 State Affiliate Contacts:

If your state does not have a state governing organization that can help introduce, grow and support youth shooting programs statewide, and you would like to implement a Youth Education in Shooting Sports (YESS) organization program, want to start a team, or you are a new coach with questions, please contact USAYESS or one of the support volunteers in your state.

USAYESS encourages each state to have its own youth shooting sports foundation, for example, the Washington Youth Shooting Sports Foundation (WAYESS). We strongly suggest and offer assistance to states interested in developing their own organization, websites and program. The role of the national foundation is to implement, grow, support, and keep structure within both the national and state organizations. Each state should have a goal of being financially self-sufficient and help build brand recognition. USAYESS recommends that the board of directors be no more than five or seven members, have no executive committee, and include all one person familiar with the games promoted on their board.

In order for a state organization to be considered and or approved as a USAYESS State partner, the state must have:

  • Five (5) USAYESS registered teams, with a minimum of five (5) athletes per team. 

  • State orgniztion must host one (1) annual State YESS Jr Clay Target Championship consisting of American Skeet, American Trap and Sporting Clays. Where available, International Skeet and Trap
    Singles may be included as separate events.

  • States may not require its members to become members of any national governing body.

  • States may not host registered junior YESS tournaments.

  • All junior YESS tournaments must be stand alone events.

  • Juniour tournaments must be open to all youth organizations which have a competitive shooting program. The states may charge non-USAYESS member fees at their events.

  • Each state must have one representative prticipate on the USAYESS annual State YESS conference call. This ensures all states are involved in the programs growth and has say in any program changes.

  • The state must send one representative to the MidwayUSA Foundation annual conference if invited by the MidwayUSA Foundation.

  • State organization must promote USAYESS and show annual USAYESS program growth.

  • States are also encouraged to host one annual Family Outdoor Experience event and encourage teams to host one annual team Break-A-Clay day fundraiser.

  • States must encourage tems to participate in the MidwayUSA Foundation fundraisers in order to grow their team endowment accounts.

Other than that, states are encouraged to run and manger their state organization as they see will best grow their program in their state.
