The Scholastic Clay Target Program was designed to provide an opportunity
for school aged shooters up through grade 12 to display their competitive
shooting skills and abilities in three different disciplines, trap,
skeet, and sporting clays. By participating in this program young
shooters are able to earn state and national recognition while learning
first hand, the importance of safe firearms handling, commitment,
responsibility, leadership and teamwork.
Thanks to a cooperative effort between the National Shooting Sports
Foundation (NSSF) and several other key partners, including the
Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA), the National Skeet Shooting
Association (NSSA), and the National Sporting Clays Association
(NSCA), the program is experiencing phenomenal growth, media recognition,
and increasing support throughout the firearms and shooting sports
Under the guidance and direction of experienced adult coaches,
young shooters are taught basic gun handling and shooting skills.
The only requirement is that each shooter is a member of a team,
and that each team is registered with SCTP National Program office.
Families with young shooters who would like to learn more about
this exciting program are encouraged to come out on Sunday mornings
and check the program out.
