    NASP promotes archery in Mpumalanga

    There are currently 15 active schools or units in the province.

    The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is a non-profit organisation with an aim to promote Archery with children. They provide sporting opportunities to all children. Physically challenged individuals can also participate in their competitions.
    At the beginning of 2018 NASP SA started an initiative called Adult Archery Group (AAG) to include adults to ensure that instructors and parents can also get involved. This assists in developing their skills to train the children better.
    During the 2018 Inter Provincial and National Championships held in Rustenburg, three teams were selected to represent South Africa at the NASP African Tournament to be held over the period 2 – 4 May at Mistico Equestrian Estate in Paarl. Countries participating are South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
    There are a Junior National Team, National Development Team and the National AAG Team. Mpumalanga have only two persons representing the province and Mr Hardus Pieters of Bethal is one of the AAG Team members.
    There are currently 15 active schools or units in the province. The National Championships will be hosted in Witbank during the September school Holidays.
    The next competition will be held in Kriel at Laerskool Krielpark on 11 May.
