Eustis Gun Club Youth Trap Shooting
the OFFICIAL youth program of the Amateur Trapshooting Association
Academics Integrity Marksmanship (AIM)

 

Not just a sport but a program to help youth become better Americans. Our coaches are trained to ensure participants maintain their ACADEMIC standing and ensure INTEGRITY through the sport and the daily actions of its youth members. MARKSMANSHIP comes with dedication, practice, and a desire to become better than we are today. 

Members will enjoy the thrill of shooting registered competition on a level playing field as an individual or a team. Our purpose is to provide a safe and positive experience with firearms and registered trap shooting for youth from elementary school through college. We encourage good sportsmanship and personal responsibility through competition while establishing the foundation to make trapshooting a lifelong avocation.


Age categories for new members are based on your age the day you join the ATA. Age categories for renewing members are based on your age as of September 1st of each year. Shooters who become eligible for a new category because of a birthday during the target year may continue to compete in the previous category for the remainder of that target year. Age Groups Include Pre-Sub 11 & Under; Sub-Junior 12-14; Junior 15-17; and Junior Gold 18-22.

Scholarships:  Yearly scholarships will be awarded to eligible members. Scholarships will be given out in Academics, Integrity, and Marksmanship. Additional scholarships may also be available each year. 

The Academics Integrity Marksmanship program is a great way to get your child involved in trap shooting's thrilling and unique lifetime sport. It also is an excellent way for them to learn firearm safety from a certified coach. We instill values and a sense of community responsibility and offer the experience of team competition on a level playing field.


Not only will your athlete enjoy the excitement of registered team competition, but they will also be eligible to be awarded scholarships! In addition, participants can participate in the Grand Championships at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex.

Trapshooting is one of the safest participation sports. It’s safer than soccer, football, and even baseball.

Youth may shoot with the Academics Integrity Marksmanship program and other youth trapshooting programs. We emphasize registered ATA competitions, and if you would like to participate in any other youth shooting programs, you may. Teams can be participants in several programs.

Adult Programs

Eustis Gun Club, Central Florida's Best Outdoor Shooting Range, has amazing adult programs that will keep your skills as sharp as your attire.

Cowboy Action Shooting

Cowboy action shooting (CAS, also known as western action shooting, single action shooting, or cowboy 3-gun) is a competitive shooting sport that originated in Southern California in the early 1980s. Cowboy action shooting is practiced in many places with several sanctioning organizations, including the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS), Western Action Shootists Association (WASA), and National Congress of Old West Shooters (NCOWS), as well as others in the U.S. and other countries. CAS is a type of multi-gun match utilizing a combination of handgun(s), rifle, or shotgun in various "Old West-themed" courses of fire for time and accuracy. Participants must dress in an appropriate theme or era "costume" and use gear and accessories as mandated by the respective sanctioning group rules.

IDPA

The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the governing body of a shooting sport that simulates self-defense scenarios and real-life encounters. It was founded in 1996 as a response to the desires of shooters worldwide. The organization now boasts a membership of more than 20,000, including members in 50 foreign countries. One of the unique facets of this sport is that it is geared toward the new or average shooter yet is fun, challenging, and rewarding for the experienced shooter. The founders developed the sport so practical gear and guns could be used competitively. An interested person can spend a minimal amount on equipment and still be competitive. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of the individual, not equipment or gamesmanship. “Competition only” equipment is not permitted in this sport.

Members and guests interested in participating in the Service Firearms Shoot are welcome and encouraged to join in the fun! * There are two Classes of Service Rifles. Vintage (M1 Garand and older) & Modern (M14 and newer, including AR platform) * Service Pistols will be part of the activity and will be shooting from 25 yards. See details about pistols below. The cost is FREE if you do not shoot in a match and use your targets. If shooting in a match, there is a $5.00 fee for each relay you shoot. The fee covers the cost of targets, awards, and other expenses. However, due to space constraints, paying participants have priority over shooting positions. Mentoring is available! All of us were inexperienced shooters at one time, and even the most experienced shooters look to others for help. Some of our experienced shooters will remain after the shoot to help anyone (including teens and family members) with fundamentals like posture, position, sight alignment, and sight picture, answer any questions, and point out anything that would help.
