Welcome to the Tennessee Scholastic Clay Target Program! Your registration fee has been received and you are now a participant in the number one youth shooting program in the United States. We hope this is the beginning of a successful season for you, and we are excited to have you on board.
As an SCTP athlete, you will have the opportunity to participate with other athletes from across Tennessee in the following events:
Held in Paris, TN from April 13-17, the Junior Olympics are an opportunity for SCTP athletes to compete in the events of Bunker Trap and International Skeet. The Junior Olympics are open to all SCTP athletes regardless of experience level and are an excellent introduction to Olympic-style shooting.
The regional shoots are a warm up for the state shoot in Nashville and are held across the state in the spring. Similar to the state shoot held in Nashville, the regional shoots are an opportunity for you to compete against other SCTP athletes in your region only. All athletes must participate in their regional shoot in order to be eligible to compete in the state shoot. Waivers are granted on a case by case basis.
On June 21-25, Tennessee's best youth shooters will descend on Nashville to compete in Sporting Clays, Trap, and Skeet. This is an opportunity to compete against the best youth shooters in Tennessee and prove your skills in front of your peers!
All SCTP athletes are eligible to participate in several hunts we organize throughout the year. Currently, we offer the opportunity to hunt the following:
Participation in our youth hunts is determined by several factors, such as proximity to the hunting or fishing site, age of participant, and hunting experience. Additionally, capacity at some hunts is limited, so athletes will be selected through a random drawing for those hunts. We are always striving to increase the number and quality of hunts we offer, and we have expanded our staff to include a youth hunts coordinator for that very purpose. If you want to hunt, you will have the opportunity to do so with TNSCTP.
Although not organized by TNSCTP, we frequently receive announcements about shoots hosted by local teams or ranges throughout the state. This is a great opportunity for more competition and to hone your skills. Please check our calendar frequently for new postings. Click here to view our calendar.
In addition to the events listed above, you will also qualify for Gamaliel Shooting Supply's Ready, Set, Pull! Program. This program will give teams access to discounted prices on all the gear needed for Trap, Skeet, and Sporting Clays such as vests, bags, eye and ear protection, pouches, ammo, firearms, and much, much more! All orders must be placed by your head coach. Please see your coach for more details.
We have recently updated our website and are always adding new content, so we encourage to check it often for updates and new features. Please visit our website at www.tnsctp.org.
It is our goal for this season that you learn safe firearms handling, responsibility, teamwork and leadership skills, and have FUN! We're looking forward to another exciting season. See you at the range.

Christmas is just around the corner and the year is winding down. The youth hunt will be here before you know it.
Remember that we will be drawing the hunters from the athletes registered by January 1.
We are working to get as many new hunters as possible and include as many teams as we can. To that end, we will need some information from you coaches.
Please gather the answers to the following questions from your athletes and have it ready for us to collect after January 4.
Given the opportunity, would you like to go hunting?
Have you ever been hunting?
Have you ever been duck hunting? Dove hunting?
Have you ever been on a TNSCTP hunt?

On February 5, athletes are invited to attend a banquet that will be emceed by Brian Staron. Brian did an excellent job last year, and you'll be sure to have a great time at the banquet.
Were also excited to announce that the one and only Buck Gardner will also be at the banquet, talking to athletes about Duck Hunting 101, duck calling techniques, and safety.
HOW TO ATTEND:
The Davis P. Rice Youth Waterfowl Hunt is an invitation only event for eligible athletes.
To be eligible for the drawing:
Athletes MUST BE under the age 16 on February 6th (the day of the hunt).

Athletes' names, who meet the criteria above, will go into a
computerized program that will select a least 100 names, randomly, to attend the hunt. Head coaches will be notified with the drawn names to contact the athletes. Should additional blind space become available or those invited be unable to attend, we will invite more athletes. Specific details about the hunt will be sent out as the event gets closer to all coaches who have athletes participating.
