OAS is excited to be partnering with NASP. NASP is a great program that has brought archery to hundreds of schools using the Genesis Compound Bow. We have been thrilled to see more schools offer both of our programs so that students have the opportunity to shoot different styles of archery, both the Olympic-style recurve and compound bow. OAS and NASP will be working together to further the sport of archery and to make positive impacts on our youth through the sport. A big thank you to NASP CEO, Roy Grimes and the rest of the NASP team for this opportunity.
