Scholastic Pistol Program (SPP) Announces Dates and Location of NE Fall Regional Championship Match
"This will be our first Regional Championship Match since our hugely successful launch in July", said Scott Moore, Director of the SPP. "We have schools from not only the Northeast but as far away as Texas with the Aggie Corps of Cadets from Texas A&M planning on attending. SPP continues to grow in all 3 divisions and we are now scheduling regionals around the country to keep up with the demand."
"As one of the founding partners of the Scholastic Pistol Program we know the value of such a program in building the future of the Shooting Sports", said Paul Pluff, Smith & Wesson Director of Marketing Communications. "It is my belief that SPP will become the premier youth handgun competition in the country and we are proud to be not only a sponsor but a partner in this great program."
The SPP provides the opportunity for young adults to participate in the exciting and challenging family sport of "speed shooting" in a safe and supportive environment taught by trained and dedicated adult coaches who are focused on teaching the safe handling and firing of handguns.
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). SPP is based on production center fire handguns firing at steel plate targets and offers an introduction to a lifetime sport that family members can enjoy together.
