Y-E-S

Pacific International Trapshooting Association Youth Education Shooting Program.

Philosophy and Introduction

Welcome

 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.  

COLLABORATION & Contacts

Collaboration

 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.”
