Attention all coaches, athletes and parents!
New for the 2017 shooting season will be the SCTP “All State Team”. This team will be comprised of athletes finishing in the top five positions at their respective state shoots in trap, skeet and sporting clays, male and female athletes combined and regardless of their team affiliation!
Those top five athletes (in each discipline) attending the SCTP National Championships being held in Marengo, Ohio, July 8-15, 2017, will have their scores count toward their “All State Team” score for that discipline. They will not shoot independantly of their team and squad, however, we will just use the scores shot at nationals for their “All State Team” score. Any ties will be shot off as a squad.
Special prizes will be issued for the top three states (athletes) by order of finish and will be presented at the awards ceremonies at the tournament. These will all be five-person squads.
If an athlete that finishes in the top five (at their state shoot) does not attend the national championships, we will then take the next competitor in line that will be attending nationals in July! That could be a 6th place state finisher, 7th place or so on down the line.
We will have more criteria posted on our website soon in the red tool bar under “SCTP” and then go to the “forms and handbook” section. If you have any other questions about this great opportunity for our athlete’s, please contact the directors of development, Chet Tuinstra or Carlton Nether, or contact National Director Tom Wondrash.
