New signup process for 2014 (Grades 6-12)

UPDATE – October 15, 2014 – we are about a month into the signup process and it looks like we are about half full. Don’t delay…get your paperwork in now.  

In an effort to have our athletes practice and compete together as a unit, we are asking our athletes to make their competitive intentions known prior to signup.  I know it’s early to start thinking about the 2014 competitions, but we really need to do this so we can kick off our registration process and begin grouping our athletes who would like to attend competitions together.  Does this mean you must participate in competitions to be on the team?  NO… as space permits, we will continue to accept participants who are only looking to attend our practices and work on their shooting skills.

So here is how it’s going to work.  Each discipline/division is going to be treated individually. Athletes will have the opportunity to sign up for Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays, and/or Olympic Trap. For each discipline/division an athlete signs up for, athletes will be expected to attend every practice in that discipline/division unless you are ill, or have made prior arrangements with your coach.  If you’re not committed to attending practice, please do not sign up.  Exceptions to the practice requirement will be reviewed on case-by-case basis; however the request must be submitted with your Interest Form.

In addition, for each discipline/division, athletes will be asked to declare whether or not they will be attending that discipline/division National and/or State Championship.  Priority will be give to athletes who commit to attending our National and/or State Championship. Signups for athletes who commit to attending our National and/or State Championship will begin on September 15, 2013 and run through November 30, 2013. Any openings remaining after November 30, 2013 will be filled on a first come first served basis. If you have any questions please call 717-235-0743.

Openings will be filled for each discipline/division in the following order:

  • Returning Team Member attending the SCTP American Team National and a PA SCTP Championship
  • New Team Member attending the SCTP American Team National and a PA SCTP Championship
  • Returning Team Member attending a SCTP PA SCTP Championship
  • New Team Member attending the SCTP PA SCTP Championship
  • New Team Member attending Practice Only
  • Returning Team Member attending Practice Only

As you will see in the information listed below, we have decreased the number of athletes in each discipline/division.  Our hope is to have fewer, more committed participants this year.  This will allow us to dedicate our limited recourses toward the people who value it the most.
