The Oxford Central School has participated in the National Archery in the Schools Program since 2006. The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is a joint venture between state departments of Education and Wildlife. The program promotes student education, physical education and participation in the life long sport of Archery. The program’s focus is to provide International Style Target Archery training in physical education classes grades 4 - 12. NASP is a program designed for students that promotes the valuable lessons presented by the sport of archery. Students learn many skills that carry-over into their academic classes: patience, cooperation, dedication, team work and integrity.
The objective of the program is to provide another sport that students can participate in everyday. The NASP program allows studnets from grades 4-12 to compete against each other without advantage of size, athleticism or many other physical attributes that might accompany other more traditional sports. This program allows students of all abilites to particpate.
