Growth In Youth Shooting Sports Continues at SCTP National Championships

Another record-breaking season was set in July at the 2022 Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) National Championships. Hosted at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio, the annual youth shooting sports competition once again set the mark for the largest shoot in Cardinal Center history. Between the two youth programs, 39 states were represented at the National Championships.
SASP participation continues to grow throughout the nation and had a strong presence at the National Championship. Once again in 2022, the SASP broke the record for the largest action shooting event in the world. With over 2,200 entries, athletes safely fired over 500,000 rounds of ammunition without incident. SCTP participation surged as well with nearly 3,000 athletes and over 8,000 event entries during the twelve-day event schedule. This marks the largest national championship the SCTP has ever conducted, with over 1.5 million targets being thrown in competition and tens of thousands more being thrown in practice and side competitions.

A staple of additional activities at SCTP Nationals is the Last Competitor Standing or “Annie Oakley” event. This massive scale elimination event saw well over 700 clay target athletes lined up across the length of two-dozen trap fields to determine who would come home with bragging rights and impressive prizes from SCTP sponsors. 

SCTP and SASP members benefit from a year-long season, with local, state, and regional events, culminating in the National Championship each July. As the largest youth shooting sports event in the world, the youth development programs hold industry-wide support, with many sponsors present on site to support the event such as GLOCK, CZ-USA, Browning, Kolar, Beretta, Ruger, and more. Both programs serve as official youth feeders for the respective sports of USA Shooting. Athletes competing in the international disciplines of the SCTP and SASP often have Junior Olympic and Olympic goals in mind, with the youth feeding programs fostering those ambitions with additional opportunities.

Shooting sports continues to be a level-playing field where winning can be achieved without being the strongest or the fastest runner. Athletes come from a wide range of backgrounds and some that do not find their place in traditional ball sports often find success in shooting sports as well as socially. Athletes also find enormous success in youth shooting sports, regardless of gender. 1 out of every 3 of the programs’ action shooting, international skeet, and bunker trap athletes are female, with many out-shooting the males outright for high overall awards. The SASP and SCTP programs focus on team-based youth shooting sports as the catalyst for youth development into high-quality, responsible young adults.

*Golf carts and UTV’s – We expect a higher than normal amount of golf carts and UTV’s this year. It is up to you parents and coaches to make sure that athletes under the age of 16 and athletes without a current drivers license do NOT drive these carts! This has been a problem in the past and will be dealt with accordingly by the police on site. PLEASE make sure you do your part, we do not want anybody hurt!
*Do not remove any banners, posters or feather flags. These are the property of the SCTP and SASP and as such, removing them for any reason is considered stealing. You will be prosecuted and removed from the tournament. There are many new cameras installed around the facility this year and we will not give any warnings! Stealing or vandalism of any kind will be dealt with severely and end with removal from the tournament and program!
*All coaches must register at the CEB before your athletes fire their first shot. Paperwork and T-Shirts can be picked up at that time! Teams shooting international disciplines can check in at the tent between Bunker Traps 2-3 at the end of the Skeet fields. Athlete bibs can be picked up there as well as they will be assigned to each athlete.
*SCTP Supporters and sponsors will have a “2022 SCTP Sponsor” poster placed in their storefront or tent. Please patronize these folks whenever possible, they are giving back to your sport and these proceeds go towards our scholarship program!

*Everyone! Please be kind and patient! With record numbers yet again for this national championship, things take time. As always, we want to make sure everything is correct when doing award ceremonies and so on. We cannot do any awards ceremonies until all scores are in and posted, we then allow coaches and athletes to make sure their scores are correct as posted before we do any potential shoot-offs and awards. This all takes time! Please relax and be assured we are getting this done as fast as possible!

Be safe and courteous!

We sincerely hope you enjoy your record-breaking 2022 National Championships! 

SCTP Nationals Update & Information!

 The SCTP National Championships registration opens Wednesday (June 1st)!

Here are a few updates and information you may need to know for this years tournament.

 #1 – At this time – all pre-registrations that have been received are in (130+) – Payments will process this week!  At that time you will see balances cleared on the vouchers for the amount you paid during Pre-Registration. Remember, these payments are non-refundable!

#2 – With the challenge for many of juggling State shoot and Nationals pre-built squads – there were several teams who had a few issues with squads – we did our best to make sure that there were a correct number of slots for each team based on the amount they were paying for each discipline.  PLEASE CHECK YOUR VOUCHERS…. After June 1st you will be able to log in and make any and all changes to pre-registration squads. 

#3 – Several teams built their pre-built squads under the HS (High School classifications) While we do use that for our High School Awards we need everyone to be classified in SCTP – A.  This also caused some teams to not allow us to populate the squads you built so again, we chose random athletes from your team to ensure you had the number of athletes in the system based on what your payment was for.  PLEASE CHECK YOUR VOUCHERS…. After June 1st you will be able to log in and make any and all changes to pre-registration squads.

#4 – We will be monitoring and opening additional slots as we are able – please keep in mind when we open slots, that means we have to hire more help – we strategically open slots to help ensure the costs are reasonable for everyone!  

Skeet Doubles Competition – Bettinsoli USA has been newly named as the official firearm sponsor of this years Skeet Doubles competition. Four number will be picked at the end of the day on Friday, July 15th. The top 2 shooters in each of those 4 groups of numbers (total 8 shooters) will be invited to shoot a Bettinsoli Shotgun in a Make A Break format Saturday afternoon to determine the winner of the new Bettinsoli Omega Sport Shotgun! Thank you Bettinsoli for stepping up!!

International Ammunition will be available at this years National Championships. If you have Intl. ammo, please bring it as supplies will be limited! Other ammunition will be available as well through Sportsmans Den and the Cardinal Center Sporting Clays building.

College day will be Friday, July 15th from 9am – 5pm at the Hitters Building. Colleges that attended this past falls SCTP National Championships will have preferred table placement when you enter the building!
