The Scholastic Action Shooting Program is part of SSSF, the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation. SASP Steel shooting is centered around 4 courses of fire, shot from a static position, under the supervision of the Range Officer. The shooter's performance is based on the time he or she has taken to shoot all targets, with misses resulting in time penalties.

HOW MUCH DOES THIS ALL COST?
New team members are required to pay a one-time joining fee of $200. This joining fee includes the cost of the team jersey, practice t-shirt, first year entry into SASP and NRA Basic Pistol Training and materials. Shooters provide their own ammunition, but discounted ammunition can be purchased at our cost at all practices.
There are no monthly club dues, however shooters are expected to pay their way on the team through community service. In exchange for the community service, Lone Star Shooters has arranged for sponsors, through donations to cover individual fees for range time, team firearms, targets and general team expenses. These sponsorships averaged over $1,700 per shooter last year.... and are 100% FREE to Lone Star Shooter youth who complete their community service requirements.
Each team member is required to perform at least 10 hours of community service per quarter to remain on the team (most serve much more). These service hours can be performed as a team, through your church or through a youth service organization like Boy Scouts, Trail Life USA, American Heritage Girls, Girl Scouts or 4H.
