The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation recently announced that Wayne Rasmussen will serve as the new national director of the Scholastic Clay Target Program.

Rasmussen was selected to lead the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s youth development program with more than 13 years of experience in youth shooting sports as a parent, coach and state advisor.

“My involvement with the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation began when my daughters competed in both the clay target and action shooting programs,” Rasmussen said. “My passion for growing youth shooting sports participation rests in the belief that the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s youth development programs instill good sportsmanship, competitiveness, cooperation, teamwork and high moral character.”

Rasmussen looks forward to building on the strong foundation already in place at SSSF and growing the Scholastic Clay Target Program across the country.

“I believe there is great potential for growth in youth shooting sports,” he said. “Having a program that encourages athletes, trains coaches and builds lasting partnerships with industry leaders is key to the continued success of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation, Scholastic Clay Target Program and Scholastic Action Shooting Program.”

With Rasmussen’s experience in running large-scale shooting sports events, leading coach certification trainings and systems management, the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation is excited for him to take the helm. His previous involvement ranges from introducing new athletes to the sport, all the way to coaching seasoned athletes in Olympic disciplines. His leadership will propel the Scholastic Clay Target Program and the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation as a whole into the 2024 shooting sports season.

“We were fortunate to have more than 50 applicants for our SSSF position,” Rick Leach, president and executive director of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation said. “We interviewed six and Wayne’s passion for youth shooting sports shined through. We are very excited for Wayne to join our staff and continue to improve and grow our program.”
