SPOKANE, Mo. – Teachers interested in becoming archery instructors at their schools or teachers interested in taking their school’s archery program to the next level will have an opportunity to receive free training from the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) in Spokane.

On April 5, MDC staff will hold a Missouri National Archery in the Schools Program (MoNASP) basic archery instructor training class at Spokane Middle School, 1130 Spokane Road in Christian County. This free one-day event will be from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and is meant for teachers interested in incorporating MoNASP instruction into their school’s curriculum. Individuals can register for this class at https://naspbai.org/ClassView.aspx?cid=8628

Basic archery instructor training is required for schools to participate in 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. People can get more information about upcoming MoNASP events in southwest Missouri by e-mailing MDC Outdoor Skills Specialist Greg Collier at Greg.Collier@mdc.mo.gov or MDC Outdoor Skills Specialist Andy Rhodes at Andrew.Rhodes@mdc.mo.gov. MoNASP information can also be found only at mdc.mo.gov/monasp.
