The USA High School Clay Target League is very pleased to announce that 2018 will be the Inaugural year for the USAHSCTL National Championship!
The exciting event will take place July 12th-15th, and will feature a trap shooting competition for the highest-qualifying student athletes and teams throughout all affiliated state high school clay target leagues in the nation. Over 2,000 student athletes will represent their schools in the unique event, and over 5,000 spectators and dozens of exhibitors are expected to also attended.
The National Championships will be hosted by the MTA Homegrounds in Mason Michigan, which is also the home of the Michigan State High School Clay Target League’s State Tournament in June. Mason is just 20 miles south of Lansing, MI, and the facility features 44 trap fields, along with a large clubhouse, RV and camping areas, and beautiful natural scenery.
“We have been working on a national championship ever since we started expanding to other states beyond Minnesota in 2014.” Jim Sable, the founder and president of the USA High School Clay Target League, said. “Now that we are the largest youth clay target shooting program in the world, it makes sense to host a National Championship where the best athletes in the League can qualify to participate.
Registration for the National Championships will be open in late May based upon season averages. Individuals and teams with higher season averages will earnpriority registrationprivileges, with additional registration opportunities opening for lower averages until the maximum number of competitors is reached.
“Being able to host a National Championship has been a goal of the League for a number of years” said John Nelson, Vice President of the League. “It’s going to be a great event, and we are really excited to be part of this historic one-of-a-kind shooting sport event in Michigan this July.”
