USA -(Ammoland.com)- Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) coaches and athletes are invited to apply for a very special camp this summer focused on learning the fun and challenging clay target disciplines of international (i.e. “bunker”) trap, international doubles trap and international skeet.
The 2017 Junior Olympic Development Camp (JODC) will take place in Colorado Springs, CO at the Olympic Training Center and USA Shooting’s International Shotgun Range at Fort Carson– training grounds for USA’s Olympic shooting athletes!
The purpose of the JODC camp is twofold:
1. To assist U.S.A. Shooting in its pursuit of identifying SCTP Athletes who have the potential to become U.S.A. Shooting Team members and, ultimately, Olympic champions;
2. To provide SCTP Coaches and State Advisors with increased knowledge and skills in order to become more effective in working with SCTP Athletes.
The U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Shooting have confirmed August 7-13, 2017 for the camp with coaches attending all days and athletes attending August 9 – 13.
Interested coaches and athletes must apply and be selected for the camp. SCTP will be accepting up to 24 athletes and up to 10 coaches for the camp.
For complete camp details, please review the information sheet and application forms on the SCTP Forms and Handbook section on their website.
The deadline for receiving all completed application packages is May 25th, 2017.

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is 501(c)(3) public charity 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.

In 2012, SSSF created the SASP and became the managing foundation of both programs.
