NASP® Attends Oceans of Opportunity
March 29 - April 2: The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®) staffed a booth at the 126th AAHPERD National Convention and Exposition, Oceans of Opportunity. AAHPERD is the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. This year's convention was held in San Diego California, at the San Diego Convention Center. As the name suggests the convention showcases the latest in Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance; programs, curriculum and activities. Games, new products, nutrition programs, and innovative recreational activities of all kinds are presented to attendees. Health and Physical Education Teachers from around the world attend this convention annually.
This education and activities based convention is an ideal arena for showcasing the National Archery in the Schools Program and its' in-school physical education curriculum. The annual venue provides a global audience to promote and grow NASP®.
There were a lot of interested individuals stopping by the booth seeking NASP® information. Nearly 170 new contacts were made. We distributed materials and NASP® DVD's to interested teachers from the Unites States and seven foreign countries. We received a large number of accolades from attendees already involved in NASP®.
The positive comments were welcome and interesting to say the least, as was the opportunity to see new items and programs for the Health and Physical Education classroom. As a result of the contacts made at this convention NASP® may be able to expand into one or two new Countries soon; adding to the five foreign countries and 47 states already offering in-school archery education to their students.
It was great to hear the comments, see all of the people making it happen, and speak with those newly interested in NASP. We look forward to this same opportunity at next year's convention in Boston.
