The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) hosted its third annual Advisor Academy this past September in Milwaukee, WI. Fifty-one key leaders from 19 states attended the two-day meeting that focused on developing state and local level leadership, sharing best practices, as well as providing input to the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) from the grass roots level.

“It was inspiring to see how dedicated SSSF is to youth shooting and I’m proud to be involved in this year’s academy, said Steve McClure, shooting sports coordinator with the Arizona Game and Fish Department. “I left with some great takeaways about our SCTP program and look forward to what comes next.”

“State advisors are the key leaders with our volunteer coaches all across the country,” said Ben Berka, president and executive director of the SSSF. “Advisor Academy is a perennial opportunity for our state and national leaders to gather in order to evaluate our progress and continue setting our course to put more youth into organized and safe shooting sports programs across the country.”

In addition to SSSF, SCTP and SASP national staff and state leaders, this year’s Advisor Academy featured guest presentations from Friends of NRA, MidwayUSA Foundation, the National Rifle Association, Positive Coaching Alliance and Sportsman’s Insurance Agency during the general session.
