Columbus, OH -(AmmoLand.com)- The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is kicking off a new membership campaign titled “Vision 20/20”.

The emphasis of the campaign is to swell the ranks of youth membership in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) to over 20,000 children and young adults annually by the year 2020.

“Achieving Vision 20/20 will require many coordinated efforts between our board, staff, state and local leaders as well as our partners in the industry,” said Ben Berka, executive director for the SSSF. “In addition to these efforts, Vision 20/20 will require donations from local team supporters and many others who believe in providing youth development through the shooting sports.”

As part of the Vision 20/20 campaign, SCTP and SASP member teams are being invited to participate in a special fundraising effort to provide support to existing teams AND provide SSSF and its programs with the support required to recruit new teams where none exist today. Others wishing to contribute to this worthy cause can make a tax-deductible donation online at www.sssfonline.org/vision2020.

Current annual youth membership for the SCTP and SASP is nearly 15,000 student athletes being led by more than 3,000 responsible, adult-volunteer coaches all across the country. Through organized shooting teams, these young guns are provided with firearms education, valuable life skills and the opportunity to practice and compete in the clay target and action shooting sports at the local, state, regional and national levels! SCTP and SASP teams help young families develop a “shooting sports lifestyle” giving kids opportunity to participate in organized programs from elementary school through college and creates pathways to continue shooting well beyond their scholastic careers.

About the SSSF:

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is responsible for all aspects of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) across the United States. SCTP and SASP are youth development programs in which adult coaches and other volunteers use shooting sports to teach and to demonstrate sportsmanship, responsibility, honesty, ethics, integrity, teamwork, and other positive life skills. SCTP was developed as a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) until the SSSF was created in 2007 to operate the SCTP. In 2012, SSSF created the SASP and became the managing foundation of both programs.
