We look forward to a long lasting partnership with David and his team." Said Mike Borg.

By joining USAYESS South Carolina Youth Shooting Foundation allows its teams to enjoy all the advantages of belonging to a fast growing national organization. USAYESS affiliates enjoy reduced entry fees to the four USAYESS regional events, and the USAYESS National Championships. In addition, USAYESS offers coach certification and training, team support, endowment funding, and a second to none liability and medical insurance policy.

David Chesnutt President of SCYSF said "We are excited to affiliate with USAYESS. This alliance with a National Organization will allow our state program to grow and get even stronger. We chose USAYESS because of its long time commitment to youth shooting and its policy of allowing all youth shooting organizations to participate in USAYESS events." 

The South Carolina Youth Shooting Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was started to enable youth an opportunity to enjoy the art of clay target shooting. The goal of SCYSF is to allow youth to enjoy the outdoors and to learn safety with firearms, accuracy, and to meet other youth shooters from around the state and now around the nation. The program instills life skills such as respect, ethics, sportsmanship, teamwork, focus, dedication, and commitment to its athletes.

USAYESS is a nonprofit educational association which introduces, grows, supports and educates youth and coaches about the shooting sports and wildlife conservation. The mission of USAYESS is to use hand-on events, competitive shooting sports, wildlife and habitat conservation programs to introduce and educate young people about safe firearm handling and outdoor activities that they and their families can share together for a lifetime.
