The USA Clay Target League is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is the independent provider of clay target shooting sports for secondary and postsecondary schools.
The League is the nation’s largest youth clay target shooting sport program with over 35,000 athletes in 2019, and is on track to reach 100,000 participating student athletes in 2025! The League offers Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays, and 5-Stand leagues to secondary and postsecondary schools across the country. The League is the only 100% school-approved clay target shooting sport program in America.
The League’s co-ed and adaptive nature are key attractions to schools nationwide. The League is fully Title IX compliant with both male and female athletes competing on the same team. Additionally, it’s an ‘adaptive’ sport, which allows students with physical disabilities to take part. The League is also the safest sport in high school and college with no reported injuries since the inception of the League in 2001. Each athlete must complete firearm safety certification before participation.
The League attracts student athletes to participate in shooting sports while creating a ‘virtual’ competition among teams. Travel is minimal because practice and competition are conducted at a shooting range near the school’s location. Conferences are determined by team size rather than geographic location for fair competition.
The League’s priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship – in that order.
