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 10 meters. From 10 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. Particpants will score each other. Your $10 donation to participate supports youth archery. You can register at Coaches’ Check In.
