The Scholastic Action Shooting Program is excited to announce, that after a five-year hiatus, the SASP Junior Olympic Development Camp (JODC) is back. This is a great opportunity for SASP athletes and coaches to learn more about the Olympic disciplines of Air Pistol and Sport Pistol. You will be learning from Olympic coaches and former US National Team members.
The 2019 Junior Olympic Development Camp (JODC) will take place in Colorado Springs, CO at the Olympic Training Center training grounds for USA’s Olympic shooting athletes!
The purpose of the JODC camp is:
- To assist USA Shooting in its pursuit of identifying SASP Athletes who have the potential to become USA Shooting Team members and, ultimately, Olympic champions
- To provide SASP Coaches and State Advisors with increased knowledge and skills to become more effective in working with SASP Athletes.
The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation will host the JODC, which is specifically for SASP Athletes, Head and Assistant Coaches, and State Advisors registered with the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation. Coaches, State Advisors, and all registered, active SASP Athletes who are 14 years of age or older in the Intermediate Advanced through Varsity Division, are eligible to apply.
The U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Shooting have confirmed May 22-27, 2019 for the camp with coaches attending all days and athletes attending May 23-27. Interested coaches and athletes must apply and be selected for the camp. (Please note these are the same dates as SCTP’s JODC at the OTC.) The 2019 Junior Olympic Development Camp has room for up to twelve (12) qualified SASP Athletes. (That doesn’t mean all slots must be filled). For active registered Coaches and State Advisors, there are up to six (6) slots for coach training. We do not have final coach beds confirmed, so the application will show two different prices. One is based on staying in the dorms, the other is for staying at a local hotel. We will confirm with you once we have the final number of beds available.
For complete details, please review the information sheet and application forms below or on the SASP Forms and Handbook section of our website. The deadline for receiving all completed application packages is Midnight, Thursday, April 19th, 2019 Central Time……NO EXCEPTIONS!
