A few details from the Pennsylvania State High School Clay Target League web site.

The purpose of the Pennsylvania State High School Clay Target League is to attract students to participate in shooting sports while creating  friendly competition among high schools throughout Pennsylvania!

With the assistance of hundreds of volunteer coaches and parents, student athletes in grades six through twelve represent their high school by competing in weekly trap shooting at their local shooting range. Scores are submitted online and compared against other high school trap teams within their conference. The PASHSCTL provides a safe, comfortable, and positive team environment that enhances a student athlete’s character and personal growth through safe, educational, and socially acceptable involvement in shooting sports.  Any high school can join!

School Eligibility — Any public, private or parochial high school in Pennsylvania is invited to participate. Teams require:

  • Approval from the school (School Board, Principal, and/or Activities/Athletic Director)
  • Use of the school name

Schools are strongly encouraged to provide a lettering program and photo in the yearbook.

What student athletes can join a team? Any Pennsylvania student is eligible to participate if he/she: Is in grades 6 through 12, AND Possesses League-approved Firearm Safety certification, AND Meets all school curricular activity eligibility requirements, AND If the team has room to accommodate the student athlete.
