The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) will hold a basic archery instructor workshop Dec. 6 at Glencoe Charter School in Franklin from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. for the Archery in Louisiana Schools Program (ALAS). Preregistration for the event is required.

ALAS is a part of the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) that is designed to introduce student's grades 4-12 to international target style archery. The program is designed to be taught as part of the in-school curriculum. Most commonly the program is integrated into the schools physical education curriculum and is taught in the school's gymnasium. Students in schools that teach the ALAS curriculum are then eligible to compete in state, national and world tournaments. Once exposed to the program many schools develop after school programs and archery clubs.
 
The sport of archery is a great way to get students involved in not only a lifelong sport, but also in their school, and into the outdoors. ALAS is a program that looks to inspire confidence through focus and discipline that the sport of archery instills. Nationwide, more than 16 million students have participated in the NASP program in its first 15 years. More than 2.4 million students participate in NASP annually.

To register for the workshop and for more information, contact John Sturgis at jsturgis@wlf.la.gov or 337-948-0255.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana's abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at www.wlf.la.gov. To receive recreational or commercial fishing email and text alerts, signup at http://www.wlf.la.gov/signup.
