Start a Zoot Shooters Club

~January 31st, 2011

The formation of American Zoot Shooters Association (AZSA) clubs is the best way to expand our organization. Additional clubs allow for people to get involved in Zoot Shooters on a local level without the need to travel to participate in our sport. Currently we have five clubs in four US states and one in Italy. We need more!

To start, we require at least one member of the new club to join Zoot Shooters. We would like for everyone in your new club to join but we do not demand it at this time. If you would like for your members to join the AZSA by all means do so! Forming new clubs is just the start and costs nothing. It is the individual memberships that will keep the AZSA going.

To date all of our existing clubs were formed by people participating in other disciplines like USPSA, SASS, IDPA, and many more. They already had access to a range that hosts action shooting sports. These ranges typically have established clubs that have targets and props. Having the same will be much easier starting a Zoot Shooters club. Incorporating members in a new club that have action shooting sports experience will make things safer as well. These people can act as range officers, caper designers as well as hold safety meetings and provide safe gun handling instruction.

If it looks like there is the makings for a new club, make up a name and contact us with as much information as the club is willing to share on the web. New AZSA clubs can use what is already on the website’s CLUBS page as a guide. We will then post your information and make new club announcements elsewhere (facebook, twitter and forums). The Zoot Shooters will do as much as we can to drive potential participants to you and your friends, helping your club grow.

This should be enough information to get the ball rolling. Please contact us immediately if you plan to start a new club or have any further questions. Here is a flier that can be printed and used to promote the AZSA and a new club. Please follow our RULES when holding your matches. They are ever changing and we also appreciate feedback to help us shape Zoot Shooters into something that everyone can enjoy safely!

    Nothing official yet. Keep an eye on our club page for updates. Or visit our social networks and sub-forums then post the question to possible Zoot Shooters in your area.

    Thanks but we like our name. Check out our blog “It’s (Not) All in the Name”, it explains why we chose the name Zoot Shooters. Thanks again and we hope you continue to follow us and join in the fun regardless of what we have chosen to call our action shooting sport.

    I’m in the central Indiana area and trying to get a group started. I’d be willing to travel a fair distance for shoots if a group were to start up within 3 to 4 hours drive time of Indianapolis.
