MS Scholastic Shooting Program

The Mississippi Scholastic Shooting Program (MSSP) is a team-based, youth development program that uses the shotgun sports of 5-Stand, Skeet, and Sporting Clays to instill life skills such as discipline, safety, teamwork, ethics, self-confidence, and other life values.  The program utilizes these disciplines to teach hunting skills through the safe use of hunting equipment, including firearms, and their relationship to hunting situations.  Team members can participate in any or all three of the clay target disciplines: 5-Stand, Skeet, and Sporting Clays.

The MSSP is not designed to compete with 4-H or other youth-based organizations but should compliment it in schools.  The MSSP will provide youth an opportunity to compete for their school in a scholastic shooting sports program.
