Studies and modern psychology suggest having a hobby that provides measurable improvement and goal setting can contribute to a person’s well-being. Shooting leagues are a great way to see results and measure progress and we just so happen to have them happening all year round.

Cost | $10 per person per week. Warmup shooting is allowed when paying for a lane. If you want to go in cold and shoot only the League target, you may do so on a space available basis.
Prizes | 1 grand prize will be awarded to the top shooter overall (it will probably be a gun – hint hint wink wink) Prizes will also be awarded to the top shooters in each Class, and to first and second place Teams. Individuals may only win top shooter overall, once per year.
The CrossRoads Fun Shoot League will run for six weeks. Cost to members and non-members will be $10 each week. League fees may be paid in full, or each week prior to shooting that week’s target. Registrations for the league will be accepted through Week 3. Late registrations must pay for past weeks targets and shoot all of them in one visit to be caught up. A new target design and course of fire will be revealed on Monday night; participants then have from Tuesday through Friday to shoot that week’s target. This is a FUN shoot and designed to engage shooters ages 14 and up who have signed the CrossRoads waivers. Accommodations to those physically unable to perform set course of fire will be made. Ex: someone unable to stand and shoot may shoot from bench rest. CrossRoads employees will monitor the league shoot and score the targets. Registration and scores will be kept at electronically. In the event of a tie, a special target set at 15 yards will be used to determine the winner.

Youth Program, CISS - Central Iowa Scholastic Shooters
WHAT IS CISS?
The Central Iowa Scholastic Shooters (CISS) is a member organization of the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP), a Youth Development Program where adult coaches and volunteers model sportsmanship, responsibility, and teamwork while using shooting sports programs to teach these and other positive life skills to participating athletes.
CISS members participate in SASP-sanctioned speed shooting competitions with other SASP teams at the local, state and national level. All shooting is done with rimfire or centerfire handguns as well as rimfire rifles in a controlled and supervised environment.
WHO CAN JOIN?
CISS handgun teams are open to any Central-Iowa youth between the ages of 14 and 20. Previous handgun shooting experience is not required, just the desire to learn and compete in a team environment. New for 2016 is the SASP Rimfire Rifle division which will allow us to open up CISS to even those under the age of 14 who would like to get involved in competition! More details will be available at our open house events.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM OPERATE?
CISS is a not-for-profit organization funded through member dues and the generosity of sponsoring organizations and individuals. Program administration and coaching is provided by adult volunteers committed to helping young shooters foster an interest in the shooting sports, learn the value of competition, and develop positive character traits.
The Ankeny Isaac Walton League south of Elkhart, Iowa is “home base” for CISS. Weekly practices are held from April through July with periodic matches held with other Iowa-based SPP teams. CISS members have the opportunity to participate in the Iowa State SPP Championships to be held in May.
