Greetings SCTP and SASP Coaches,
As a reminder, September 1st marks the beginning of a new season with the Scholastic Clay Target and Scholastic Action Shooting Programs. Membership renewals for coaches and athletes are required to retain member benefits including liability insurance, use of the SSSF SHOT system and eligibility to participate in all of the great SCTP and SASP events at the local, state, regional and national levels. In addition, membership is required to take full advantage of all of the SCTP/SASP deals and promotions and fundraisers as well as camp opportunities, scholarships and the All Scholastic Team.
NOTE: If starting a new team, the head coach and/or team administrator should initiate these steps. In most cases the head coach/team administrator will also coordinate registration for all members of their local team.
Requirements for registration of all coaches and registered volunteers are as follows:
- Complete and return your 2016/2017 Team Registration form for SCTP and/or SASP.
- Complete and return your 2016/2017 Volunteer Registration form for SCTP and/or SASP.
- Create (new teams) or update (returning teams) your information on the SHOT System. See help document for more information.
- Pay your $30 registration fee for each volunteer. Fees can be paid online through the SHOT system individually or in bulk.
- Ensure your background check is current (a new check is required every two years) by logging into the SHOT system to verify the last date approved.
- Take the Positive Coaching Alliance Double Goal Coaches Course if you have not done so previously. There is no cost for the course when using the SSSF-provided voucher code. Volunteers should take this course only one time.
Requirement for registration of all athletes are as follows:
- Complete and return a 2016/2017 athlete consent/waiver form for SCTP and/or SASP for each athlete. Head coaches must keep a copy of the signed form and return the original to the program office listed on the form.
- Complete and retain the 2016/2017 Sportsmanship Contract form for SCTP and/or SASP for each athlete.
- Complete and retain the 2016/2017 Medical Consent form for SCTP and/or SASP for each athlete.
- Update the athlete information pages in the SHOT system. Ensure all contact information is correct and update the School Class and Classification information for each athlete.
- Pay the $20 athlete registration fee for each athlete. Fees can be paid online through the SHOT system individually or in bulk.
- Join and/or renew memberships with the National Governing Bodies (NGB) for skeet (NSSA), sporting clays (NSCA) and / or trap (ATA). NGB membership is a requirement to participate in SCTP state, regional and national championship events. PLEASE join or renew through the SHOT system as a portion of the membership fees sold through the SHOT system are retained for the SCTP Scholarship Program.
Thank you for your participation in the SCTP and SASP! If you have any questions on the registration process please contact your state advisor for SCTP or SASP or regional program representative or national program staff.
Be safe, have fun and enjoy another great season!
Your SASP, SCTP and SSSF Program Staff
