Capital City Young Guns (CCYG) was created to teach youth how to shoot clay targets for recreation or competition. Instruction is available for Sporting Clays, 5-Stand, Skeet and Trap. Each discipline of target shooting is different and requires an understanding of each sport as each sport has its own rules and protocols. CCYG was created in 2015 and became a 501-c-3 tax exempt nonprofit in 2017.
CCYG provides an avenue for youth to participate in shot gunning sports by providing the education and materials necessary for safe, enjoyable, and successful experiences. CCYG provides instruction, ammunition, targets and shotguns for use while going through the program.
As the program grows and funding is increased it is hoped that costs for entrance fees, ammunition, carts and travel can be subsidized for qualifying youth who compete in state, regional and national competitive events.
