SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation will hold a Missouri National Archery in the Schools Program (MoNASP) basic archery instructor training class in Springfield in September.

The class will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, September 17 at the O’Reilly-Tefft Gym (1408 E. Pythian St., Springfield).

To register or to get more information about this event or to get information about upcoming MoNASP basic archery instruction classes elsewhere in the state, contact Greg Collier at 417-895-6881, ext. 268 or at Information about the MoNASP and NASP programs can also be found at or

These free training classes are meant for teachers who are interested in incorporating MoNASP instruction into their school’s curriculum. Teachers must attend the training to receive instructor certification. Basic archery instructor training is required for schools to participate in the MoNASP and to qualify for related grant money. MoNASP programs must be a part of a school’s curriculum for at least two weeks to qualify that school for regional, state, national and international NASP competitions.

MoNASP is the Missouri branch of NASP, a national program that uses archery to boost students’ physical dexterity and self-confidence. Participants also learn an activity they can enjoy for the rest of their lives in the form of recreational target shooting or bow hunting.
