Passion, determination and the right aim, ensured part of these archers from the Aroab area to qualify as basic archery instructors for the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) at the course organised by the Archery Association of Namibia last weekend.

Eleven archery coaches from the Aroab area qualified as basic archery instructors for the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). The course was organised by the Archery Association of Namibia at the Excelsior Private School last weekend. Namibia’s national coach, Marja Woortman, presented the course to the following participants:
Hennie Viljoen, Gloudien Minaar, Ruan de Waal, Lourens van Staden, Willem Myburgh Blaauw, Natasha Gericke, Nicol du Plessis, Wiehan Burger, Hendrik Kotze, Manie Blaauw and Wynand Geldenhuys. The participants will utilise their new skills to coach archery at the Excelsior Private School.  The school has also been approved by the Archery Association of Namibia as the first of six schools to qualify for a grant from the National Archery in the Schools Program for which they received equipment including 12 bows, arrows, a maintenance kit, and target butts.
Other schools interested in including archery in their sports activities should contact the Archery Association of Namibia for assistance and apply to be considered for a grant.
The next NASP event in which young archers from schools across the country can compete against each other will be the Sparta Year End Shoot on 28 December in Walvis Bay.
