The Youth Shooting Sports Association is hosting the 2015 season kick off meeting to discuss their 2015 season and plans. YSSA provides area youth the opportunity to get involved in the exiting disciplines of shotgun shooting in trap, skeet, sporting clays, and 5-stand, pistol shooting in steel target speed shooting, archery in basic bow shooting skills, and air rifle in the basics of rifle shooting. Youth will learn safe shotgun, handgun, rifle, and bow handling techniques through regular practices and competitions.

An informational meeting and sign-up is being held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at Bi-State Sportsman’s Association (571 Cleveland Road, Colona, IL 61241). Youth between the ages of 8 and 23 who may be interested in an exciting sport that has few physical boundaries, and where there is a real opportunity to excel, should attend this informational meeting. Adults are also encouraged to attend to learn more about our volunteer coaching staff through YSSA.

Youth Shooting Sports Association believes that it is very important to train the younger generation in safe, ethical uses of firearms. Through our exciting, nationally recognized programs, highly trained and insured coaches, YSSA will guide youth step by step through the fundamentals of safe gun and bow handling, marksmanship, equipment care and cleaning, and the opportunity to compete in nationally accredited amateur competitions.
