NASP Basic Archery Instructor Training (BAI):National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) instructor training is offered through the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. The NASP course content is designed to teach archery instruction techniques to both archery novices as well as experienced archers. Course content includes range set up and safety, use of the string bow, eleven steps to archery success, coaching techniques, equipment nomenclature, inspection, operation, maintenance and repair.
Because NASP archery classes are conducted in school gymnasiums, teachers may volunteer their school to host a NASP archery instructor training course. Many of these courses are conducted during district in-service sessions.
