U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) is excited to announce the expansion of International Air Rifle, Air Pistol, and Sport Pistol disciplines to its youth shooting sports program. With these new additions, the SASP continues to pursue its mission of facilitating youth development through shooting sports. As the official youth feeder program for USA Shooting (USAS), SASP will form a SASP international team and continue to host Junior Olympic Development Camps to help identify athletes who have the potential to become USA Shooting National Team members and ultimately, Olympic champions.
“As the youth feeder program for USAS, adding these new international disciplines expands opportunities for youth athletes with dreams of becoming Olympic athletes,” said Rick Leach, SASP National Director. “With these new disciplines, we anticipate working with additional program sponsors that are focused on supporting youth air gun sports. We look forward to working with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), USAS and other national shooting programs to grow youth shooting sports in the nation.”

About Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation
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. 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.
