High Performance Academy Team Level I




The HP-1 Team welcomes all participants, regardless of age or experience.  All USCTA members will participate at this level, with practices occurring once a week on Saturday. Coaches provide instruction on the fundamentals of shotgun sports focusing on foot position, break points, hold points, focal points, vision, gun mount and movement to the target. Athletes will learn safe gun handling techniques, range etiquette, and firearm care. Competitions will consist of in-state opportunities. The HP-1 Team is an excellent option for young people new to shooting sports or who are involved in several sports but want to transition to more intensive training.


The HP-1 team season runs from October 1, 2017 through April 28, 2018.
