Events Planned: Target Round, Elimination Round, and Clout (shoot the castle!) round are on the agenda.

First, NASP students are welcome to spectate during the morning two rounds and view olympic style archery shot the entire length of a football field. After the morning rounds, they can join in the fun!

For a nominal $10 fee, NASP archers will shoot an outdoor "600 round" (30 arrows at each of 2 distances, or one distance and two sizes of targets).
Distances will be "as tolerated" by the archer and scores will be kept for educational purposes. To begin, we will hold a 30 minute fun shoot where archers test their bows and find their favorite distances. There will also be a fun CLOUT shoot at a castle and an elimination round.  Registered Yeoman archers can shoot this at no additional charge. Bows/arrows will be included for those that do not own their own.

Frequent emailed questions:

What about mosquitos?
There is no standing water nearby and the field is very dry, but please bring repellant as a preventative. If you are not used to sun exposure you should also bring light longsleeve clothes or else use sunscreen.

Do I have to join the TSAA/USA Archery ($50 per year) to compete? 
NO, for the NASP FUN SHOOT event there is a mere $10 fee and no "join" requirement. 
BUT:The two day tournament has trophies, and is sanctioned by World Archery, so that any competitors can shoot state, national, and even world records, and we pay certified judges for this. Youth that are competitive enough can use the scores shot in this to apply for the USA Junior Dream Team, the USA Junior Archery Team, and adults, the USA Senior Archery Team. (Fame and discounts on equipment are then possible for that archer)
In order for the tournament to achieve this status, the competitors of the two-day event must be members. We are allowed to have a "guest" division and such guests shoot all the tournament but are not eligible to win trophies, set records, etc..

Question 2: Do I need to bring a bow and arrows?
For NASP fun shoot on Saturday PM, all gear is available but if you have your own gear you are welcome to bring and use it.  If it is more than 20 pounds in bow weight you may have to shoot with our bow so your arrows are not damaged by pass-throughs.
For the two-day tournament all archers bring their own gear. For the youngest novice archers, we may have a bow that will work - write if you think you might need this. 

Question 3: What distances will I shoot?
For the NASP fun shoot, experts will help you will pick the best distance.
For the two-day event, your age and gender determine the distance.  There is a link on the information page to a chart of ages, gender, distances so you can find your division. The men will shoot as far as 98 yards!(90 meters)

Question 4: What do I need to bring?  For the Fun NASP shoot on Saturday afternoon, just dress appropriately for outdoors and shooting, including tennis shoes (not sandals). 
There is a link for the dress code for the two-day tournament (Yes, the World Archery and USA Archery have rules that include a dress code) on the tournament information page on www.texasarchery.org.
