The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is kicking off a new membership campaign titled “Vision 20/20”. The emphasis of the campaign is to swell the ranks of youth membership in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) to over 20,000 children and young adults annually by the year 2020.

“Achieving Vision 20/20 will require many coordinated efforts between our board, staff, state and local leaders as well as our partners in the industry” said Ben Berka, executive director for the SSSF. “In addition to these efforts, Vision 20/20 will require donations from local team supporters and many others who believe in providing youth development through the shooting sports.”

As part of the Vision 20/20 campaign, SCTP and SASP member teams are being invited to participate in a special fundraising effort to provide support to existing teams, and additionally provide SSSF with the support required to recruit new teams—where none exist today.

Current annual youth membership for the SCTP and SASP is nearly 15,000 student-athletes being led by more than 3,000 responsible, adult-volunteer coaches all across the country. Through organized shooting teams, these youths are provided with firearms education, valuable life skills and the opportunity to practice and compete in the clay target and action shooting sports at all levels. SCTP and SASP teams help young families develop a “shooting sports lifestyle,” giving kids the opportunity to participate in organized programs, from elementary school through college.
