TEAM GLOCK’S Shane COley PRO SHOOTING SIGNATURE AUCTION

In collaboration with Founding Partner Sponsor, GLOCK, and Silver Sponsor, Baron Engraving, the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) is proud to auction the Shane Coley Pro Shooting Signature Glock 34. Industry-supported since its inception, the SASP provides youth development opportunities through team-based shooting sports and its National Championship has grown to be the largest action shooting event in the world.

Passionately supporting the SASP, Baron Engraving has created a highly collectible firearm with polished slide and 24kt details, including signature supplied by Shane Coley. All the proceeds from this firearm go to support the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) with a portion of the proceeds going into the SASP Scholarship Endowment to provide future college scholarships to athletes in the program. These scholarships are awarded to graduating high school senior action shooting athletes as they continue their education in college. 

Together, with the support of GLOCK, pro shooter Shane Coley, and Baron Engraving the Scholastic Action Shooting Program is auctioning this work of art to benefit the future of youth shooting sports across the country.

The 2019 Scholastic Action Shooting Program 2019 National Championships became the Largest Action Shooting Match in History

65 SASP teams from over 20 states from as far away as Washington State traveled with their Youth Athletes, Coaches, Volunteers, and Parents all came together at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio for what proved to be a “Record Breaking” 2019 SASP National Championship.

 With over 1,650 entries, this years SASP National Championship surpassed Glock Shooting Sports Foundation to become the largest Action Shooting Match in history. SASP founding sponsors Glock, Ruger, CZ USA, and Action Target were all in attendance to be a part of this historic milestone. Over 250,000 shots were fired at the 2019 National Championship competitions.
 
Congratulations to all our 2019 SASP National Championship Individual and team winners. Many teams came to the Cardinal Center to defend their previous titles and left holding the “top spots” again for 2019. Still, many of this year’s individual and team winners were on the podium for the first time. It was easy to see that all our SASP teams had worked hard all year to get ready for the intense competition that is always a part of the SASP National Championships.
 

Our thanks to all our safety officer volunteers who put in over 1000 combined hours in the 90 plus degree heat and humidity. And our thanks to the staff at the Cardinal Center for their support.
 
For everyone involved it was an amazing week and it’s time to start planning for our next record setting National Championship event, July 11-18, 2020!

Athletes attending the National Championships (representing their state as an All-State Team member) will receive a custom shirt signifying their All-State Team designation!

Guidelines:

Top two athletes will be determined by the actual times shot for each discipline at their respective State SASP match.

Times at the National Championships will be used from the athlete’s normal squadding with his or her team. Any ties will be broken as per the handbook and listed about using In and Out or V for V stage.

GLOCK – Founding Partner of Scholastic Action Shooting Program

GLOCK logoGLOCK, a Founding Partner of the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP), has been with the program since the beginning.

“Thank you so much for your continued support of the SASP,” Tammy Mowry,” national program director for the SASP, said.  “GLOCK is a leading global manufacturer of firearms and realizes the importance of youth being involved in the SASP program. Its dedication to our program speaks volumes.”

Ed Fitzgerald, GLOCK advertising manager, said, “As a founding partner of the Scholastic Action Shooting Program, GLOCK has thrown its full support towards helping create a competitive shooting discipline that can build positive experiences for young men and women that will last a lifetime.  With more and more schools adopting Competitive Shooting in both rifle and pistol disciplines, adult mentorship and student involvement is at record highs.  We salute the youth and adult leaders who are attending the National Championships for 2017.”

Coley Holding Court

Shane Coley
For those shooting in the Scholastic Pistol Program Nationals this week, program sponsor and firearms maker Glock brought in one of its big guns – Shane Coley.

Fresh from a six-year stint in the U.S. Army where he served with the famed U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, Shane joined Team Glock earlier this summer taking on the role of team captain.

This week the 24 year old Mississippi native is working the pistol match helping the young shooters and along the way hopefully shedding some light on the secret ways of going fast for those looking to post personal records on the pistol ranges of the World Shooting & Recreational Complex here in Sparta, Illinois.

One secret Shane shared was on the subject of math, which probably wasn’t what most of the young shooters expected, or wanted now that school is out. But it is understanding the timing on each individual component of a shooting run and how they add up that he stressed. As well as the importance of working with an electronic shot timer.

For the parents watching Team Glock’s new top gun the questions during his morning seminar focused on reloading ammunition and whether or not an up and coming young shooter can make a living in the sport.

For Shane Coley the answer to that question is most definitely ‘Yes.’
