The National Archery in the Schools Program is designed to get middle-school and high-school students to adopt archery as a lifetime sport.
Looks like it’s working; an independent study showed thatÂ 28 percent of the students who take the two-week physical education-class curriculum end up purchasing their own archery equipment.
Wow. SinceÂ more than a million students have gone through the program nationwide since 2002,Â a lot of bows and arrows must be getting sold.
The AIS program is currently being taught in more than 160 West VirginiaÂ schools.
