Apply Now for 2019 SCTP Junior Olympic Development Camp

Scholastic Clay Target Program coaches and athletes are invited to apply for a very special camp this spring focused on learning the fun and challenging clay target disciplines of international (i.e. “bunker”) trap and international skeet. The 2019 Junior Olympic Development Camp (JODC) will take place in Colorado Springs, CO at the Olympic Training Center and USA Shooting’s International Shotgun Range at Fort Carson– training grounds for USA’s Olympic shooting athletes!

The purpose of the JODC camp is twofold:

1. To assist USA Shooting in its pursuit of identifying SCTP Athletes who have the potential to become USA Shooting Team members and, ultimately, Olympic champions;

and

2. To provide SCTP Coaches and State Advisors with increased knowledge and skills in order to become more effective in working with SCTP Athletes.

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation will host the JODC, which is specifically for SCTP Athletes, Head and Assistant Coaches, and State Advisors registered with the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation. Coaches, State Advisors, and all registered, active SCTP Athletes who are 14 years of age or older in the Intermediate Advanced through Varsity Division, are eligible to apply.

The National Coach Training Staff will conduct introductory training for SCTP Athletes in the Olympic disciplines of Bunker Trap and International Skeet.

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. The 2019 Junior Olympic Development Camp has room for up to twenty four (24) qualified SCTP Athletes. (That doesn’t mean all slots must be filled). For active registered Coaches and State Advisors, there are up to ten (10) slots for coach training

Firearms Safety Depends on You

NSSF Safety FlyerFrom the time you pick up a firearm, you become part of a system over which you have complete control. You are the only part of the system that can make a gun safe — or unsafe.

Here are 10 basics of gun handling that you must know, courtesy of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF):

  • 1. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
  • 2. Firearms should be unloaded when not actually in use.
  • 3. Don’t rely on your gun’s “Safety.”
  • 4. Be sure of your target and what’s beyond it.
  • 5. Use correct ammunition.
  • 6. If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, handle with care!
  • 7. Always wear eye and ear protection when shooting.
  • 8. Be sure the barrel is clear of obstructions before shooting.
  • 9. Don’t alter or modify your gun, and have guns serviced regularly.
  • 10. Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the firearm you are using.

NSSF has developed a booklet that explains each of these gun safety rules in detail. You can view or download it here.

NSSF also offers other safety literature for use by individuals, families, or shooting teams. You can find it at www.nssf.org/safety/lit/.
