    A&A Shooters' 2008 season draws 100 local kids

    - Ledger Dispatch -

    Amador County's Scholastic Clay Target Program for trapshooting started its seventh season last Saturday with close to 40 new shooters and 60 returning shooters signing up for the 2008 target year.

    The A&A Shooters roster has participants in two divisions:

    - intermediate (junior high), entry level and advanced

    - senior (high school) junior varsity and varsity.

    The assistant coaches for this season are Bill Swingle, Wayne Weinert, Christopher Holmes, Danny Wolters-O'Neal and Kathleen Lynch with head coach Richard Lynch.

    All assistant coaches have passed the National Rifle Association shotgun coach training course and are Certified Level 1 shotgun coaches. Richard Lynch is an NRA Certified Level 2 coach and one of the few in the nation certified as a coach trainer.

    The A&A Shooters are one of 23 SCTP trap teams in California, with 15 of the teams being in Northern California. The A&A Shooters practice on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings at the True Sportsman Club trap range near Jackson and will begin competitions April 5 with a trip to Los Banos Gun Club.

    Other competitions throughout the season will be on Saturdays at Angels Gun Club, Sacramento Valley Shooting Center, Coon Creek Trap and Skeet in Lincoln, Stockton Gun Club and Livermore/Pleasanton Rod and Gun.

    The season will culminate at the State Championships June 21 at Kingsburg Gun Club.

    The SCTP is a nationwide program that offers youth an opportunity to learn safe gun handling, commitment, responsibility, leadership and teamwork. The program teaches them a sport that they can participate in for the rest of their lives.

    Along with trapshooting, the program also offers two other shotgun sports, skeet and sporting clays. It is one of many youth shooting programs developed and coordinated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation in Newtown, Conn.
