2016 SSSF/NRA All-Scholastic Team Announced

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) and the NRA Competitive Shooting Division are proud to announce members of the 2016 All-Scholastic Team.

The All-Scholastic Team recognizes the top student-athletes in the SSSF's Scholastic Clay Target and Scholastic Action Shooting Program for their achievements in the classroom, on the range and in their communities.

Through an application process, 2016 All-Scholastic Team Members have proven academic excellence by posting 3.0 or better grade point averages, shooting excellent scores in recent competition (95 percent in trap or skeet, 85 percent in sporting clays, 88 percent in international trap/skeet or 75 seconds or less for SASP) and by demonstrating outstanding community involvement.

Over 180 student-athletes from 21 states have been named to the team this year and will be recognized at the opening ceremonies of the SSSF/SCTP/SASP Team Championship on July 13th in Marengo, OH.

The SSSF is responsible for all aspects of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) across the United States. SCTP and SASP are youth development programs in which adult coaches and other volunteers use shooting sports to teach and to demonstrate sportsmanship, responsibility, honesty, ethics, integrity, teamwork, and other positive life skills. SCTP was developed as a program of the NSSF until the SSSF was created in 2007 to operate the SCTP. In 2012, SSSF created the SASP and became the managing foundation of both programs.
