The archery equipment used in NASP® is highly standardized to be safe, durable, economical, and most importantly, a universal fit for every student. In NASP® learning the “process” of shooting is stressed far more than arrow scores. The only bow used in NASP® is a “Genesis®” compound which has no let-off and is adjustable from 10-20 pounds in draw weight at any draw length. Only full-length aluminum arrows are used in NASP® to fit every student and to preserve NASP®’s perfect safety record. Sights, release aids, and stabilizers are kept out of NASP® to facilitate equipment sharing among students in archery class. Finally, NASP® students are taught to shoot at an international, 80 centimeter target face. While students start learning at an “always hit” distance of 5-7 yards, competitive distances in NASP® are 10 and 15 yards.
