Missouri National Archery in the Schools Program builds character in students

For the second year in a row, the Missouri National Archery in the Schools Program (MoNASP) state tournament exceeded expectations.

Held in Branson and hosted by the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation (MCHF), the tournament drew a crowd of over 10,000 people with approximately 4,500 student competitors. The excitement in the convention center, pouring out of the thousands of young shooters, was electric.

One of the main aspects of the program that makes it so special is that it is open to all kids, regardless of gender, size, physical ability or athleticism. You don’t have to be tall to shoot archery. This isn’t basketball. You don’t have to be fast or strong. It’s not football. Any kid from the biggest in school to the smallest, children in wheelchairs, children with learning disabilities – it doesn’t matter, just about any child can participate in archery.
