SCTP coaches will be able to log into the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s SHOT data-system and register their athletes in any of the cyber tournaments. Teams may shoot these virtual competitions each week at their own local gun clubs where practices are normally conducted. Coaches can then enter scores into the SHOT data system where results are compiled and compared against other teams at the local, state, regional and national levels.
SCTP will conduct three separate National Virtual Matches in 2017:
- January 2 – February 12
- February 27 – April 9
- April 24 – June 4

Each of the three tournaments in the National Virtual Match series will run for 6 weeks and every youth on the team gets to participate. The top five trap scores or top vive skeet scores from the team will be used for that week’s total score. Everyone has a chance to be top shot for the week.
There is no additional cost for SCTP teams to participate in the National Virtual Match series, however all teams, coaches and athletes must be currently registered for the competition season.
