Amateur Trap Association

Amateur Trapshooting Association





For youth not already associated with another group, and/or interested specifically in trapshooting opportunities, YSSA offers programs and competitive shooting opportunities through the Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA). ATA is the largest clay target shooting organization in the world, and acts as the governing body for the sport’s rules and regulations. AIM (Academics Integrity Marksmanship) is the “Official” youth program of ATA. Members of AIM enjoy the thrill of shooting registered competitions on a level playing field as an individual and/or a team. The purpose of AIM is to provide a safe and positive experience with firearms and registered trapshooting for youth, elementary school through college age. AIM encourages good sportsmanship and personal responsibility through competition while establishing a foundation to make trapshooting a lifelong avocation. and
