     Archery in Mississippi Schools (AIMS) is designed to introduce 4th-12th grade students to the sport of International-Style Target Archery during their Physical Education Class or as an extracurricular team sport.  Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fishiers and Parks (MDWFP) is the driving force behind AIMS.  The program, which began in 2005 with 10 schools, is now in almost 500 schools and in 50 counties with more then 70,000 students participating each year.  The growth of AIMS has followed the national trendof Archery being the fastest growing sport nationwide and statewide.  The first statewide Archery Invitational was held in Mississippi in 2011 with 400 student archers competing;  and that number has expanded to over 3,900 student archers competing annually in the AIMS State Championships.  Mississippi students also rank at the highest levels in both National and International Archery competitions every year.
