The Archery in Louisiana Schools (ALAS) program promotes international-style target archery as part of the in-school curriculum in grades 4-12. The curriculum covers archery history, safety, technique, equipment, mental concentration, core strengthening physical fitness and self improvement.

Teachers attend an eight-hour Basic Archery Instructor (BAI) training program to learn to teach the in-school curriculum. These trainings are conducted by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ education staff free of charge. Students use standardized equipment to shoot at targets placed before an arrow curtain in the school gymnasium.

Lawrence, Phoenix Magnet Elementary, Poland Elementary and Junior High, Benton Middle School, Buckeye Junior High School, Cope Middle School, Haughton Middle School, Bossier High JROTC, Tioga Junior High, Caddo Magnet High School and LA National Guard Youth Challenge Program.
