The SIG SAUER Academy has become the latest company to create a special discount program for the Scholastic Pistol Program (SPP). The Academy also hosts the SPP New England Spring Regional.
“SPP is a great way to get young adults into the sport of action shooting” said Adam Painchaud, SIG SAUER Academy. “The SIG SAUER Academy is world famous for our level of training, so it’s only natural for us to help the next generation of action competitors”.
“These types of discount programs are important to the continued growth of our program,” said Scott Moore, SPP Director. “Based on his years of experience, Adam has selected some great SIG SAUER models that will be great for our SPP athletes.”
The discount programs are just one of the many benefits of belonging to SPP. Teams, coaches and athletes can now receive special pricing on pistols, ammunition, ear and eye protection, .22LR conversions, timers and targets. SPP also offers a chance for young adults to compete at for state, regional and national championships. In addition to these discounts, SPP also supplies liability insurance and coaches training.
SPP is supported, in part, by founding partners GLOCK, Smith & Wesson, Action Target and Larry and Brenda Potterfield of Midway USA. Additional partners include Atlanta Arms & Ammunition, Browning, NextLevel Training, PACT Timers, Pro Ears, Remington Arms, Rudy Project, Tactical Solutions and Winchester Ammunition among others.
