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.
With your help, we can continue to grow the next generation of clay target athletes, conservationists and those who embrace the outdoor lifestyle. The League is off to a great start, but we have a long way to go, and we can’t do it alone. By the end of 2025, we hope to see:
