Warsaw Lions Club National Archery in the Schools Program

National Archery in the Schools Program

We’re building funding to sponsor a National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) for the Warsaw School District. This program promotes student education, physical education and participation in the life long sport of archery.

Students learn skills that will inspire them to spend more time with wild things in wild places. Natural resource professionals are convinced learning target shooting skills will result in character and self-reliance development that will serve the future of wildlife conservation well.
