EAST ALTON, Ill. (May 13, 2020) — At a time when supporting the youth shooting sports could not be more important, Winchester continues as the official ammunition of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP), showing a strong commitment to thousands of young athletes and coaches around the country.
“Youth shooting sports participation through the SCTP has exploded over the past decade thanks to the organization’s tremendous leadership and coaches and parents who are dedicated to the program,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “We are extremely proud to align our legendary brand with SCTP and provide extensive support that will continue to strengthen their mission.”
Led by over 3,500 coaches, more than 18,000 young athletes compete through SCTP, which is part of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF), an educational-athletic organization that exists to introduce school-age youths to the shooting sports and to facilitate their continued involvement.
Winchester also stakes claim as the official ammunition of the SCTP International Team, which is comprised of the top 15 SCTP youth shooters across the country in the international disciplines.
“The overall support provided by Winchester Ammunition is unprecedented and certainly appreciated,” said Tom Wondrash, SCTP national executive director. “Our athletes and coaches on the SCTP International Team are excited to have the Winchester Ammunition brand and products as part of the team’s events. We greatly value the support of Winchester Ammunition and depend on it in order to continue reaching youth and recruiting them into the shooting sports.”
Winchester worked with SCTP in 2020 to create a new discounted shotshell purchase program, available only to SCTP Teams. Teams that would like to participate in future purchase programs should contact their SCTP representative or watch for upcoming announcements through SCTP communications. Watch for this and other very exciting offers coming your way this summer through SCTP membership!
