“Aim at a high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, or the second and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally, you’ll hit the Bull’s Eye of Success.” – Annie Oakley’s Motto
The USA High School Clay Target League is 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 League’s priority are safety, fun, and marksmanship – in that order.
We believe that…
Safe and responsible handling and storage of firearms and ammunition is the first priority.
Everyone should have fun.
Participation is a privilege and not a right.
Sportsmanship needs to have a constant presence.
Students should have an equal opportunity to participate.
Ethical behavior, dignity and respect are expected.
Participants will be chemically free.
Collaborative relationships with schools and students create a positive experience.
Academic priorities must come before participation.
Adults must serve as a positive role model to students.
The success of the team is more important than individual honors.
Gun clubs are critical to the success of the League and are positive business leaders in their community.
Compliance with school, community, gun club and League rules are essential for all participants.
Shooting sports strengthens connections within families and communities for life.
Everything the League does will always be in the best interest of the students
