National Championship Registration begins June 6/3/19 (Noon CDT)
Student athletes and teams registered in the current spring trap shooting season for each state high school clay target league in the USA High School Clay Target League are qualified to participate. Qualifying student athletes and team must meet or exceed:
- Shooting performance requirements determined by the regular season’s overall average, AND
- Extracurricular activity participation eligibility requirements as determined by their school.
The National Championship serves to recognize and honor the top student athletes participating in the USA High School Clay Target League. Therefore the highest individual and team scoring averages will receive priority registration privileges.
Individual Competition Registration
Priority registration for the Individual Competition is determined by regular-season average. Averages of 21.0 and above are eligible to register during Tier 1. Please see the schedule below.
Year-end season average calculations are complete on 5/25/19. Student athletes are required to compete and submit scores in all competition weeks to qualify.

Individual registration for qualified student athletes will be conducted through the League’s Athlete Management System in ClayTargetGo! A $75 individual payment will be required at the time of registration.
No registration is complete until the required payment has been made.
The $75 non-refundable registration fee includes all targets (qualifying and final competitions) and an official National Championship t-shirt and pin.
Team Competition Registration
Priority registration for teams is based on the number of athletes that have qualifying regular season averages.

All submitted team members must meet tier registration average requirements.
Only one squad per team can register until Tier 3 is opened. Please see the schedule below.
