Iowa Afterschool League Program:
Schools across the country are discovering an exciting new program that hits the bullseye in meeting the physical education needs of their students. Through the Iowa National Archery in the schools program, students are excelling in a lifetime unique sport of archery. Once schools complete the two week in-school target archery class, they have the opportunity to compete in our face to face afterschool league program.
