Archery in the Schools

  • Many Walmart stores will begin to carry the NASP®-approved Genesis bow, and 2,100 stores across the country will establish a NASP®-approved archery section within their sporting goods department. Walmart will carry archery accessories including Easton arrows, flipper arrow rests, quivers, fletching and soft bow cases. Maurice Sporting Goods, a 45-year sporting goods vendor partner with Walmart, is supplying Walmart stores with this exciting new lineup of NASP®-approved Easton/Genesis Youth Archery accessories.  These items are just now being brought into select locations, and in early 2016 a significant number of Walmart stores across the country will begin to carry them year-round!
  • What NASP Is About The Archery in the Schools Program is designed to introduce target archery in 4th thru 12th grade physical education classes during the school day.
