For several years the Pacific International Trapshooting Association (PITA) has been developing a Y-E-S program to encourage young people to become active in the shooting sports. Y-E-S is a program focusing on providing young persons with a positive experience in the shooting sports, specifically trapshooting. The program is designed to instill personal values and character traits that include fair play, individual responsibility, and cooperation in working for a common goal, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and personal commitment that can serve them well throughout life.
