Volunteers Needed at College Nationals

The Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) is expecting a record turnout at the 2018 College National Championships at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama. The match is scheduled for March 10-11, 2018 and we need your help!

We are looking for half day commitments to serve the roles of Safety Officers (SO) and scorekeepers. Working a match is a great way to learn more about the Scholastic Action Shooting Program! Also, for each half day worked you will be eligible for a random drawing for some great prizes!

If you have never worked on an action shooting range before, please view our YouTube video outlining the safety rules, standardized range commands and responsibilities and our video on using Practiscore for SASP data entry.

Additional training will be provided on-site for those new to action shooting. Volunteers must be at least 18 to work as safety officers.

Go to our Signup Genius link to view times and locations where help is currently needed.  Additional information will be shared with those signing up.

New Background Check Policies Being Implemented for SSSF Adult Volunteers

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation is implementing some changes in how the organization conducts background checks on participating volunteers. Individuals registering with the SSSF as a volunteer (i.e., head coach, assistant coach, or other adult volunteer) must now conduct a secure background check that includes local county checks for a seven-year address history.

In the past, SSSF has conducted checks only with the National Criminal Database (NCD). However, due to the variability of information across states, the NCD may or may not reveal all pertinent criminal history concerning eligibility of a volunteer. Thus, the new county-level background check will be used in addition to the national check.

With the changes in screening comes a price increase. Starting December 12, 2014 volunteers will be required to pay a portion of the cost directly to our background check provider, Intellicorp, when they submit to a check. Volunteer fees paid to SSSF will remain at $30. SSSF volunteer registration is not considered complete until background checks are completed.

The SSSF wants to ensure it upholds the highest standards in youth protection on behalf of its programs and young athletes. The SSSF also must ensure that all of its volunteers are screened with the same level of background check, regardless of their state of residence or past residence history.
