3 Competition

NASP Competition

         The National Archery in the Schools Program offers students the opportunity to represent their school in State and National Competition. Washington State conducts an annual NASP Washington State Championship at a centrally-located site. To facilitate participation by schools / archers, the event is also offered at two or more "satellite sites" on the weekend before the Main Event. Students shoot a single round of 30 arrows at an assigned time during a one- or two-day period. Since 2017 the tournament has also included an optional additional event - the NASP 3D Challenge. That event is also being offered both at the central location and the satellite sites.
        Students shoot for individual awards for both boys and girls as well as for school team trophies. Competition categories are Elementary School, Middle School, and High School. High scoring teams and individuals receive trophies and awards, and also will qualify to participate in either the Western National Championship held during April in Utah or the Eastern National during May in Louisville Kentucky. The School Team Competition for the Bullseye event will combine the individual scores of each school’s top four male, top four female, and next four overall - sum of those 12 scores is the team score.  For the 3D Challenge teams consist of a minimum of six archers and team score is the sum of the scores shot by the top 2 male, top two female, and next two overall for total of six archers' scores.

      

        Students eligible to compete must have participated in the National Archery in the Schools Program at their local school. Archers use standardized bows and arrows to shoot

For the Bullseye event the circular targets are set at distances of 10 meters and 15 meters. Each archer shoots 15 arrows at each distance - 30 arrows in all - with value of 10 points for a center hit descending to 1 point for a rim shot. Maximum score is 300 points for the round. 

For the 3D Challenge the animal replica targets are set at varying distances between 10 meters and 15 meters. Each archer shoots five arrows at each of the six different animals, for a total of 30 arrows. Scoring areas are valued at 10, 9, 8, or 7 points for a total of 300 points maximum for the round.

        Our Washington State Championship has displayed a rapidly increasing number of attendees, with over 1100 archers shooting during the 2019 event .
