Coaches Need to Know Information
Coaches and Alumni Shoot Off, sponsored by FCS Financial – To give more coaches and NASP alumni a chance to participate, we will have our Coaches’ Shoot Off, each day after the last flight is over. Coaches and NASP alumni will have a chance at their own friendly bullseye competition, all while supporting youth archery. The top three highest scoring coaches from all three days will receive a prize. Coaches and NASP alumni will get a practice round of five arrows at 15 meters. From 15 meters, each participant will shoot four arrows of the same color and one arrow of a different color, which is worth double the points to help break ties. Participants will score each other. Your $10 donation to participate supports youth archery. You can register at Coaches’ Check In.
Check in / Coaches’ Information – While not required, we highly encourage all teams to pay their registration fees before the tournament ($30 for bullseye and $30 for 3D) online or by mail at PO Box 366, Jefferson City, MO 65102. If sending by mail, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know the check number, check amount, how many registered for bullseye and 3D, and schools you are paying for.
Coaches’ Check In will be inside the Branson Convention Center at the top of the escalator on the second floor next to the windows overlooking Branson Landing.
Coaches will receive archer lane assignments from MDC, and coach lanyards for entry into the tournament and T-shirt vouchers from MCHF. If you have less than 12 archers, you’ll be given 1 coach lanyard and 1 T-shirt voucher, if you have more than 12 archers, you’ll be given 2 coach lanyards and 2 T-shirt vouchers. If you haven’t paid your registration fees online or by mail, you will be asked to pay at Check In. Coaches’ Check In will be open on Wednesday, March 20 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. and open Thursday through Saturday at 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.
2024 MoNASP T-shirts, sponsored in conjunction by Bomgaars Supply, Inc. and Allen Company, will be available for pick up at the T-shirt vendor’s booth on the second floor. Please provide accurate quantities and T-shirt sizes when you register for the tournament. Each archer will receive a free T-shirt with registration – if an archer competes in both bullseye and 3D, they will only receive one T-shirt. Please note that exchanges will be limited to within one size of the T-shirt ordered. All exchanges are subject to availability.
IMPORTANT: Coaches receive two free T-shirts per team of 12 or more. Just like last year, two T-shirt vouchers will be handed out at Coaches’ Check In. Coaches may present the voucher to the T-shirt vendor to receive their free MoNASP 2024 shirt. Additional shirts will be available for purchase at our T-shirt vendor.
Bus Parking – Bus parking will be at the south end of the Branson Landing; this is south of Bass Pro Shops and close to the bridge. Buses can unload on Sycamore Street at the main entrance of the Convention Center.
