    This year my coach wanted me to try and go to the junior camp in Colorado Springs. He told me not to worry about getting an application or anything like that because he would take care of it for me. Well, now I'm worried. I think it's probably too late, but if it isn't, where can I find the application form for the camp? I've been looking around the internet for the past half hour and still haven't been able to find it, so if anyone can tell me where to find it that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -Trappy

    Here is the shoot I think you are speaking about.

    National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships (Shotgun), July 25 - August 1, 2009, Colorado Springs, CO

    Suggest you call USA Shooting Competitions Department and see what the deal is.

    719/866-4670.

    They have been redoing their website recently and the information may have not been reposted.

    Tom, it's not a shoot, it's a camp put on by, I believe, the SCTP.

    If indeed the Junior Olympic Development Camp (JODC) is cancelled this year then that is a great loss to the sport.

    Trappy - the application will normally be posted on the USA Shooting website and the home page would carry an announcement. DO what Tom said - call USA Shooting and see if you can get an update on the status of the JODC and the timeline.

    The camp is by invitation only and is a fantastic opportunity to receive world class coaching and instruction in the Olympic shotgun sports.

    Trappy - have you shot bunker before or have access to a facility?

    I have not shot bunker before, but last year a girl on my team was lucky enough to go to the camp. My club is getting a bunker within the next 2 or 3 years.

    I think they are having it because I was asked to write a letter of recommendation for a junior in our league. The LOR was needed by the end of May to be sent in with application. That's all I know about this camp.

    I just called Bill Roy at USAS. Got voice mail. When I find out the true story I will post it. Trappy... where are you located?

    Zinger - I suspect the LOR you wrote was for the application to the NRA Advanced Junior Shotgun Camps (AJSC). If it was for the JODC then the application would be up on the USA Shooting site and it is not - easy to confuse the two.

    I just got off the phone with Bill Roy the Director of Operations at USAS. There is NO camp this year. Lack of funding was one of the reasons plus his is the first year of a new shot gun coach and his plate is full. There will be a camp next year. Bill said that you should feel free to give him a call to discuss this further.

    You should try to visit the Bunkers at either Cardinal Center or Cincinnati and get some experience shooting bunker. These are the nearest bunkers to you.

    Follow the links to our website for more information on olympic trap shooting.
