University of Kentucky SPP Announces Dates and Location of Recruitment Demo Day
"The University of Kentucky SCTP Shotgun Team has been a very popular club here with the students," said Daniel Birkenhauer, SCTP/SPP Club Advisor. "We've had a lot of requests for a competitive pistol program so when we heard that the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation created a pistol program based on their SCTP, we knew SPP would be a great fit for us."
The Recruitment Demo Day will begin at 10 am and FREE loaner guns will be made available to participants by SPP Founding Sponsors Glock and Smith & Wesson. Discounted ammunition will be available as well.
"While we enjoy working with all schools, being in the heart of the Southeastern Conference, Glock has a special interest in schools in the SEC" said Ed Fitzgerald, Manager - Special Projects, Glock, Inc. "Kentucky will be a great addition to the growing number of SEC schools. I expect the SEC schools to be a powerhouse in SPP as they are in football."
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.
