Youth Pistol Teams in Phoenix, AZ area?

I have a question. Does anyone know of good youth shooting programs like the Illinois Junior Precision Shooters (http://juniorpistol.com/) in Phoenix, AZ area? My 10 year old daughter began learning to shoot a bb gun in our basement when she was six, has been shooting .22 rifle since she was 9, and joined the Illinois Junior Precision Shooters team last fall. She’s 10 now, and achieved Distinguished Expert a couple of months ago with .22 pistol. She’s going to have to gain more strength before she can hold steady with the target at 50 feet versus 30, but is working on her strength and skill.

We’re relocating to Phoenix this summer from Chicagoland and her coaches (Jim Hagearty and Coach Phil) feel that there might be good opportunities out that way but don't know of any specific coaches or teams, personally. They have said that the Ben Avery range is awesome and there are some great indoor ranges as well. We’re excited. We're not stuck on pistol although we'd like to continue the progress she's made thus far. Rifle, shotgun, etc would all be of interest as well.

Thoughts? I haven't done a ton of internetz research yet on it, but thought I'd see what some of you have to say. Thanks much!

lol...

Dad gum. In spite of the 60+ views, it seems that nobody familiar with the Maricopa County area youth scene has checked in. Perhaps I'm asking in the wrong forum. Suggestions? Thanks.
