PERRY, Ga. -( With dreams of bullseyes in their heads, more than 1,000 students from the state’s top school archery teams will compete March 3 in the annual National Archery in the Schools Georgia state tournament.

These top archers, coming from elementary, middle and high schools will convene in Perry at the Georgia National Fairgrounds for the national-qualifying tournament.

The state tournament is coordinated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division and is open to all qualifying Georgia schools enrolled in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP).

Earlier this year, more than 1,400 archers in grades 4-12 competed in nine regional tournaments to qualify for entry into this state competition.

Regional champion teams in the elementary, middle and high school divisions automatically qualified for state, while 18 wildcard teams also received an invite based on regional scores.

State tournament division winners and individual qualifiers will have the opportunity to compete at the NASP National Tournament May 11-13 in Louisville, KY.

The state tournament is conducted at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter’s Multipurpose Exhibit Building. Admission is free for observers.

The Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter is off I-75. Driving directions can be found online.

About NASP:

NASP is an in-school archery curriculum that meets all education department standards. Only schools that are certified in NASP through the Georgia Department of Natural Resources are qualified to compete in the Georgia Tournament. Schools in more than 100 counties in Georgia are NASP certified.

The program promotes instruction in international-style target archery to improve educational performance and participation in shooting sports. Research has shown that the program, administered through a minimum two-week course during the school year, improves class attendance and behavior. NASP universal-fit bows make it possible for students of all sizes and genders to succeed in archery while raising self-esteem levels and improving hand-eye coordination during physical activity.

NASP is taught in 47 states as well as 10 countries. To date, more than 14 million students have gone through the program.
