The USA High School Clay Target League (USAHSCTL) provides student athletes from grades six through 12 with a coed, firearm-friendly, extracurricular activity centered around clay target shooting. Nearly 26,000 students from 804 high schools enrolled to form teams of five or more students for the 2017/18 school year. The 501(c)(3) non-profit USAHSCTL utilizes nearly 6,200 volunteers to provide fun and safe firearm experiences for today’s youth. The sport is the safest recorded high school sport, with zero reported injuries since its start. League President Jim Sable commented, “The record-setting growth we’ve seen shows the demand for alternative high school activities related to America’s longstanding outdoor traditions.” Visit usaclaytarget.com to learn more and to enroll.
