 About Craig Hancock:

Coach Hancock is a former shooter himself and gave it up to train his son, 3x World Champion and 2x Olympic Gold Medalist, Vincent Hancock, when Vincent decided at age 12 that he wanted to win the Olympics. Craig has since trained many junior students who have climbed the ladder of success, many of which have either made the US National Team, US Junior National Team, or the US National Junior Development Team, some of which hold National and World Records.
Coach Hancock continuously studies and researches many aspects of mental and physical conditioning as he strives for excellence in order to teach his athletes to be the best theycan be.

This tournament is held in one of the nation's most highly regarded tourist area due to its proximity to Yellowstone Natioanl Park, Jackson Hole, the Buffalo Bill Museum, Red Lodge, nightly street gun fights, Rodeos every night, river rafting, and much, much more...

South St. Paul Rod and Gun Club 

S. St. Paul, MN

USAYESS in Partnership with YESS4MN reports on their inaugural USAYESS Youth Outdoor Experience (Y.O.E.) in South St. Paul, MN

USAYESS in partnership with YESS4MN (Youth Education in Shooting Sports for Minnesota) held its first annual Y.O.E. Youth Outdoor Experience event this past weekend, Saturday, April 26th and Sunday April 27th at the South St. Paul Rod & Gun Club in South St. Paul, Minnesota and had a great turnout. Despite inclement weather, 331 athletes and 49 teams, including 24 new teams, showed up to participate in the event.

Over $350,000.00 in Midway USA Foundation endowment funds were awarded to participating youth shooting teams.

“There are a lot of people I need to thank for the success of this first Youth Outdoor Experience,” said Cal Munkvold, President of Youth Education in Shooting Sports for Minnesota, (YESSN). “First off I want to thank Jeff McClure and Larry and Brenda Potterfield of the Midway USA Foundation who have been so vital to the development, progression and especially the funding of youth shooting sports across the nation. I’d like to thank Mike Borg with USAYESS. Mike is a true leader in the development of youth shooting sports and the education of youth in wildlife conservation on a local, state, and national level. Thanks to USA Shooting Team members, Nick Boerboon and Morgan Craft who demonstrated to these athletes the level of expertise they’ve developed through years of practice and hard work and shared their experiences as to what it’s like to represent the United States and compete all over the world in shooting sports. I want to thank all the vendors who came out and educated the participants on youth shooting and wildlife conservation. A very special thank you goes out to all the volunteers who ran the tournament and set up the event. They’re the unsung heroes who put in countless hours of preparation behind the scenes and kept the tournament running smoothly. Last but not least, I want to thank all the coaches and parents who have dedicated themselves to making youth shooting sports a positive and exciting experience in these athletes’ lives through coaching, time commitments, and financial support. Without their example and encouragement on a day to day basis, none of this would be possible.”

FUNDRAISER IDEAS:

As with any organization, funding is a top priority. So here are a few proven programs:

 

 

FAMILY OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE EVENTS: (FREE to the general public)

Introduced in 2014 our USAYESS Family Outdoor Experience (F.O.E.) events are intended to introduce youth in elementary school through high school and their families to firearm safety, shooting sports, including competitive shooting, wildlife and wildlife habitat conservation. These one day (Saturday) events are free to the general public. Youth get to experience Skeet, Trap, Archery, .22 rifle target shooting and BB Guns while under the care of certified instructors. Conservation groups are on site to teach about outdoor wildlife conservation. If you would like to have a booth at one of these events, please contact us at 831-229-4872.

 

 

BREAK-A-CLAY DAY

Introduced and designed back in 2000 by Dennis Rohman (Golden State YESS) and Mike Borg, as a fun way to raise funding our Break-A-Clay day is a fun filled one day event that is based on the national program Walk-A-Thon. First introduced in California this event has proven to be a huge and fun event for the team. athletes and community. Simple to implement by solicating funds based on targets broken. This program is such a huge success that other organizations have picked up on it and are designing their own programs. Either way, it's a great fundraiser.
