More and more schools are instituting clay target shooting programs and teams, and it's no wonder: Target shooting is safer than golf, teaches teamwork and patience, and offers junior shooters plenty of opportunities for scholarships. The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) is leading the way, and Winchester Ammunition just announced that it will continue feeding all those hungry shotguns through 2024.

The shooting sports continue to see an unprecedented level of participation in 2021, with perhaps none growing quite as fast as SCTP, which has had incredible success establishing youth shooting teams across the country. SCTP recruits a very diverse group of young individuals and teaches them how much fun the shooting sports are. Led by over 3,500 coaches, more than 18,000 young athletes compete through SCTP, which is part of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation, an educational-athletic organization that exists to introduce school-age youths to the shooting sports and to facilitate their continued involvement.

Winchester has supported this mission from the beginning, but in recent years has committed to the highest level of sponsor support. Winchester also stakes claim as the official ammunition of the SCTP International Team, which is comprised of the top 15 SCTP youth shooters across the country in the international disciplines.


"Winchester continues to demonstrate industry leadership with its commitment to the growth of the shooting sports and organizations like SCTP," said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition. "The SCTP leadership, coaches and young athletes drive excitement into the shooting sports. It’s a model we are proud to support."

"It has certainly been an interesting year for our program, but we have adapted and kept kids shooting all across the United States," said Tom Wondrash, national executive director for SCTP. "The overall support provided by Winchester Ammunition is unprecedented and certainly appreciated. Our athletes and coaches on the SCTP International Team are excited to have the Winchester Ammunition brand and products as part of the team’s events. We greatly value the support of Winchester Ammunition and depend on it to continue reaching youths and recruiting them into the shooting sports."
