CASP trains educators across Colorado to incorporate international-style target archery into the physical education curriculum. CASP promotes student interest and skills development leading to a life-long love of the shooting sport. The virtual tournament gives every student who participates in the NASP curriculum during physical education class the chance to demonstrate their skills and compete with other archers around the state from their own gymnasium.
Schools can participate in the tournament by holding a formal competition on their school grounds within the open dates using the 2015 CO NASP Tournament Rules and Format guide.
Team registration at www.nasptournaments.org ends Feb. 20. The registration fee of $2.50 per scored student is payable online during registration through the NASP website. State NASP Tournament teams must be comprised of students who are separated by grade divisions as follows: Elementary (4-5), Middle (6-8) and High School (9-12). Schools may enter several teams per division.
After a school holds the competition, coaches gather student’s scorecards and submit the tournament scores online into the NASP Tournament database where they are tallied electronically.
Top scoring teams will be selected by division with trophies and medals awarded to the schools and team members. Individual boy and girl champions in each division will be awarded a state champion bow. In addition, qualifying teams are invited to participate in the 2015 NASP National Tournament, May 7-9, in Louisville, Kentucky.
CASP looks forward to the participation of students from across Colorado in this exciting inaugural event as they represent their school in the state tournament.
