Winchester Ammunition recently announced its Top Shot Sub-Junior Program, which will award top sporting clays shooters in the country as part of the National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) Championship Tour.

The Top Shot Sub-Junior program will recognize the top four competitors, who will each receive 25 cases of Winchester AA target shotshells, along with a gear package. The winners of the year-long points race will be announced at the conclusion of the 2023 NSCA National Championship in San Antonio, Texas, on October 29.

“The shooting sports is the fastest growing activity among youth in America and the Top Shot Sub-Junior Program is another great opportunity to recognize and reward individuals who participate and compete,” Jason Gilbertson, director of marketing for Winchester Ammunition, said.

Winchester is the the official ammunition of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), and also working with the AIM Program through the Amateur Trap Shooting Association (ATA), and now our Sub-Junior Top Shoot program through the NSCA.

In 2019, Winchester became the title sponsor of the NSCA Championship Tour and the official ammo sponsor of the USA Sporting and FITASC Teams. Winchester further enhanced its commitment the announcement of the Winchester Ladies Cup in 2021, which provided women competitors a sizable increase in prize money. This prize pool encompassed the NSCA Tour events and culminates with the crowning of the Ladies Cup champion at NSCA Nationals every October.
