COVID-19 Requirement Updates

The safety of our coaches, athletes, parents, and volunteers is our top priority.

The City of Nashville and Davidson County has just made it mandatory for everyone to wear masks when out in public.

This includes the range where the State Championships are held. Our goal is to adhere to these policies, keep everyone safe, and make the shoot possible.

If you have masks, please bring them with you. If you do not have masks, please try to get one for each person before arriving. We will do our best to have some masks on hand, but they will be limited.

Event staff wearing green shirts will meet everyone as they arrive at the club. We will ask if everyone has masks and if anyone has any COVID symptoms.

Athletes may take their masks off while on the shooting station, but should put them on when they leave the station. Athletes should separate themselves 6 feet apart while waiting to shoot.

We understand that everyone wants to watch their athletes shoot; however, we are also asking all teams to minimize the number of spectators. This is for public safety.

Lightning and Weather Delays

As always, we will shoot in the rain but will stop for lightening. Shooting will be suspended if there is a strike within six miles of the club and will resume 20 minutes after the last lightening strike. Alerts will be given via the public address system and text alerts.

During any lightening delays, since the clubhouse will be closed, individuals are asked to return to a vehicle. On sporting clays, please go to a pavilion or the restrooms. If you must gather in a common area, please ensure you are wearing your mask.

Greetings to all athletes, parents, coaches, and supporters from across the state! On behalf of Tennessee Wildlife Federation, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2020 Tennessee SCTP State Championships.

In these unprecedented times, the Federation is incredibly grateful for your patience and continued support. From the beginning, our goal has been to keep athletes, parents, coaches, and volunteers safe. We’ve been following the Governor’s phased reopening guidelines and modifying our competition format to get our athletes back to the field as safely as possible.

In doing so, we made the decision to host our Regional competitions virtually. This gave teams time to practice and get their young athletes up to speed for the State Championships. Our athletes adapted quickly and continued to work hard, have fun, and develop valuable skills on the field.

We understand how important the State Championships are to our athletes. To make the championships possible this year, we lowered the number of competition days to reduce travel expenses and eliminated group gathering points to ensure participant safety. In addition, the Nashville Gun Club also has a few new guidelines to keep our athletes and spectators safe. Despite these changes, we expect this year’s State Championships to still be an exciting and meaningful competition for our athletes.

Thank you for all the time, effort, and resources you put into the shooting sports and supporting our young athletes.

Good luck to all of our competitors!

We’ve heard from you that sportsmen and athletes like yourself are wanting to be more informed and engage more on key conservation policy issues.

That’s why we launched a new policy action center at tnwf.org/policy.

Stay up to date on the conservation issues we’re tracking and how you can make a difference. Write elected officials, sign petitions, and participate in grassroots initiatives to move the needle on legislation affecting our wildlife and wild places.

It’s easier than ever to take action and our wildlife and wild places need conserving now more than ever.

Visit tnwf.org/policy and take action on issues that matter to you.

Shoot-Off Procedures for the 2020 State Championships


To minimize the time of exposure for participants, we are eliminating shoot-offs this year except for straight 100’s.

Trap Shoot-Off Procedures

Ties will be broken by reverse run followed by front run. Squads/teams will use a total of reverse runs. Team members who tie for the last spot will use the longest reverse run. Reverse runs are calculated from the 100th target backwards to the last miss. Front runs are calculated from the first target to the first miss.

For Trap shooters with 100 straights, a round of 25 from the 22-yard line and the 27-yard line will be shot and recorded at a designated time during the day, at the end of the event day, or Friday, July 3 (if during the day does not permit). Individual shooters will be contacted with a specific time and field.

Skeet Shoot-Off Procedures

Ties will be broken by reverse run followed by front run. Squads/teams will use a total of reverse runs. Team members who tie for the last spot will use the longest reverse run. Reverse runs are calculated from the 100th target backwards to the last miss. (The “Option” is not necessarily the 100th target, but is counted as the position shot.) Front runs are calculated from the first target to the first miss.

For Skeet shooters with 100 straights, two sets of doubles on stations 3, 4, and 5 will be shot and recorded as soon as their competition rounds are finished.

Sporting Clays Shoot-Off Procedures

Scores from random, previously selected stations will be used to break ties.
