Cash awards will be based on the highest cumulative scores in the Five-Stand, Main and FITASC events. Payout for the all-around champion is $2,500, along with $1,500 for the runner-up and $1,000 for third place.
At the conclusion of the 2021 NSCA Championship Tour, the Winchester Ladies Cup trophy and $10,000 will be awarded to the three female shooters with the highest cumulative placements for the entire season. The Winchester Ladies Cup champion receives the trophy plus a $5,000 cash prize, and $3,000 will be awarded to the runner-up and $2,000 for third place.
Winchester has a long history of promoting women in the shooting sports. In addition to supporting the NSCA Championship Tour, Winchester the official ammunition of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), a group that introduces the shooting sports to thousands of young ladies each year. And Winchester representatives such as Kim Rhode, Dania Vizzi, Maddy Bernau, Becky Yackley, Taylor Thorne, Kemble DuPont and Desirae Edmonds are high-level competitive shooters in multiple disciplines such as sporting clays and 3-gun. All aim to inspire and serve as role models for the next generation.
Says Team Winchester sporting clays shooter Desirae Edmunds:
“I am continuously impressed with how Winchester brings innovative thinking into their support of the shooting sports. The Winchester commitment to actively growing participation is unparalleled, and I know many ladies who will greatly benefit from the Winchester Ladies Cup.”
