What is the Steel Challenge Shooting Association (SCSA)?:
The Steel Challenge Shooting Association is the membership organization chartered to grow and extend "speed-steel" shooting competition at the club level. It is the vehicle by which we intend to spread the "gospel" of steel shooting. Our vision is to build the SCSA into a network of affiliate clubs and individual members much as USPSA is structured. We are already finding non-USPSA clubs that have been shooting steel matches without the benefit of a supporting organization or that are excited to begin doing so.
Why did USPSA buy the Steel Challenge?:
The decision to purchase the Steel Challenge was rooted in our firm belief that there is a tremendous opportunity for growth, not only for steel shooting but also for USPSA. We are also convinced that there is much to be learned from the people who built the success story that the match has been.Steel Challenge is more than a match. It is one of the strongest "brands" in the practical shooting sports. We believe that acquiring the Steel Challenge was a step towards USPSA's strategic vision and tangibly strengthens the USPSA brand itself. By acquiring the Steel Challenge, we begin to position USPSA as the leader in practical shooting sports.
