SCTP Registration Surges Ahead of 2023 National Championship

SCTP Registration SurgesAhead of 2023 National Championship

The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) prepares for its National Championships slated for July 5th – 15th at the Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio, with the added momentum from a significant boost in registrations in 2023.

Some 3,600+ athletes from over 313 teams and 34 states have committed to over 10,000 registrations so far at this year’s competition. The breadth of this ten-day event will translate to over 2 million competition targets alone, with tens of thousands more being shot in side events, such as the last competitor standing competition that saw over 700 athletes compete at least year. The SCTP’s scoring and registration system has held up flawlessly and continues to get teams athletes squadded for Nationals events, including a team-squadded Make A Break competition, featuring an impressive offering of prizes from some of SCTP’s industry sponsors.

“We are extremely overwhelmed with this years interest in our National Championships!” exclaimed SCTP National Director and SSSF Co-President, Tom Wondrash. “The outpouring of interest along with the many new sponsors and partners will make this year’s Nationals one of the best ever and yet another record-breaking year for SCTP!” “Additionally, 154 SCTP athletes from 25 states will receive scholarships this year due to the generous support of our sponsors and partners! We couldn’t do this alone and we appreciate each and every one of them for believing in the great things we are doing for our youth!”

The SCTP is the only Industry-started youth shooting sports program in the world, established by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) in 2001. Since then, Industry has widely supported the SCTP’s ever-growing youth development program, realizing that the youth are the future of this great sport. The SCTP has been extremely thankful for the united Industry support throughout its 13-year history, and thanks them now for their continued belief in getting kids involved in the clay target sports! Starting in 2001 with just a few hundred athletes to over 24,000 athletes and coaches involved today, the organization is confident its sponsors see the value in youth shooting sports provided by the SCTP!
