The National Skeet Shooting Association, Cross Creek Skeet Association, and Fort Bragg Clay Target Center invite all Sub-Junior, Junior and Collegiate shooters to participate in the 2019 Junior World Skeet Championships. The NSSA Junior World is a special event for our youth shooters to take part in their own championship event. The NSSA’s three youth categories are Sub-Junior, any person who has not reached their fourteenth birthday; Junior, any person who has not reached their eighteenth birthday; and Collegiate, a fulltime undergraduate student in an accredited degree-oriented learning institution. Parents and coaches are also welcome to shoot at the event, but preference is given to the youth participants.
The Junior World is an important shoot to our youth concurrent shooters vying for All-American teams, as many All-American points are awarded at this event. However, those not interested in All-American status need not be deterred, as the Junior World is a great way to venture to a new club, meet new people, and make lifelong friends. The Junior World is also a special event because of the age divisions, allowing those of a similar skill level to compete against each other.
While the Junior World program includes multiple gauges, it is not required to compete in all the events. It is perfectly acceptable to sign up for just the 12-gauge event if that is all you wish to compete in. While Fort Bragg has 12 skeet fields, it is important to pre-register so shoot management can plan and make all the necessary arrangements for a successful shoot.
Looking for more to do than shoot while heading to Fort Bragg? Fort Bragg Clay Target Center is located at 651 East Manchester Road, in the town of Spring Lake, in the Sandhills Region of North Carolina. The Sandhills of North Carolina has plenty to offer any family that comes to visit. The military history of Fort Bragg, the Airborne-Special Operations Museum, revitalized downtown Fayetteville, local towns with numerous antique shops, nearby world-class golf courses and so much more make this a very special place. Additionally, North Carolina beaches are only two hours away, and the North Carolina mountains are approximately four hours away.
I can promise you much work has already been put into making the 2019 Junior World a huge success, and much more effort will take place over the next few months to make the 2019 event very special. Registration opened on April 1, so if you haven’t already, make sure to complete your pre-registration form and mail to Cross Creek Skeet Association, Jim Tiner, 2141 Pridgeonfarm Road, Fayetteville, NC 28306.
Pre-registration form, hotel and general information can all be found on the Junior World page at bit.ly/JrWorld.
