SCTP has American skeet, trap, and sporting clays teams, as well as international skeet, double trap, and bunker trap.
It all starts with a person volunteering to serve as head coach, plus at least one student athlete. The head coach then goes to our website to register the team. The coach can register at this link.
The head coach must be at least 21 years, pass a background check, take an online coach’s course, and pay a small fee. You can see the full requirements in the General Guidelines for SSSF Volunteer Positions.
A partnership with a local gun club is an important early step in this process.
No, school affiliation is not required, but it is a good way to tie your team to the community and possibly have some additional community support.
Each individual state is different regarding minimum age. Please see your state for that age limit. There is not a maximum age; collegiate shooters must be enrolled as a full-time student in college.
You can have as few as one student athlete and as many as you can gather! There is no limit.
No. At this time, our insurance company requires an original signature on each consent waiver to be filed at the main office and available upon request.
Who qualifies as an adult volunteer for the program?
Any person working closely with athletes, even if not on the line coaching — for example, a team photographer.
