The North Dakota Game and Fish Department and North Dakota Bowhunters Association are sponsoring a National Archery in the Schools Program workshop in Bismarck for educators interested in teaching archery to students in grades 4-12.
The NASP workshop is scheduled Oct. 17-18 at the NISHU Archery Complex, 1409 Riverwood Drive. Participants will complete the workshop with basic or improved archery skills, and will possess the fundamentals to teach students.
NASP teaches international style archery, and can be taught indoors or outdoors. NASP has spread into 47 states, and schools involved in the program have documented an increase in attendance, heightened self-esteem and improved academic performance.
Game and Fish workshop instructors are education coordinator Jeff Long and curriculum specialist Sherry Niesar. To register, contact Long mail by email or call (701) 328-6322. A $10 registration fee covers supplies and refreshments.
