MLCA’s archery club is open to scholars in 5th grade and above. The club is run under the guidelines of NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program). Opportunities to engage in competitive archery will occur each year. All necessary equipment is provided; however, if a student would like to use his own equipment, NASP guidelines must be met. Having every archer shooting the same equipment provides a level playing field so that no archer gains a mechanical advantage over other competitors through the purchase of specialized equipment. Archery is very safe; NASP has never had a serious injury during the many years of its existence. It is also a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Students may earn the opportunity to compete at state and national NASP competitions, as well.
