The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish & Parks will host teacher training next month at Watertown for the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP).
NASP allows schools in South Dakota to safely incorporate archery into their school curriculum and at no cost to the local school district. Home school parents are also encouraged to attend the training at no charge.
The one-day training is scheduled for Wednesday, May 29, at the Watertown Middle School gymnasium. The session begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. CDT.
Upon successful completion of the training, new schools to the program will be eligible to receive free archery equipment from GFP. All participating teachers will be able to enter their students in the 2014 NASP state tournament.
Teachers wishing to introduce archery into their schools must pre-register for training by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 605-220-2130. Space is limited so registrations should be made as soon as possible.
