Archery School seeks sponsorship
The National Archery in the Schools Programme Namibia (NASP), in partnership with the Archery Association of Namibia (AAN) will host the 2017 NASP Africa All Star Championship in Windhoek in July 2017.
Teams for South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana have confirmed their participation, while Namibia will be represented by two teams of 16 archers in total. Altogether, 112 archers from Grade 4 to 12 will participate at the prestigious event.
For the tournament to be a success, the school is in need of N$200,000 for the championships and has called on members of the public and private sector to help contribute towards the total expenses.
Karola Woortman, the secretary of the Archery Association of Namibia said, “any assistance in cash or kind to help cover these costs will be highly appreciated. With sponsorship we can promote your company through exposure, while advertising material will be welcomed at the competition. Further exposure will also be available through media releases and printed coverage”.
Meanwhile, Woortman said “ archery is a very active and dynamic sports code, because of this approach towards the sport, we have concentrated on bringing archery into schools.”
Using a ranking system from scores of competitions covering the entire of Namibia, a team of 32 children will be selected to participate at the championship from 6 to 7 July in Windhoek.
