Philosophy and Introduction

For several years the Pacific International Trapshooting Association (PITA) has been developing a Y-E-S program to encourage young people to become active in the shooting sports. Y-E-S is a program focusing on providing young persons with a positive experience in the shooting sports, specifically trapshooting.  The program is designed to instill personal values and character traits that include fair play, individual responsibility, and cooperation in working for a common goal, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and personal commitment that can serve them well throughout life.

In past years State and Provincial Associations have been encouraged to include a youth shooting competition as part of their championship events. The Y-E-S program has been a centerpiece at the Grand Pacific for a number of years. Youth shooters have been recognized, a silent auction has been held as a fundraiser, and special events have been scheduled providing merchandise and awards. Individuals and teams have competed for scholarships and “bragging rights.”
