The Scholastic Action Shooting Program focuses on team-based shooting sports that instills personal values and character traits for fair play, compassionate understanding, individual responsibility, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and personal commitment. As the sport itself, these qualities will stay with them throughout their lifetimes, helping each young athlete reach his or her full potential. The SASP is proud to provide a youth program in which athletes from grade school through college can compete and grow in a sport where there is no such thing as being “benched”. Nearly all shooting sports offer a level playing field where success can be achieved without respect to gender or athletic ability that often drives traditional “ball sports”. 

With youth teams established throughout the nation, the SASP allows for a year-round season, culminating at the National Championship each July. This 10-day event sees thousands of young athletes join their team to see who comes out on top as season champions. Since 2019, the SASP National Championship is the largest action shooting event in the world, a title previously held by Glock’s GSSF.

Athletes in the SASP may compete in action shooting and/or precision events. The exciting world of Action Shooting allows for awe-inspiring stage runs using .22 rifles, .22 handguns, pistol caliber carbines (PCC), and/or centerfire handguns. SASP athletes also compete in precision events, identical to the Olympic international disciplines of the 10 Meter Air Rifle, 10 Meter Air Pistol and Sport Pistol. As the official youth feeder program for USA Shooting, youth athletes turn to the SASP as a path to achieve Olympic dreams. Behind each shooter both figuratively and literally, you will see a supportive group of coaches, teammates, and families cheering them on. Like other youth sports, adult volunteers typically serve as head coach or other supporting roles.
