The SCTP was designed to give youth a positive experience while being a member of a team. The SCTP provides the opportunity for boys and girls in the elementary grades through high school to participate in the exciting and challenging sports of trap, skeet and sporting clays in a supportive environment taught by trained and supportive adult coaches focusing on the safe handling and use of firearms.
Using the NRA training method of Total Participant Involvement, basic courses provide hands on learning opportunities to develop shooting skills, such as; safe firearm handling, firearm parts and operation, ammunition and its function, shooting fundamentals, how to select, clean and store a firearm, and many more.
National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) and National Skeet Shooting Sports Association (NSSA) have established a Scholarship Program based on a 4-year degree program and will present a $5,000 scholarship to an eligible high school senior each year.
NRA has created a list of colleges offering shooting programs, many of which offer scholarships. Search the college list by state or shooting discipline.
