The SST Ravens Shooting Team

Shoot United™ Movie Highlights the Excitement of Youth Shooting Sports and the Pursuit of Victory

In the highly competitive world of organized youth activities, thousands of athletes across the United States are turning to shooting sports. At the high school level, shooting sports are considered the fastest growing activity, with an increase in teams, coaches, athletes, and events.

The SST Ravens, a youth shooting sports team based near Seattle, Washington, is a group of more than 20 young athletes who consider shooting sports a part of their daily lives. Their story is captured in a newly released film, “Ink in the Sky,” presented by Shoot United.

The film provides a glimpse into the lives of the young men and women of the SST Ravens during their state tournament competition. More importantly, it captures the positive messages of shooting sports. It’s time spent with friends and family, and it’s an exciting competitive environment with highly talented athletes.

“Shooting sports have taught me how to trust my instincts and focus on what I can control, like my breathing and current target,” said Kamea Herrera, a member of the SST Ravens. “Everyone on our team helps and encourages each other, including our parents and coaches. It’s great to go to the shooting range with my dad and brother. I have been lucky enough to meet so many people who share their love of shooting sports while also improving my skills.”

Each year, more than 60 million adults participate in shooting sports. It is one of the most popular recreational activities in the country, drawing millions of participants from metropolitan areas and with varying degrees of experience with firearms.

“Shooting sports are extremely inclusive, with more and more people from widely diverse backgrounds joining the community,” said Jason Gilbertson, Shoot United’s director of marketing. “SST Ravens is a team built with parents, coaches and athletes coming together, working hard and growing together as a team. Shooting sports can offer as much as any other sport out there today, and it’s easier to get started than most people think.”
