The State Game and Fish Department invites all North Dakota schools participating in theNational Archery in the Schools Program to register for the annual state tournament. The 2014 tournament is April 11-12 at the VFW Sports Center in Bismarck.

 

Schools can enter teams and individuals in the following grade level divisions: elementary (4-5), middle (6-8), and high school (9-12). Teams must have 12-24 members, with a minimum of four from each gender. If smaller schools wish to form a team, archers may participate up one grade division for team competition, but they would compete individually in their appropriate age category.

 

Small schools of 100 students or fewer (all grades combined) may also assemble teams from NASP schools in the same town, county or district. Schools that cannot form a team may register students for individual competition.

 

NASP state coordinator Jeff Long said only schools offering NASP lessons during school hours as part of their standard curriculum are eligible to participate in the state tournament. Schools that don’t meet this requirement are encouraged to contact Long to get the program started.

 

Recognition will be given to the top placing team in each division, the top five males and females in each division, and the top scoring male and female regardless of division. Top scoring individuals are given early registration and receive priority in flights for the national tournament, held May 9-10 in Louisville, Ky.

 

For more information regarding the tournament, schools should contact Long by email atjrlong@nd.gov, or call 701-328-6322. To learn more, visit the Game and Fish website at gf.nd.gov.
