Cardinal Center hosts scholastic shooting events
The 2018 Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) National Championships will be held July 14-21 at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo. SSSF has signed a three-year agreement with the Cardinal Shooting Center to hold its annual July championships through next summer.
The SSSF National Championships is the culminating annual showcase of youth development for many Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) teams around the country. Youth teams in the SCTP and SASP have the opportunity to compete in multiple shotgun, rifle and pistol based events at the week-long event held every year beginning the second Saturday in July, when some 2,500 youth and their families gather.
SCTP will offer a High Over All (HOA) for teams that will include all of the “Trap” disciplines. Teams bringing athletes and competing in all three Trap disciplines of 16 yard Trap, Handicap Trap and Trap Doubles will have the opportunity for their team to earn a place among the top teams for a separate HOA. The “Trap HOA” will be based on a team’s top 5 athletes in 16 yard trap, top 5 athletes in Handicap Trap and top 5 athletes in Trap Doubles. That total score will be used for the team’s “Trap HOA.” Awards will be announced on the afternoon of Saturday, July 21st along with the Trap awards and overall HOA awards. Team need to have five or more athletes compete in each of the three disciplines to be eligible.
