- This tournament is the annual "culminating event" for schools participating in the NASP. The basic foundation of the NASP is the in-school archery unit. Therefore, schools that teach archery as part of the in-school curriculum are qualified to compete in this tournament. This tournament is not for schools or clubs that offer archery only as an after-school activity.
- This tournament is for NASP schools that have participated in the state Qualifying Tournament held prior to the state tournament and have been invited to attend the state tournament. For details about the Qualifying Tournament contact email@example.com
- Teams or Individuals will register in either the Elementary (4th&5th grade), Middle (6-8th grade), or High School (9-12th grade) Division. A student in a lower grade may shoot for a team in his or her school district that is in a higher Division but not vice versa. Schools that cannot field a team may have students compete for Individual awards.
- Schools are encouraged to bring adult volunteers to assist.
- Team: NASP archery teams must contain 12-24 students, at least 4 of which must be of the opposite gender. Team members must be determined at the time of registration. Substitutions may be made at Check In for no shows. No substitutions or changes may be made after the tournament begins.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do we pay the tournament registration fee?
Schools will have the option of creating an invoice when they register on-line. Mail payments to: TASP C/O Teresa Meyers, 6140 Dick Price Rd, Fort Worth, TX 76140.
What is attending school?
The attending school is the school in which the student is enrolled.
What is a division?
There are three divisions in this archery tournament; Elementary (4th&5th grade), Middle (6-8th grade), or High School (9-12th grade). Individual and team competitions will occur within these three divisions.
What is a flight?
A flight is a shooting time. There will be six shooting times or flights during this tournament, Flight 1 @ 9:00 a.m., Flight 2 @ 10:10 a.m., Flight 3 @11:20 a.m., Flight 4 @ 1:00 p.m., Flight 5 @ 2:10 p.m., Flight 6 @ 3:20 p.m.
What is a flight preference?
A flight preference is your choice of one of the four flight times 9:00, 10:10, 11:20, 1:00, 2:10 or 3:20. You can add your entire school to a single flight preference or you may add your school to different flights.
What if my Flight preference is unavailable?
If your Flight Preference is not available we will attempt to honor your next Flight Preferences.
What do I do if two shooters will be using the same bow?
If two shooters are using the same bow, they should be assigned to the different flights.
What are "shooter A" and "shooter B"?
Within a lane set, there are two students shooting, shooter A and shooter B, from different schools. In other words, there are two students per target, an "A" and a "B."
What if my team has one or more members shooting up on a higher division team? For example, a 5th grade student "up" on a Middle (6th-8th grade) team.
This student will be considered a middle school team member and an elementary individual. This student could win a team award in the middle school division and an individual award in the elementary division.
Why must a team contain 12-24 team members if only 12 members' scores will be added to constitute the team score for the competition?
The NASP promotes inclusion of many students of all genders and abilities. By requiring teams to have more members than are scored, it is hoped that schools will include members on the teams that might not otherwise be able to participate. In other words, a team member whose score might not be high enough to include in the team's score, won't reduce the team's final ranking.
