160 Indiana Students Will Participate In Clay Target League

160 students from 15 Indiana high school teams will participate in the Indiana State High School Clay Target League’s (INSHSCTL) 2019 Trap Shooting State Tournament, held June 1st at the Indiana Gun Club in Fortville, Indiana

Student athletes representing 15 high school trap teams will compete for individual and team achievements at the tournament, which is held each year following the completion of the League’s spring season.

“This League continues to be the fastest-growing activity in Indiana schools.” said John Nelson, President of the INSHSCTL, “The participation for the State Tournament has skyrocketed in the last few years. It’s very exciting to see Indiana embrace the clay target league as it has.”

Generous supporters for the State Tournament include: Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, SCHEELS, Sportsman’s Guide, and Walker’s.

This year over 200 student athletes representing 15 high school teams participated in the 2019 spring season. They were coached and supported by over 40 volunteers.

The Indiana State High School Clay Target League is a member of the USA High School Clay Target League, a division of the USA Clay Target League – a non-profit corporation. The League is the independent provider of clay target shooting sports as an extracurricular co-ed and adaptive activity for high schools and students in grades 6 through 12. The organization’s priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship – in that order. Each student is required to pass a comprehensive firearm safety education course prior to participation.

Nationwide, more than 32,000 students representing over 1,000 school-approved teams participated in the League during the 2018-19 school year.
