I'm a coach and two of my kids are on a (sctp) clay target team. Great program! And it grows every year. More teams, shooters, adult volunteers, invitational shoots, conferences, sponsors and information. And obviously we are very fortunate to have many "clay target" gun clubs to practice/ league shoot at around the area!
But this coming season our team is building a pistol/rifle division. But it seems the sasp is just starting to build in this area. Nowhere near the teams, info, gun ranges (steel target set ups) and youth competition shoots out there. Its more just practice and the state (and surrounding states) shoot, finishing at Nationals. So im looking for the gun clubs with a steel challenge set up, maybe a league, and/or steel challenge (adult/youth) shoots. Also other teams we can practice/ shoot against for fun. These young athletes can practice all they want, but its not the same as a competition when the excitement, stress and nerves kick in.
So far, I have a experienced pistol/rifle lead coach, we have a place to practice and a generous sponsor donating the ar500 steel targets and stands. Im shooting for October to get squads together, athletes registration (sasp) completed and start practicing. The athletes and i are excited.
So i started the thread just to see whats out there, to let people know its out there and im excited, just like to read and talk about it! Lol. Like the "shotgun sports" thread.
