SASP welcomes two new Wisconsin State Advisors – Curt Kowalczyk and Jeff Haupt.
Kowalczyk started shooting at a very young age. His father was an avid trap and skeet shooter who taught him and his brother about firearm safety and shooting. He also started shooting air rifles for the Jaycee’s when he was 10 years old and shot with the organization for many years at tournaments around Wisconsin and the Midwest. Kowalczyk continued to shoot trap and skeet and added sporting clays when he became an adult. He also started shooting pistols and shot Bullseye league and PPC and added action pistol shooting six years ago.
He is a certified NRA pistol coach and an assistant coach on the Union Grove Bronco Shooting Club’s SASP pistol and rifle team for three years. Kowalczyk enjoys coaching and mentoring the athletes. He has three sons and his two younger sons are involved with SASP and the oldest was involved with SCTP and is in the navy now. Kowalczyk looks forward to continuing coaching and is very excited to help spread the great benefits of the SASP.
Haupt is an avid hunter and archer who also enjoys Great Lakes fishing and shooting trap league. He is a member of the Kenosha Bowmen and Wisconsin Sportsmens Association. Haupt became interested in pistol when his children joined the school shooting club. He then became an assistant pistol/rifle coach for the UGES shooting team.
Through this he developed a determination to teach, educate and promote the shooting sport to both young people and their parents. He looks forward creating opportunities for today’s youth.
