100,000 student athletes nationwide by 2025!

In the last decade, the USA High School Clay Target League has grown from 30 students athletes on three teams in Minnesota to more than 32,000 registered athletes across over 1,000 teams nationwide. And with the recent introduction of the USA College Clay Target League, students are now able to continue pursuing the sport they love throughout post-secondary education.

The fun won’t stop after college. League participation has allowed students of all backgrounds and abilities to experience a safe, fun, community-oriented sport that they can participate in for the rest of their lives. Along with the friendships, skills and passion cultivated through the League, clay target athletes carry something even greater—our country’s heritage. They are the next generation of shooting sports enthusiasts; the future of our outdoor recreation clubs, conservation efforts and so much more. That’s why it’s important to maintain the momentum. With the support of large companies, small businesses, community leaders, and generous individuals, the USA Clay Target League can continue its investment in the right people and resources to power this movement.

Help the League continue to provide youth the opportunity to enjoy clay target shooting sports, be a member of a team, and grow their self-confidence while ensuring America’s shooting sports heritage for generations to come. Support our 100,000 Drive to 2025!

Words From Our Supporters

Industry, Conservation, and Athletes on the Importance of the League

Tom Landwher
If you care about conservation, and recognize that those who teach our next generation of outdoor enthusiasts foster conservation, here is your way to carry on the tradition.
Steve D. Scheel
What an opportunity for these kids, and so good for our sport and our shooting heritage. Thanks to the good folks at the USA High School Clay Target League offices, many of the young men and women shooting for their schools today will be lifelong outdoor enthusiasts, team supporters, and coaches of tomorrow.
Tommy Milner
Studies show that youth who take part in recreational shooting are also involved in hunting, fishing and camping, a fact that isn’t a coincidence. … This is why it’s so important to engage young people in shooting sports—to help them start their own legacies to pass on to their own families someday.
Genesis Munoz
I joined because I also saw a great opportunity for me and my school. I wanted to be an inspiration to the girls around my school and in the state of Texas, that we ladies can conquer and show that we can do anything—and prove that this sport isn’t just for men.
Tom Glines
Cultivating the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts ensures that our wild places, our wildlife, and our heritage thrives. We believe the grassroots level through each high school is a great way to reach thousands of kids and grow the shooting program across the nation.
