Program Overview:
The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) is a team-based clay target shooting program that is changing the lives of grade, middle, and high school students nation-wide and in Iowa. Through organized clay target shooting, youth are learning lifelong skills such as firearm safety, teamwork, respect for self and others, mental focus, and self-discipline.

Sponsored by the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) and the national governing bodies of each sport, SCTP has more than 10,000 participants nationwide. In Iowa, the Scholastic Clay Target Program has joined forces with the strong tradition of Iowa high school trapshooting programs to establish a spring shooting season for organized trap, skeet, and sporting clays. Starting in March, teams are lead by certified coaches, practices are conducted, and local matches are held with neighboring teams. All of these activities lead up to the Iowa High School and SCTP Championships each May and June.
