The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) offers a variety of fun, team-based shooting tournaments in both the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP). These programs are open to student athletes aged elementary through college.
Does your child want to go to the Olympics? USA Shooting is dedicated to the development of Youth Olympic Shooting Sports. They train dedicated junior athletes in the hopes to one day compete in the Olympic Games, Pan American Games, World Shooting Championships and other international competitions. There are many programs available through USA Shooting and partner organizations like Progressive Position Air Pistol (PPP) and the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
Getting your child involved in the shooting sports is a great way for them to learn proper and safe firearms handling, develop their marksmanship skills, and meet other kids with similar interests. Not to mention, programs like these will also allow you to pass along your knowledge and share your passions with your family.
