In the upcoming 2014 edition of GLOCK AUTOPISTOLS, author Andre’ M. Dall’au writes, “The recently created Scholastic Pistol Program (SPP) and the renowned Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) are operated by the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF.) The SSSF is an educational-athletic organization that provides school-age team firearm sporting competition that strongly emphasizes safety and personal growth.

“The recently formed SPP has grown to include 60 teams that compete nationwide with both rimfire and centerfire service pistols. Organizations already involved and fielding pistol teams include the Boy Scouts of America, 4-H, Young Marines and Florida Sheriff ’s Explorer Association, which recently hosted a well-attended state championship in Fort Pierce, Florida. Each SPP team consists of one or more squads, with a minimum of four students per squad. There are three competitive divisions: Junior (ages 12 to 16), Senior (ages 17 to 20) and Collegiate (whose participants must be full-time students). Every shooter is required to shoot five strings in four individual stages, and scoring is based on both speed and accuracy.”
