USA -(Ammoland.com)- New for the 2017 shooting season, the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) is offering a National Virtual Match series for all member trap and skeet teams across the country.
SCTP coaches will be able to log into the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s SHOT data-system and register their athletes for any and all of the “cyber” tournaments.
Teams may shoot these virtual competitions each week at their own local gun clubs where practices are normally conducted.
Coaches 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:
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 5 trap scores or top 5 skeet scores from the team will be used for that week’s total score. Everyone plays and everyone has a chance to be “top shot” for the week.
Teams may participate in any or all of the virtual tournaments!
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.
Additional details will be forth coming to all SCTP coaches and will also be posted on the SSSF website!
The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is responsible for all aspects of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Pistol Program (SPP) across the United States. SCTP and SPP are youth development programs in which adult coaches and other volunteers use shooting sports to teach and to demonstrate sportsmanship, responsibility, honesty, ethics, integrity, teamwork, and other positive life skills. SCTP was developed as a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) until the SSSF was created in 2007 to operate the SCTP. In 2012, SSSF created the SPP and became the managing foundation of both programs.
