Glock has been a Founding Partner Sponsor of the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) since it formed in 2012 and has continued that tradition in 2021. The famed firearm manufacturer remains dedicated to supporting the SASP’s mission of youth development in shooting sports, even when faced with hurdles presented by COVID-19.

“We are coming out of some interesting dynamics from a worldwide pandemic and getting back to doing business the best way we can,” said Glock Advertising Manager Ed Fitzgerald.

“There are challenges now and there will be challenges ahead, but Glock applauds the young women and young men and their supportive families emerging from this chaos to come together at the Cardinal Center to compete in at the SASP National Championships in July. May that competitive spirit burn an understanding of what it takes to become better when opportunities are scarce and resources are scarcer. This breeds a stronger spirit, the true heart of a competitor.”

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation is the 501(c)3 organization that manages both the SASP and the Scholastic Clay Target Program. Adult coaches and volunteers in both efforts teach sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity, safety, positive life skills and much more. SASP will holds its 2021 National Championship at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Ohio.

“Glock’s support of the SASP is second to none,” stated SASP National Director, Rick Leach. “We are fortunate to consistently retain our sponsors from year to year and continue gaining new ones each season. However, the support of Glock is unmatched. Between their Founding Partner Sponsor-level support, providing discounts to our athletes, helping us secure venue space for our Collegiate National Championships, and so much more. We are so proud and humbled to have the unwavering support of Glock and attribute much of our success to their dedication to our youth shooting sports program.”
