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.
