    A few highlights...

    FEES:

    ATA membership is required. The ATA Junior membership fee is $12 per target
    year and this fee is available to all Academic Athletes. The AIM for ATA registration fee is $25 per individual. 100% of registration fee monies will go toward awards and scholarships.

    ---------

    TARGETS:

    500 ATA registered singles targets (shot at any ATA registered event) per individual are required to qualify for the AIM for ATA National Championship to be held in conjunction with the Grand American. Squads may enter their State Championship with 300 registered singles targets but each squad member must have 500 registered singles targets to be able to enter the National Championship.

    To facilitate getting the minimum number of registered targets, clubs, especially those with one or two trap fields, are encouraged to host an ATA registered tournament which may be limited to AIM for ATA participants only. Hosting clubs must comply with State Associations and ATA Rules governing registered tournaments.

    Clubs with only one or two trap fields are encouraged to work with their
    state associations to host AIM events.

    ----------


    COURSES OF FIRE:

    Singles will be the main event, but coaches are encouraged to train their team
    members in handicap and doubles to prepare them for their future as ATA shooters.

    ----------

    RELOADS:

    Reloads will be allowed.

    ----------

    COACH REQUIREMENTS:

    Therefore, each team must have at least one ATA Shooting Coach on the coaching
    staff and be led by a Coach age 21 or over. Current coaches will have through
    the 2010 target year to successfully graduate from the NRA/ATA Trap Coach
    School or the NRA/USAS Shotgun Coach School.

    There are two ways to become an ATA Shooting Coach: (1) by successfully completing an NRA/ATA Trap Coach School, or (2) by successfully completing the NRA/USAS Shotgun Coach School (which, in addition to trap, teaches skeet, sporting clays and International) and using the form at the back of this brochure to request credentialing as an ATA Shooting Coach.

    Now is the time to push the ATA to offer reduced rate daily fees for AIM shooters...
