The Old Colony Young Marines is proud to announce its partnership with the Scholastic Action Shooting Program. Members of the Old Colony Young Marines will now be eligible to join our Shooting Team. The shooting team will be using rim-fire rifle/pistol and center fire pistols. This is a competitive team that will travel for matches and practice outside of normal drill hours.
The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is the national governing body for the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP), offering youth from grade school through college the opportunity to safely participate in our exciting team-based action shooting sports!
SASP is designed to instill in young people a set of personal values and character traits for fair play, compassionate understanding, individual responsibility, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and personal commitment. As the sport itself, these qualities will stay with them throughout their lifetimes, helping each young athlete reach his or her full potential.
• Youth may participate using .22 rifles, .22 handguns and/or centerfire handguns.
• Targets are steel circle or rectangular plates.
• All courses of fire are timed events.
