On May 1, 2011, Keystone Shooting Park opened its doors to the public, so today is our 5th anniversary. When you’re in the middle of a tornado you have no idea just how fast things are moving around you and this is what we’ve experienced at KSP for the past 5 fives. The vision that we crafted for KSP when we created Chubb International Shooting Sports, Inc. and Keystone Shooting Park on May 1, 2006, dwarfs in comparison to what we now see before us.
A simple grass field near Dalmatia, Pennsylvania has been transformed into a state of the art Olympic shotgun sports training and competition venue where athletes from around the United States and Canada now regularly come to train and compete in pursuits of their Olympic dreams. The positive impact that KSP has on the landscape of Olympic shotgun sports in North America is incalcuable.We are greatly humbled by the many blessings that have been bestowed upon our staff, the venue and our athletes.
The standards of excellence that we’ve established are without equal. KSP is a sanctuary for athletes to learn their craft and hone their skills in a highly focused, but yet peaceful and uncomplicated environment. Time and space doesn’t allow me to list all of our many accomplishments, but all of this would not have been possible without our premier sponsors: Baschieri & Pellagri Italia, Baschieri & Pellagri USA, Eurotarget Italia, Eurotarget USA and our associate sponsorships through Perazzi Italia, Perazzi USA, Giacomo Sporting USA, Negrini Italia, Krieghoff International, 5:11 Tactical, Gerbing Outerware, Team Tischer and Sixt Rental Corporation.
The addition of the Helice ring, which will be fully operational in the very near future closes the books on Phase II of the KSP Master Plan and we’re on target to meet the time table laid out in the Master Plan goals. Phase III will be the final of the three phases and it the most abitious to say the least. Phase I and II were simply building blocks to establish the culture, exemplify the strategy and goals of our corporation and to begin training a new dynasty of athletes that will embrace a unified and highly focused standard of training that we’re confident will take them to success on the World stage. We have a bold and multi-faceted plan and we’re confident that unbrideled success will continue to come to the shoulders of our athletes and also the doorstep of our venue.

Keystone Shooting Park is proud to announce that we have once again partnered with the United States Olympic Committee to host “Olympic Day” at our range. This event is scheduled for Thursday, June 30th to coincide with the first day of the United States Junior Grand Prix in Olympic Trapshooting. This will be the 3rd consecutive year that we’ve partnered with the USOC to bring awareness to the Olympic movement.
Olympic Day was introduced in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games in June 1894 at the Sorbonne in Paris. The goal of Olympic Day is to promote the Olympic values and participation in sport across the globe regardless of age, gender or athletic ability. Our Board of Directors and Coaching Staff are extremely pleased to have drawn the support of the USOC and we look forward to sharing the virtues of the Olympic movement with the athletes in attendance at our event.

B&P is recognized around the world as the premier manufacturer of World and Olympic grade shotgun sports ammunition.

B&P’s history of innovations and their unmatched quest for excellence has allowed them to produce premium grade ammunition for the world over the past 130 years. Their rich history in Olympic shotgun sports is without equal as both they and their supported athletes have amassed an impressive list of honors to include:
8 Olympic Gold Medals
4 Olympic Silver Medals
2 Olympic Bronze Medals
11 World Cup Final Gold Medals
68 World Championship Gold Medals
75 European Championship Gold Medals
257 Italian National Championship Gold Medals
Team Keystone athletes will be fully sponsored for their ammunition needs through the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. This is a joint support package agreement between B&P Italy and B&P USA, and as part of the agreement, B&P USA will be importing the famed B&P F2 Flash cartridges for use by the Team Keystone athletes. In addition, B&P Italy will also support the ammunition needs of our athletes during future international training and competitive trips.
Jointly, B&P and KSP has established and set a course of excellence, which encompasses true vision for the future of Olympic shotgun sports in this nation. B&P and KSP are convinced and dedicated to the proposition that such an alliance will bring success to the U.S. program and in turn bare witness to the excellence of their product line to this market place.
The coaching staff and athletes of Team Keystone offers their heart felt thanks and gratitude to the management team at B&P Italy and B&P USA, for your faith in our vision and goals. GRAZIE MILLE!!!!

Your fellow competitors are praying that you ignore this information and discard its content as “Mental Voodoo”. Do you want to continue to be a “Good Shooter” or make a pro-active move to become a “Great Shooter”? Become the “DOMINATOR” or the “dominated”. IT’S YOUR CHOICE!!!
