The National Archery in the Schools Program continues to bring safe in-school archery to 1.3 million students each year in 49 U.S. states. Since inception in 2002, NASP® has involved of over 21 million students and over 104,000 adult instructors! The culminating event for thousands of these students is participation in a local, regional, state, or national tournament event, and NASP® is tremendously excited about the upcoming national tournament series planned for the spring of 2024.

The 2024 national tournament series will begin with the Western National Tournament to be held at the Mountain America Center in Sandy, Utah on April 26-27; followed by the Eastern National Tournament to be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky on May 9-11. The series of national-level competitions will culminate with the NASP®

Championship Tournament to be held at the Daytona Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida on June 6-8, 2024. Each tournament will include bullseye as well as the IBO 3-D Challenge competition.
Top teams and individuals will again be selected from the combined results of both Western and Eastern National Tournaments to have the opportunity to register for the Championship event. Top male and female individual winners from the combined results of both national tournaments will again compete for the NASP® Scholarship Shoot-Off to be held at the end of the June Championship Tournament.


In addition to the traditional individual and team scholarships that are awarded at the national events, NASP® is delighted to continue awarding up to 120 additional $500 bullseye scholarships to be awarded randomly to tournament participants. Simply competing will be “the” requirement for possibly being selected for a $500 award. Upon graduation, archers can apply these funds to any post-secondary educational or training program of their choice.


NASP® President Tommy Floyd said, “NASP® had a fantastic year in 2023. More student archers are now using our tournament system than ever before. These large national events are the culminating events for thousands of student archers who have been practicing and competing since the fall. It is wonderful to see them enter the tournament halls with families and supporters to take part in our national events. Thanks to our generous sponsors, we will again be awarding a huge number of randomly selected scholarships at Western, Eastern and at the Championship Tournaments. At the end of the season, there will be up to 120 students who will receive post-secondary financial support just for showing up to compete! Our NASP® sponsors are incredible and have made this type of opportunity possible for our participating NASP® archers!”
