In addition, also for 2019 SCTP National Championships, Beretta USA will be sponsoring the “Beretta Scholarship”! This scholarship will be awarded to the top athlete in Skeet (male or female) shooting a Beretta Shotgun!

Athletes competing in these events at the SCTP National Championships just need to complete an online survey before their event starts.

Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Director made the following statement. “We are thrilled that Browning, Blaser USA and Beretta USA wanted to provide scholarship opportunities for our SCTP high school aged athletes. Providing scholarships is a mainstay of the SCTP program and adding these additional opportunities will impact even more of our SCTP family’s. We cannot thank Browning, Blaser USA, and Beretta USA enough for their support of SCTP and these scholarship opportunities”.

Eric Long, Jr. Wins 2018 Browning Scholarship

The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Browning are pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Browning Scholarship earned at the National Championships in Marengo, Ohio.  Now in its third year, the scholarship opportunity is open to all high school competitors in the 16-yard trap singles competition who are shooting a Browning shotgun and registered for the scholarship opportunity.

Eric Long, Jr. (Davenport, IA) bested 216 other shooters firing Brownings and tied with last year’s Browning scholarship winner, Woodrow Glazer (New Prauge, MN) shooting an impressive 199×200 and winning the tie with a reverse long run of 187 straight.  Long shot the trap singles event with his Browning 725 un-single and also shot skeet and sporting clays events with a Browning Special Sporting. Long is a member of the North Scott Trap Team with many of his teammates also shooting 725s.

Browning provided the scholarship in the amount of $6,450 based off the proceeds of a raffle for a Browning 725 conducted at the national tournament.

“I’ve been shooting Browning’s since my 8th grade year so I really appreciate Browning sponsoring the high gun scholarship at the SCTP Nationals” said Long. “This scholarship is a huge assistance for my family and I and will help me continue my education and shooting career at Iowa Central.”

Long will be attending Iowa Central Community College this fall studying criminal justice with plans for a law enforcement career. Long will also be a member of the shooting team at Iowa Central.

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation has awarded over $83,000 in college scholarships previously this year.

The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and National Skeet Shooting Association / National Sporting Clays Association (NSSA-NSCA) are pleased to announce the 2018 dates for the SCTP/NSSA/NSCA tour events. The tour is designed so SCTP youth will be able to participate in premier skeet and sporting clays events, perhaps outside of their regular SCTP season. The tour provides opportunity for SCTP youth to compete for special awards while also experiencing the environment and excitement of the top skeet and sporting clays tournaments across the country!

SCTP athletes participating in NSSA and/or NSCA registered events, (including tour events) will also be eligible for NSSA-SCTP and/or NSCA-SCTP All American Teams!

NSCA-SCTP All-American Team
The NSCA-SCTP All-American Team recognizes SCTP athletes that compete in NSCA registered sporting clays events. To be eligible for the SCTP All-American Team a shooter must be a member in good standing with NSSA/NSCA and SCTP, must shoot a minimum of 500 NSCA registered targets, and must shoot their respective SCTP state or regional shoot or the SCTP National Championships. The NSCA-SCTP All-American Team will be determined via a points system which are earned by competing and placing against other SCTP athletes. The NSCA-SCTP All-American selection will be divided into four teams which include Open Sub-Junior, Lady Sub-Junior, Open Junior, Lady Junior. Eight members will be selected to each team. Points can be earned from January 1 to December 31 with the team being selected in the Spring of the following shooting year.

Please direct questions on the team to Nathan Boyd at nboyd@nssa-nsca.com.

The NSSA-SCTP All-American selection will be divided into six teams which include Open Sub-Junior, Lady Sub-Junior, Open Junior, Lady Junior, Open Collegiate, and Lady Collegiate. Eight shooters will be selected to each of the sub-junior and junior teams. Athletes that are selected to an NSSA Sub-junior, Junior, or Collegiate Concurrent All-American Team will not be eligible to make the NSSA-SCTP All-American Team.

Over 1,000 SCTP Athletes Compete In Last Competitor Standing

One of the highlights of Nationals week for SCTP athletes is the opportunity to compete in a massive Last Competitor Standing (i.e. “Annie Oakley”) event that gives them the opportunity to win guns, gear, and even a scholarship. In this miss-and-out fun competition, up to 30 athletes per trap field try to eliminate each other by capitalizing on the previous competitor’s misses. Over 500 athletes competed each evening.

The event has two components on each of two nights: a competition for anyone who wishes to compete, with men’s and ladies winners taking home guns and other prizes, followed by a competition just for 2017 graduating seniors who competed for $1,000 scholarships presented by the NRA.
