It’s fun for everyone…
The purpose of the New York State High School Clay Target League is to attract students to participate in shooting sports while creating friendly competition among high schools throughout New York!
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 NYSHSCTL 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!
Any public, private or parochial high school in New York are 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.

Is in grades 6 through 12, AND
Possesses a state-issued Firearm Safety/Hunter Education Certificate, AND
