COACHES! National Championship “pre-registration” opened on May 1st and is currently closed. Registration will open to the public June 1st at 6:00am CST.
New Award Group!
Many teams across the country have asked us to change to “Team Scoring” for the National Championships. While we do not want to make any changes without getting nearly 100% support, we have decided to keep this award group again this year so that coaches could get a better feel for “Team Scoring”!

Like last year, we are keeping a new award called the “SCTP Team Award”!

The SCTP Team Award will be calculated by using that teams top 5 scores for Trap, top 5 scores for Skeet and top 5 scores for Sporting Clays. Also known as “Team Scoring”.

(This is the same method used for the High School Awards, College Awards, and the HOA Awards)

30 awards, 10 in each discipline!

This will include the Senior Division (JV & Varsity) 1st through 5th places with trophies and medals.

As well as the Intermediate Division (Rookie, IE & IA) 1st through 5th places with trophies and medals.

Ammunition will be available on site!

We look forward to seeing you all at this year’s National Championships in July!

Your SCTP Team
