How the SCTP has helped me as a young person: I started shooting SCTP in the 3rd grade. I remember the support and help I was given by the coaches and older shooters on our team. This has made me become more mindful of new shooters on our team now. I try to be helpful to the young shooters because of the help I was so graciously given when I started.
