The Tennessee Scholastic Clay Target Program (TNSCTP) has proven once again to be the top trap, skeet, and sporting clays program in the nation for boys and girls. Among the more than 3,000 athletes competing at the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation National Championships in Marengo, Ohio July 9–16, the Volunteer State came away with 100 individual and team awards and 23 national championships.
“This is one of the few sports where men and women can compete together on a team. Girls are often some of our best shooters,” said Andrew Peercy, TNSCTP Manager with the Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “It’s also a sport that participants can enjoy for the rest of their lives, earn scholarships, and even pursue Olympic opportunities.”
TNSCTP provides youth, age 9 through the 12th grade and college, an opportunity to participate in the three main shotgun shooting disciplines—trap, skeet, and sporting clays—with peers from across the state. The program is designed to teach the importance of safe firearms handling, responsibility, leadership, teamwork, and promote healthy competition. As the top competitive youth shooting program in America today, TNSCTP attracts more than 2,000 participants across the three main divisions. Several TNSCTP shooters and coaches have been chosen for Junior Olympic Development Camp, and many have competed internationally. CLICK HERE to learn more.
