SCTP 2018 Virtual League Series

Registration for the Scholastic Clay Target Program 2018 Virtual League Series is now open. The virtual league series is a fun, easy and FREE way to compete with other teams across the nation without leaving your home range! Competition opportunities are available in trap and skeet for youth of all ages!

Who can participate?

Any fully registered SCTP athlete in good standing may participate in the virtual league series. There will be two sets of leagues in 2018 based on age:

  1. Grades 12 and under
  2. Collegiate

When and where are the competitions?

Each virtual series is a 150 target league that will run for 6 weeks (25 targets / week). Targets are shot at your home range or wherever it is most convenient for your team on a given week. Targets may be shot on any day of the week and scores must be recorded in the SHOT system that same week. Dates for the series are as follows:

  • Trap and skeet grades 12 and under Winter Virtual Series: February 19 to April 1
    • Registration deadline is February 18
  • Trap and skeet collegiate Spring Virtual Series: April 2 to May 13
    • Registration deadline is April 1
  • Trap and skeet grades 12 and under Spring Virtual Series: April 16 to May 27
    • Registration deadline is April 15

How can my team participate?

Teams and athletes must be fully registered with the Scholastic Clay Target Program and have their team setup in the SHOT system. After initial team registration, a coach must sign up their athletes for the Virtual League Series prior to the virtual league series registration deadlines noted above.

To complete the series, athletes must shoot 25 targets each week and coaches must record those scores to the SHOT System that same week prior to midnight each Sunday in order to successfully complete the league. Athletes may shoot their virtual scores anytime during the week including regular practices but must declare the round to count towards the virtual series prior to shooting. Coaches must collect and retain the score sheets used for virtual league series scores. Late scores cannot be accepted and athletes missing a week or coaches not turning in a score on time will result in a score of zero for the week.

Are there any prizes?

Priorities for the virtual league series include having fun, encouraging camaraderie among teammates and providing exposure to a competition atmosphere. All SCTP teams with athletes who participate and have scores entered into SHOT for all six weeks will be entered into a random drawing for a Tristar setter over/under shotgun! This gun may be used as a team firearm or for team fundraising purposes.

How do I register and enter scores for the virtual league?

Once your team is fully registered with the SCTP, follow the directions in our download to see how to register athletes and enter scores each week.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact anyone of us at the SCTP!
