USA Youth Education in Shooting Sports is dedicated to growing competitive youth shooting teams primarily through partnerships with Key Conservation Groups as well as local, state, regional and national competitive youth shooting organizations. We believe that today’s youth are the caretakers of the future. Therefore it is important that young adults and their families are exposed to and develop an understanding of responsibility to the outdoors. USAYESS provides events which showcase safety of equipment and outdoor activities in a fun filled atmosphere.
