“What separates shooting sports from stick-and-ball sports is that
when it’s time for our kids to go to a tournament, all the kids can
compete — heavy, thin, tall, short, fast, slow, boy or girl — it doesn’t
make them any different,” Mr. Wondrash said. “That’s what really lends itself to our sport.”
The SSSF has programs in 42 states and has seen participation grow from about 6,000 students four years ago to 13,000 now, Mr. Wondrash said.
shooting has become so popular and accepted in certain communities that
some high schools award varsity letters for trapshooting. National
organizations like the SSSF
help students assemble teams, train coaches to teach athletes how to
safely fire a gun and organize competitions and championships for teams.
