    Is the ATA no longer in support of the Scholastic Program and hold it's own shoots?

    Amateur Trapshooting Association “AIMs” for North American Youth Shooters

    Vandalia, Ohio – October 8, 2008—AIM” was created to instill the three elements of academics, integrity, and marksmanship in today's youth, who are the future of our sport” states Edie Fleeman, ATA Youth Director.

    The AIM program was designed to grow with the youth, from elementary school through college, allowing them to compete with teams of like ability. Youth shooters will learn not only the fundamentals of trapshooting, but also; proper shooting etiquette, firearm safety and handling, and academic responsibility.

    The Amateur Trapshooting Association serves as the governing body for the sport of American style trapshooting. The ATA's mission is to promote and govern the sport throughout the world. As the faithful protector of trapshooting, the ATA not only governs the sport's rules and regulations, but also seeks ways to enhance the sport and stimulate participation. The ATA has been instrumental in developing programs to increase interest in the sport with its creation of National Trapshooting Day, Satellite Grand Americans, Achievement Recognition and other valuable programs.

    As a SCTP coach for the past three years it would be nice to know what the ATA has in mind with this program. As the NSSF is no longer running the SCTP and a new organization the SSSF has taken it over what is their plan and are the two programs working together or seperately. A little communication would be nice so the coaches have an idea of what is going on. Does anybody out there have any info on what the plan is?
