told will be more conducive to the school year and logistically better for coaches, teams and schools.
The location for the 5th NASP World Tournament, Now the 2013 NASP World Championship, is the America Center and Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis Missouri. The date for the 2013 World Championship will be June 28 – 30, 2013. The Competition range will be in the Edward Jones Dome, home of the St. Louis Rams. We will have other halls available as well for practice ranges, exhibitors and other activities. There will be several exhibitors set up throughout this event. We expect approximately 2000 archers to participate in the 2013 NASP World Championship.
In addition to the location change there will also be a qualification change to the 2013 NASP National Rules. This change will establish a minimum score for qualification. Teams and individuals will need to achieve these required minimum scores to participate in the 2013 NASP World Championship. Details and information regarding qualification will be released at a later date.
