Bill Perkins is a Regional Field Representative for the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF), the leader in youth development shooting sports programs.

Through a variety of fun, team-based shooting tournaments in both our Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP), we provide student athletes aged elementary through college with a supportive environment where shooting sports serve as catalysts for teaching life lessons and skills that emphasize positive character traits and citizenship values. Throughout all training, practice and competitions, we continue to instill in our participants a commitment to safe firearm handling, teamwork and leadership.
