A total of 451 student athletes representing 24 high school teams across the state participated in the Ohio State High School Clay Target League (OHSHSCTL) this spring. The OHSHSCTL is a part of the USA Clay Target League, which offers high school and college programs in 34 states.
With more than 43,000 participating athletes in the 2021-2022 school year, the non-profit USA Clay Target League is the largest youth clay target shooting sport program in the world. The league offers trap, skeet, sporting clays, and 5-stand leagues to secondary and postsecondary schools across the country.
The league is the only 100 percent school-approved clay target shooting sport program in America and the League’s co-ed and adaptive nature are key attractions to schools nationwide. The league is fully Title IX compliant with both male and female athletes competing on the same team. Additionally, it’s an ‘adaptive’ sport, which allows students with physical disabilities to take part.
