Youth Education Shooting (YES)

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.  If you would like more information or want to assist with this program please contact a member of the committee.

Scholarships are funded by tax-deductible donations.  Click here for more information.

Trapshooting scholarships are awarded at some State Shoots and at the Grand Pacific.  Junior and Sub-Junior shooters earning a place on the PITA Allstar teams are also awarded scholarships.  Allstar qualifications are found in the PITA Rulebook, page 3.  Any questions about Allstar requirements should be directed to the PITA office 208-312-0314.

To claim earned scholarships contact President Melanie Foster.
