Arizona Youth Trapshooting Association


The Arizona Youth Shooting Program started as the result of an offer from Phil and Nate Simms of Pro-Soft Recoil Systems to donate a custom gun stock for raffle at the Autumn Satellite Grand.  Fred Frazier, long time trap shooter who has used the Pro-Soft stock on his personal firearm, accepted the offer, and ran with the duties.  The efforts by Fred and his wife Jane resulted in many other items donated for inclusion in the auction.  Ticket sales and donated money resulted in an account that was funded in excess of $18,000.00.


The Arizona Youth Trapshooting Association has a Board that will oversee the program. 

Fred Frazier (Chairman), Doug Sims, Tom Strunk, Lee Bachman, Nate Simms, Phil Simms comprise the oversight committee. 

A decision was made to use the umbrella of the Tucson Trap and Skeet Club 501-C-3 tax exempt status to administer the banking of the donated funds.  The Tucson club was kind enough to set up an account for the Arizona Youth Shooting Association in a different banking institution to assure the account would be completely separate from that of TTSC. This arrangement minimized the expenses of the project, and allowed the funds to be maximized for the program.

Use of Funds

The funds will be used to generate enthusiasm and participation for Junior and Sub-Junior shooters for ATA registered tournaments.

The first offer by the program is to offer all Arizona Resident Junior and Sub-Junior ATA participants one half price for all entry fees at ATA Registered tournaments during the 2012 target year, or until funds are depleted.

Requested of Arizona Registered Trap Clubs

A form is attached for use to reimburse the host shooting club for the one-half cost of the target fees. (Exclusive of ATA/ASTA Daily Fees)  The committee recognizes that the shooting clubs must stay financially whole.  This funding will be reimbursed following receipt of an invoice, submitted by completing the attached shooting report.
