February 2nd, 2012: Louisville, KY, Greenwich, CT – Outdoor Roadmap and NASP© announce today the next generation of archery competition — The NASP© e-Championship.
With NASP® now celebrating its 10th year — with 2 million students and more than 10,000 participating schools — it has set its sights on creating the next generation archery tournament. The NASP© e-Championship is an exciting new platform that will give every student the opportunity to compete in an international competition for scholarships and school archery equipment while benefitting each student on an individual level.
NASP® has partnered with the Outdoor Roadmap to host this completely new generation online tournament. The platform provided by Outdoor Roadmap will allow 100 percent of NASP® students to participate in an international competitive event with scores, progress and rankings that will be presented in an all-new, feature-rich, pro sports-like application on the Outdoor Roadmap’s web site: www.outdoorroadmap.com/echamp.
The NASP© e-Championship gives students the opportunity to experience the excitement of competition and enjoy the beneﬁts of increased student conﬁdence, socialization, attendance, behavior, attitude and goal setting. The tournament will also give students the opportunity to win a share of the $70,000 in NASP© equipment and scholarships.
Participants in the NASP© e-Championship will also be eligible to be named to the first, NASP® All-American Team! The team will be comprised of the top 16 NASP© archers — the overall top-ﬁve-ﬁnishing girls, overall top-ﬁve-ﬁnishing boys and the next six top-ﬁnishing archers registered in the e-Championship.
“Its a very exciting program that promises to create buzz about NASP with the younger generation. We feel that by engaging youth of today, we plant the seed for future generations of outdoor enthusiasts that are so important to our state conservation programs,” said Roy Grimes, President of NASP.
You can log into the e-Championship at www.outdoorroadmap.com/echamp. starting February 1, 2012. The tournament will run through April 30, 2012.
By creating an online environment for scoring tournaments and analyzing archer data, NASP®, its instructors, and students gain a cutting-edge tool that can be used over an archer’s lifetime as well as an interactive portal to attract new participants to the sport.
The scoreboard technology developed by Outdoor Roadmap is the first of its kind for the shooting sports. The use of technologies is essential in the mission to recruit, retain and engage future generations of outdoor enthusiasts.
