Federal Ammunition Continues Support for the Scholastic Clay Target Program

Federal Ammunition is proud to continue its dedicated support for the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP). Part of this support includes participating as a Gold level sponsor of the 2023 SCTP National Championships, recently held at the Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio. Thousands of youth participants from dozens of states attended the event.

The Scholastic Clay Target Program is one of the largest, fastest growing, and most exciting youth clay target programs in the US. They provide students from elementary through high school and college the chance to compete in sports such as trap, skeet, sporting clays and Olympic disciplines like bunker trap and international skeet.

“Our continued sponsorship SCTP organization affirms our commitment to youth shooting sports and promoting firearm safety. We are quite happy to see this program continues to grow and expand across the country,” said Jon Zinnel, Federal’s Senior Manager of Education and Conservation Programs. “The National Tournament provides a highly competitive environment while promoting the highest level of safety across the shooting ranges. Teams, Coaches, Parents and Spectators gather from across the country to shoot and compete; all while promoting firearm safety and sportsmanship.”

The SCTP’s mission is to help kids reach their highest potential in becoming the best athlete and young adults they can be. The SCTP is a youth development program, primarily and we do this through the shooting sports and competitive shooting. Learn more at:
