The Scholastic Clay Target Program is the largest, fastest growing, and most exciting youth clay target program in the country, said Chris Van Gorp, shooting sports coordinator for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
“Student athletes from elementary through high school and college have the opportunity to compete in sports such as trap, skeet, and sporting clays, as well as Olympic disciplines like bunker trap and international skeet, Van Gorp said.
The SCTP is a youth development program, first and foremost and we do this through the shooting sports and competitive shooting. The SCTP’s mission is to help kids reach their highest potential in becoming the best athletes and young adults they can be.
