2021 SCTP Nationals Information
We welcome all of you back for another great season of outside activities in the clay target shooting world! This past year has been one for the books but it has also given us time to think and regroup, allowing some changes that we feel will be best for everybody especially considering the growth we are seeing and involvement at the National Championships!
Please read through all of the information below. Due to certain possible restrictions and gathering of large crowds and anything else that may be in place, we feel that many of these items will be for the best. We ask that you all bear with us while we work to put on the best possible National Championship that we can for you!
