NASP Grant Request


Grant support from the Department of Fish and Wildlife is available to schools adding NASP archery to their curriculum as part of the regular school day, taught by BAI certified instructor, using NASP standard equipment.

We provide in-kind grant of equipment which we purchase for your school, and accommodates approximately half of your needs. Typically, we buy the bows and arrow curtain. We expect that the school will raise funds to cover purchase of the other half of the equipment - arrows, targets, bow rack.  floor quivers and maintenance kit

In the NASP Grant Request, we’ll collect some School information which helps to scope the amount of equipment recommended to support the school population and typical class size

We’ll need the following info:

            School Name, Contact Name, Email Address and Phone Number

            Estimated number of 1st year staff requiring archery instructor training
            (or note that the school already has a certified instructor)
