More than 37,000 student-athletes will participate this spring in USA Clay Target League programs. The spring season is underway now.

To be exact, there are 37,158 student-athletes participating in USA Clay Target League (USACTL) programs this spring. Student-athletes are competing on 1,795 high school, college and homeschool teams around the country this year, and are supported by more than 10,400 coaches, team staff and other volunteers.

The 2023-2024 school year has seen more than 13,000 new athletes joining the USA Clay Target League through school team programs.

For high school student-athletes, the nine-week spring season is already underway, and will conclude May 25, 2024. Additionally, tens of thousands of student-athletes will participate in USA Clay Target League State Tournaments in June, with the top athletes in the country eligible to compete at the USA High School Clay Target League National Championship in July.

College student-athletes compete in a shorter season in the spring, and then return to compete in the fall to cap off the year at the USA College Clay Target League National Championship in early November.

Boasting nearly 52,000 participating student-athletes in the 2023-2024 school year, the non-profit USA Clay Target League is one of the largest clay target shooting organizations in the country, offering trapshooting, skeet, sporting clays and five-stand leagues to secondary and postsecondary schools across the United States.

“The League provides youth an outlet to develop their confidence, sportsmanship and teamwork without the high costs and limited playing opportunities of traditional sports,” USA Clay Target League President John Nelson said. “Clay target shooting sports are accessible to everyone, and the opportunity to participate on their school’s team influences athlete’s lives for the better.”
