Welcome to the Official Home of the Prescott Bird Busters

trapshooting-large11.jpgThe Prescott Bird Busters, sponsored by the Prescott Trap and Skeet Club, is a Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP).  SCTP is a team-based youth development program that uses the shotgun sports to instill discipline, safety, teamwork, ethics, self-confidence and other life values. Team members can participate in any or all three of the clay target disciplines: trap, skeet and sporting clays.

SCTP was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) in conjunction with the firearms industry and shotgun shooting governing bodies and is now nationally governed by the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (S3F) to provide team participation to youth in the shotgun shooting sports.

The Prescott Bird Busters operates under the guidance and support of the Arizona Game and Fish Department.  We invites students from age 9 though graduation of high school to participate in our program where we learn about firearms, safety, and teamwork in a secure environment provided by certified shotgun coaches.

Participants can enjoy our recreational environment or heighten their experience by competing in a variety of events from Fun Shoots to State and National Championships.

Shooting Season
The season runs from October 1 through May 1.  Those teams who win the state championships at the end of the season are then eligible to participate in the National Championships during the summer.  International shoots and competitions for those desiring to participate in our international sports are held at the conclusion of the season.

Joining The Team:
All young people, age 9 though 12th grade are welcome to participate in four divisions: Rookie, Intermediate, Junior Varsity, and Varsity.  In addition Collegiate athletes have now been added to the program.  Individuals are encouraged to please contact Shelly Geiger, Assistant Head Coach of Prescott Bird Busters at prescottbirdbusters@gmail.com, or contact the the Arizona Game and Fish Department directly for information in finding a team in your area.

Practices:
Practices begin each fall and continue though spring. Coaches are volunteers who are certified by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. They are responsible for organizing club activities and practices, and for teaching team members how to safely operate a firearm, and the basic rules and fundamentals of the shooting disciplines: Trap, Skeet, and Sporting Clays.

Becoming a Team Volunteer or Coach
Volunteers and Coaches must be at least 18 years of age and complete an Arizona Game and Fish Department approved Shotgun Coach Course and approved background check.

To inquire about certification please contact Brian Witty, Head Coach of Prescott Bird Busters at prescottbirdbusters@gmail.com or contact the Shooting Sports Coordinator of the Arizona Game and Fish Department directly.
