More Than 3,000 Youth Clay Target Shooters Converge at SCTP Nationals

EAST ALTON, Ill. (July 15, 2019) — The 2019 Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) National Championships will take place July 13-20 in Marengo, Ohio, at the Cardinal Shooting Center.  With registrations continuing to flow in during the final weeks before the championships, this will be the largest SCTP event yet, with well over 3,000 athletes from across the country expected to participate.  

“Thanks to the vision and leadership of organizations like SCTP, we are experiencing growth in youth recreational shooting opportunities,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing at Winchester.  “Winchester is proud to be a part of this incredible growth and the future of our sporting traditions looks very bright when you see these young people competing and having fun.”

SCTP has created a national network to connect teams of youth athletes and provide safe, fun events for them to learn recreational shooting disciplines and compete.  Today there are more than 16,000 athletes from 45 states participating in the program.

Winchester Ammunition® is “The Official Ammunition of SCTP” and the exclusive ammunition used by the SCTP National Team.  Whether at a local youth competition, or the Olympic finals, Winchester’s famous AA® shotshells give shooters the edge they need to perform to their very highest potential.
