National Archery Day was submitted by the National Archery in the Schools Program in March 2015. The second Saturday in May is generally the time the NASP tournament is held. This is the largest archery tournament in the world. Each year kids from all over the U.S. look forward to traveling to Louisville, Kentucky, for this culminating event to end their school archery year. The event draws over 11,500 students participating in NASP.
The Registrar of National Day Calendar proclaimed National Archery Day in March 2015 to be observed on the 2nd Saturday of May, annually.
