ACUI Clays, SCTP Announce New Partnership

ACUI Clays and SCTP announce they will join forces for collegiate clay target competition

posted on June 30, 2022

The Association of College Unions International and Scholastic Clay Target Program will join forces for the 2022-2023 collegiate shooting sports season. An email announcement sent June 30 states the new partnership “will allow the two organizations to enhance their respective programs.”

Founded in 1914, the Association of College Unions International is one of the oldest associations in higher education. ACUI started its clay target program more than 50 years ago and hosts a collegiate national championship, along with several regional events throughout the year.

Since its inception in 2001 by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the Scholastic Clay Target Program has conducted shotgun competition events for fourth graders through collegiate-level athletes. SCTP also hosts its own national championship every summer, which the organization says already has 9,000 registrations for this year.

More details about the new partnership: ACUI will use SCTP scoring and registration for all competitions. “[This] is a very good move for ACUI as well as SCTP,” said SCTP National Director Tom Wondrash. “Utilizing our SHOT system for scoring and registration will make all ACUI and SCTP College events run quickly and smoothly.”

In addition, SCTP will provide liability insurance for all collegiate athletes and coaches participating in ACUI or SCTP events.

“All of us at ACUI have seen the positive impact of the clay target shooting sports on individual students, their personal growth and maturity,” said ACUI Chief Executive Officer John Taylor. “We are excited to be strengthening and expanding our program through a new partnership with SCTP.”

In the future, both organizations will enhance SCTP’s coach training program with additional youth leadership education, along with expanded scholarship offerings.
