Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation Announces New Scholastic Pistol Program
SPP is organized based on age, Junior Division (ages 12-16), Senior Division (ages 17-20) and Collegiate Division (no age limit, must be full time student).
The basic competitive unit for SPP is a four person squad; each squad shoots four (4) "stages". In SPP competition, your time is your score, calculated in conjunction with the number of misses. Total score for all stages will determine the shooters "match" score. The combined scores of the four shooters become the squad's match score.
SPP is based on production center fire handguns (9mm) firing at steel plate targets and offers an introduction to a lifetime sport that family members can enjoy together. This new program will be a welcome addition to the SSSF family. SPP Director, Scott Moore will manage the program with assistance from Tammy Mowry. Scott has many years of experience in the shooting industry and specifically the handgun sports.
"We are excited to add this new program to the SSSF and to be able to offer yet another shooting sport opportunity to our existing and future members," said SSSF Executive Director, Dan Hathaway. SSSF Board of Trustees Chair, Louise Terry indicated that "the SPP is a wonderful additional program that will run in parallel with the SCTP under the auspices of the SSSF, and will extend our Foundation's ability to serve our mission of introducing more young people to the shooting sports in a team based environment".
