NASP-SA COMPETITIONS

There are more than 200 schools, clubs, churches and branches in all nine provinces actively participating in NASP and tens more schools are in the process of joining. South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana are actively involved. The first ever NASP Africa All Stars Championship was hosted in South Africa in 2014 and is now an annual event.

There are 12 countries involved in NASP with the following the more active ones: USA, Canada, Australia, New Zeeland, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and United Kingdom.

NASP competitions are presented on the following levels:
  • In and between NASP-SA schools
  • Regional
  • Provincial
  • Inter Provincial (between provincial teams)
  • National
  • International (World and Africa Championships)

NASP-SA presented its first National Championship on Saturday October 3, 2009 and since then continues to do so every year. The top archer in 2009 scored 289 out of a possible 300. Should he have obtained the same results during the NASP Invitation World Tournament in Florida in the USA in October 2009, he would have obtained a joined 6th place in the world.

NASP-SA made history in 2012 by being the first country to take medals from the strong USA participation. We won gold for Grade 7 and Bronze for Grade 9.

The present South African record is 300 out of 300 shot by Trevon Naido, from Ekhuruleni Province 2019
